RAC have dedicated tyre and fuel patrols where you need them

RAC Tyre Patrols

We have dedicated Tyre Patrols strategically placed in high density breakdown volume areas. They support drivers at the roadside when a spare wheel is not available, and are able to provide a mobile tyre fitting service. This has proven very successful in keeping businesses on the move and avoiding further vehicle downtime.

RAC Fuel Patrols

We operate 29 branded, fully qualified mobile Fuel Patrols across the UK, which follow manufacturers’ guidelines and technical specifications to provide a fast and efficient service. This helps to ensure that vehicles are back on the road within the same day, avoiding wait times at the garage and what can often be high costs.

RAC patrols carry a universal spare tyre to keep you on the road

Following CO2 emission legislation, manufacturers removed the spare wheel out of new models to decrease vehicle weight - and ultimately its emissions. So breaking down as a result of a puncture could be a real inconvenience to the business.

We can now replace a wheel with our innovative ‘multi-fit wheel’, allowing the driver to take their vehicle to a replacement tyre outlet and continue their journey with minimal disruption.

Wheel and tyre faults are the single biggest category of Breakdowns that RAC attends due to these manufacturing modifications. All our Patrols carry this multi-fit wheel to help customers with a missing or flat spare wheel and double punctures. It fits 45 of the top 50 vehicles that result in the highest ‘puncture, no spare’ related recoveries.
