My name is Aaron Clydesdale, Depot Manager at A One Tyres in Dromore, Co Down. I’ve been working in tyres for over 25 years. With that number of years under my belt, I’ve soaked in plenty of tyre knowledge and have a wealth of hints and tips for the discerning customer, as well as sound advice for the customer who simply sees their tyres as ‘round and black’ and necessary to keep them on the move.
Over the next months I plan to post some articles to share some of this experience. I’ll offer some tips on how to get the most from your tyre to enhance fuel economy and performance. I’ll even give an insider’s view on what’s best in tyre brands in the Northern Ireland market. I’ll share insights into topics, like tyre inflation (the air or nitrogen debate), to re-groove or not to re-groove, I’ll be discussing if winter tyres are worth it and sharing my thoughts on how the right tyre can help with your household or business budgeting.
But my specialist subject is “motorbike tyres”. And no, I’m not auditioning for Mastermind, I have a keen interest in motorbikes and specialise in getting the right tyre for any kind of biker, from the tourist to the sportsman. The motorbike season is almost upon us. Hopefully I can keep you up to speed on biking events. I’d love to hear from anyone in Northern Ireland running a motorbike show, organising charity runs or random motorbike get togethers. The biker fraternity are a unique bunch. I love my job!
Watch out for my series on “Top Tyre Tips”. To mark the start of the motorbike season my next post (published soon) will be looking at Top Tyre Tips for Motorbikes. To keep up to date, add this blog to your blog list.
