We’re your highly regarded, long established local tyre retailer in the Wooler area, and your exclusive provider of General Tire products.

We know from experience that SUVs are getting more and more popular. It’s hardly surprising, since they’re regarded as powerful, comfortable, secure and very practical – both on and off-road. As a result, there’s an incredibly diverse range of vehicles available, covering seven size classes from ‘compact’ to ‘full-size’ SUV, as well as ‘subcompact’ to ‘full-size’ crossovers. The highest selling SUV in 2017 was the Nissan Qashqai, accumulating just under 65,000 sales in the UK. It’s by far and away the most popular SUV on the market.
And there are also many uses for an SUV. Perhaps you use yours for the daily school run, or nipping around town? Maybe you use it for longer journeys, like travelling up the motorway for meetings, or off-road across country as a working vehicle? You may even drive an SUV for leisure activities, or exploring.
No matter what you use your SUV for, you need tyres that you can trust. You want to enjoy the benefits of a robust, dependable tyre that can cope with any surface in all weather conditions. But you also want a comfortable, quiet ride too, and of course fuel efficiency. And then there’s the most important requirement you demand from your tyres – driver safety. You want shorter stopping distances, even when the surface is wet.
Tyres are so important, but often overlooked by many drivers. Did you know that in 2016, bad tyres contributed to 1,687 road accidents that occured due to vehicle defect, second only to defective brakes? That’s why it’s essential have good tyres fitted, like those from General Tire.
SUV drivers have a superb range of on and off-road tyres to choose from. As your local tyre specialist, the Mike Hope of Wooler team can provide you with the experience and expertise you need to make the right choice for your SUV. Highlights of the range include:
Grabber™ GT – On-road
Ideal for high-powered SUVs, and offering superb on-road performance, the Grabber GT combines outstanding reliability with a quiet and comfortable driving experience. It’s designed to deliver excellent grip on both dry and wet roads, and features Replacement Tire Monitor (RTM) technology, which provides drivers with a warning when the tyre is too worn and needs replacing. The Grabber GT is one of our most popular tyres for SUVs, and it’s little wonder with such high performance characteristics.
Grabber™ AT3 – On-road comfort, off-road reliability
When you want good all-terrain performance, but great off-road characteristics are key, the Grabber AT3 offers unparalleled grip and gives you the capabilities you need to get across mud, dirt and soft ground with confidence. It features an innovative tread pattern that grips and interlocks with loose surfaces, and an open tread shoulder ensuring efficient self-cleaning for increased traction. On-road, its ComfortBalance™ technology provides a balanced geometry that delivers noticeably less vibration and better acoustic performance on tarmac, without compromising on wet grip.
