ONLY STUDS NEED APPLY!

Wheel studs should be cleaned of dirt, corrosion and grease before refitting the wheels and wheel nuts. The usual rag or wire brush only does half the job and ends up being as dirty as the studs.

There is a better way! This new wheel stud cleaning tool-set from Laser Tools (part number 6602) offers a quick and easy solution to a very common workshop task.

Can be used by hand, or even better, with a cordless drill using the quick-chuck adaptor provided. Each brush is fitted with hundreds of tiny steel wires that scrub away dirt and corrosion in seconds. A More >

Bolstering its already comprehensive range of tyres for vehicles of all types and sizes, Toyo has announced the Celsius, a new all-season, all weather tyre.

Joining its already impressive range of all-season rubber, Toyo’s Celsius benefits from the firm’s years of expertise, and all at a price point that makes it accessible to the vast More >

BOOM! BETTER QUIETNESS!

Boom Mat now offers a premium peel and stick 2mm thick automotive Damping Material that offers a more effective way to reduce unwanted noise.

Road, engine and vibration noise is reduced dramatically when damping material is applied to floors, firewalls, door skins and overhead interior roof panels.

The product consists of a viscoelastic polymer layer More >
