Superior Motorcycle Tyre Fitting
Our state of the art tyre fitting machines are specific for motorcycle tyre changing and are complete with plastic coated grippers and rim protection on the head. Combine this with experienced fitters and you can be assured your bike is in good hands and treated with the utmost care.
We ensure that tyre pressure is put to recommended settings, and are correctly balanced. Finally, after fitment all tyres are water tested to check for any rim leaks so you know your top brand or budget tyres are sealed correctly.
We do not immerse wheels in water, instead they are sprayed around the seal and then carefully wiped with a soft cloth to remove any traces of tyre lube which is applied on fitment.
Motorcycle Wheel Balancing
We use the Abba super pro wheel balancer for the wheel balancing which has an accuracy of 1 gram and is used by many race circuit garages and main dealerships so you get an accurate balance every time.
Our team can balance all motorcycle wheels front and rear and have a staged adapter to suit all common sizes of wheel bearing. We also have a single sided adapter for balancing single sided swing arm model wheels that do not have the bearings in the rear wheel - for example VFR's, Ducati's, BMW's, Triumphs.
With four additional bearings on the wheel balancer, this allows almost friction free, very accurate balancing and use a variety of adhesive weights, in a choice of silver and gloss black weights which blend in well with darker rims.

"I have been using Addison's for my bike tyres for years now, I would not use any other tyre dealer. These guys look after you and your rims, I emphasise look after your rims as many places will scratch and mark them."
"Finally found a tyre firm who do a first class service they talk you through all stages of the fitting giving you options on tyre valves and they know how to look after those wheels, email for a quote and they will offer options and best of all the price is right. Will be back when I need more rubber, now I don't have to bother ringing round to find the best deal. Thanks all at Addison's"
"When it comes to my bike nothings to much trouble and changing my tyres was a long process in researching which cheap tyres I wanted to improve the bike, not just fitting like for like to suit my pocket but fit the tyres for the best performance to get the best out of my bike. This is where Addison tyres excels on everyone else John Gough who like myself is an avid biker and Jason took limitless time and interest in making my mind up on the correct tyres. This case the Metzeler M5 interact they proved absolutely superb plus the machine they use, you can have complete trust your wheels are in safe hands. Price was very competitive too, recommend you try Addison's first."
"Impressed by the initial communication via e mail and text following an online quote. The price was very competitive. I was greeted on my arrival and all the staff were friendly and interested in providing a good service. The tyre fitter was superb, explaining what he had done and checking that I was happy with brake adjustment and chain tension when re-fitting the wheel. I shall use this place again both for motorcycle and car tyres despite the fact that it's hardly on my doorstep. This is the best tyre depot I have ever used. Top marks from me!"
"Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa bike tyres. Excellent service on a new set of bike tyres took my wheels in loose and they are guaranteed to not mark or scratch your wheels and they were right, my polished wheels were well looked after. After years of riding sports bike and always using Bridgestone tyres on advice given by Addison tyres I tried the new Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa on my R1 they were the cheapest in the midlands from Addison tyres I could not even find them cheaper on the net and what can I say apart from I will never use Bridgestone again these Pirelli tyres are awesome just going out for a spin with mates these tyres get super sticky, nice and durable in the centre for that extra mileage but the edges get gripper the further over you lean just having a play on the roundabouts the rubber on the tyres is getting that hot is actually pealing off like it does when your on a track day. Thanks again Addison's will be back next season for a new set!"
"Cheapest motorcycle tyres around. Needed two new tyres for my motorbike, I wanted the same type Metzeler Tourance. I could not find these tyres cheaper anywhere than Addison's. I searched all over the internet including European Suppliers, even eBay! Addison's were approximately £32 pounds cheaper than the best price I could find on the internet for both tyres. The price included fitting and balancing too. Couldn't be happier to be honest. Thanks guys"
"I'm a repeat customer for good reason, good range of tyres, good prices and a good bunch of guys! They take care fitting tyres to expensive wheels - not like someone else I used that scratched my wheel with a screwdriver to remove a weight - they'll even offer black or silver weights to best match your wheels! I'll be going back to Addison's to get my wheel refurbished, knowing they'll do a top job with that too! It's great to find a business offering old fashioned values, without the premium price tag!"

"Took my very shabby wheels to these guys and they were extremely bad! One week later returned to pick up a pair of wheels that were absolutely mint in Gun Metal Grey. Top class service given by these guys. They went one step further having my hardtail motorcycle frame powder coated too, stunning work in gloss black. Can't give these guys enough praise Cheers Guys."
"Bridgestone BT023. I went to Addison tyres to enquire about a motorcycle tyre repair. Unfortunately they were not able to repair the tyre due to the location of the puncture, with the reasons for not being able to repair being fully and professionally explained. I subsequently purchased a new tyre from Addison's at a very competitive price. The fitter was extremely professional, giving me total peace of mind that he was also a biker himself. The service and expertise given by all members of staff was top notch and I thoroughly recommend them."
"It was the first time I had visited Addison Tyres. John Gough was the guy who fitted my tyre. He is a biker who has a vast knowledge of the tyre range including the construction. He took the time and trouble to show me the various machines they used. I was very impressed with the whole lay out of the place and will be using Addison Tyres from now on. Thank you very much Jason and John."
"Motorcycle tyres excellent service from phone quote to fitting. I was really impressed by the attention to detail, nothing metal anywhere near my Aprilia wheel and a spot on wheel balance. Excellent price too! Highly Recommended to Bikers everywhere. Going back next week to get a rear tyre"
"Brilliant, went for tyres for my GSXR600, great advice, friendly staff, and the price was the cheapest I could find including the net."
"I took my GSXR 1000 here, Jason the owner advised me to fit the Pirelli Rosso Corsa, replacing my worn Dunlops. I cannot say how pleased I am with the new tyres, and the service was also five stars!"
