Gerry is an absolute gentleman. Out the door busy on Friday afternoon and fit me in straight away for a puncture repair. Great service
One of my friends recommended Gerry at Tyreland Grand Canal so I called in as I needed a new tyre in a hurry.
He was so kind to me ( i have a new little boy to add to the equation ) and was very professional. He had it all sorted in a Matter of minutes even though he was very busy with other clients, I didn’t feel like an inconvenience compared to other places. We will definitely be recommending Gerry to our friends and we will be going back to Gerry in the future.
Thanks so much
Fantastic service! Harry looked after me yesterday, he was so efficient and friendly, makes such a difference on a dull and rainy day when the last thing you want to do is get your tyres sorted 🙂
Popped in here with a run-flat damaged by a screw. The lads fixed it up, it was quick and inexpensive! Really sound lads too.
Just had Justin twice to my home . The service and workmanship was 10 out of ten . Absolutely fabulous stuff , really appreciate all his hard work , time and effort . I’d highly recommend Justin to my work colleagues and family He was just amazing & really put my mind at ease

It is that time of the year when winter tyres are becoming a favourite subject again. As temperatures started to decline, so is the performance of summer tyres.
Winter tyres are known to perform at maximum capacity when the temperatures outside are 7C and below. Most of the commuter trips happen in early mornings and late evening times when the outside temperatures are below daytime average. Which makes winter tyres a smart choice during October – March period.
According to various sources, during the winter time in Ireland, we get 40 – 60 days with ground frost. Nothern parts of Ireland are the worst affected ones.
Let’s take an average winter day in Ireland. The temperature outside is just under 7 degrees, and the road surface is wet. When driving in these conditions at 100 km/ph speed, winter tyres will bring a car to a full stop in ~ 65 meters. Summer tyres are not as efficient during these weather conditions, and it would take ~ 70 meters to come to a complete stop.
That extra 5m can make all the difference when driving in wintery conditions.
During the winter period, just under 50% of driving accidents are as a direct result of skidding. Road insurance claims also tend to increase by an average of 25%.
There is a different type of rubber used when manufacturing winter tyres. It remains softer and increases grip in lower temperatures.
They also come with up to 4,000 sipes or cuts in the tread pattern. This feature ensures better water & snow displacement.
Latest production winter car tyres are much more durable than the predecessors. They do not wear any quicker than summer tyres.
In general winter tyres are slightly dearer when compared to equivalent summer tyres, but do ensure safer all-weather performance.
