Popularity resulted following many developments and increased to such a size that a new site was sought in 2002. This resulted in the opening of our Lennox Road MOT & Tyre Centre, after further success we were pleased to open our third site, Wade Road MOT & Tyre Centre.

In April 2011 we opened our fourth site, Basingstoke Value Tyres, in response to growing customer requests for budget tyres due to the recession.
