Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Star Tyres Coventry Ltd trading as Star Tyres.
Star Tyres was founded by the current owner in 2007 and the business has been a real labour of love and has flourished under his ownership with turnover increasing month on month and year by year. The business is now being sold albeit reluctantly and with a heavy heart, only so the owner can pursue other business interests in the catering industry.
Star Tyres stock a large range of new tyres for cars, vans and 4x4s. The business also stocks thousands of high quality part-worn tyres for a fraction of the cost of a new tyre.
The business offers highly competitive prices, a while you wait service and puncture repairs.
The business has a considerable number of regular customers and a number of account customers and enjoys great visibility on the internet.
