It was with great satisfaction that in March we introduced LIQUI MOLY and their premium range of oils, additives & workshop products
to Peakhurst Tyres and Mechanical. LIQUI MOLY is a worldwide brand made in Germany to superior standards and is one of the highest rated oils on the market. They also carry warranty approvals from major manufacturers such as Mercedes Benz, Toyota, BMW and Audi to name but a few... many professionals consider their oils to be second to none!
It was also apparent that our company missions closely aligned - an unequalled prioritisation of the customer and their needs...
The finest raw materials, ongoing quality inspections and compliance with the very highest specifications guarantee unbeatable quality and unique advantages for you. In LIQUI MOLY, you buy more than just a product. You get maximum benefits, accompanied by personal advice, comprehensive service and an unparalleled focus on the customer. This is our mission. With a healthy dose of common sense, an abundance of dedication and our sights set on one clear goal: to fill you with enthusiasm.
Partnering with LIQUI MOLY enables us to provide our customers with close to 4000 different options when it comes to oils and additives for cars, bikes and commercial equipment alike. Feel free to contact us to learn more about these great products.
Summit Racing Equipment is an automotive parts company with four retail stores in Tallma-
dge, Ohio; Sparks, Nevada; McDonough, Georgia; and Arlington, Texas.
Earlier this year, following pricing issues with local suppliers we partnered with Summit Racing Equipment and are now an approved dealer via their overseas supply network. Summit has been in business since 1968 and can provide parts from over 1500 recognised brands such as Edelbrock, Acel, Offenhauser, Eibach, B&M, Walbro, Sparco and more. Even factoring in shipping costs, you will be pleasantly surprised at how competitive their pricing can be.
What it means to you our customers? well whether you drive a big block Chevrolet, Ford or Mopar, or something Japanese from Toyota, Nissan, or Honda etc. you can speak to us about upgraded or modified parts for your vehicle!
PLEASE NOTE. Issues with shipping and supply following recent events such as Covid-19 means that we are experiencing major delays with delivery of orders from Summit. In addition, the decision by Edelbrock to shut down operations in California and restructure the company meant that no orders are being shipped until the end of May. Your understanding is much appreciated.
Winter is almost upon us!
As we head into the colder months, it is important you pay some attention to items on your car often forgotten or neglected:
Heater & A/C
Tyres perform the steering, braking and driving for your vehicle and form the only contact between your vehicle and the road. Surprisingly, for all that rubber you see the contact patch is comprised of 4 small patches of rubber about the size of your palm. If your tyres are worn, under-or over-inflated, you lessen the size of this contact patch and the tyres ability to do its job and pump water through the tread in the rain. This will cause the vehicle to aquaplane or skim over patches of water, restricts your ability to effectively brake and steer, and could possible result in an accident. Call in for a free inspection of your wheels and tyres to avoid any trouble going forward!
Windscreen wipers are those forgotten bits of rubber sitting on your windscreen. Over time, due to the elements, the rubber gets hard and cannot wipe the water from your windscreen leaving streaks and lessening your ability to see. A quick stop at our workshop to have one of my team inspect your wipers might just save you on that dark and rainy night driving home.
Many of you might be surprised to see the A/C system in this list. However, what a lot of folks don’t realise is that the quickest way to de-fog your cars windscreen on a cold and frosty morning is to run the A/C in conjunction with your heater. The dry air supplied by the A/C will defrost the glass quicker than just warm air alone. Be sure to speak to one of our team about checking the operation of both your A/C and heater.
The other aspect of your heating system that often gets overlooked is the build-up of leaves and debris in the space below your windscreen. Air is drawn from this area to help cool or heat the inside of your car and build up here not only impedes this airflow but can also add unpleasant odor to the air coming in.
Well, that’s it for this first edition! To show our appreciation for tuning in, here is our...
