Rubber Wheel Stops & Tyre Stoppers
Rubber Wheel Stops & Tyre Stoppers
Rubber Wheel Stops go by a few names such as parking blocks, tyre stoppers and wheel stoppers and are used all over the UK. They serve a variety of purposes from protecting vehicles from high kerbs to assisting coaches and trucks with parking in the correct position. Wheel stoppers are different from wheel chocks in that they are permanently installed and are bolted to the ground.
We carry a broad range of parking stops from leading UK manufacturers; we have wheels stoppers to suit all sizes of vehicles, from cars to vans and even heavy goods vehicles. All can be purchased with fixings to make installation as easy as possible.

What are Rubber Tyre Stoppers used for?
Tyre stoppers for cars are to stop cars from driving forward (or backwards) into high kerbs, buildings or other vehicles. They prevent the vehicle “overshooting” the parking bay and make parking faster and easier for the driver.
When used for trucks and coaches they are used to assist with the proper alignment of the vehicle, or as a reversing aid. With larger vehicles it is often harder to determine where the rear wheels of a vehicle are, by using stops drives can feel the rear wheels make contact resulting in improved safety.
- Protect Buildings and other vehicles from impact
- Ensure vehicles park fully back within parking bays
- Provide guidance and assistance for the driver
What are our wheel stops made from?
Our wheel stops are predominantly made from recycled rubber tyres. This has two benefits, it uses recycled materials, and it also is as “soft” as the tyres that contacts it, ensuring the stopper does not cause premature tyre wear. Should a car or vehicle that is lower than anticipated park at the space it is also less likely to result in any damage if it contacts the front spoiler.
We do have access to metal wheel stops, if you require these, then please contact us on our sales line on 01905 794 875.
How Are These Stops Installed?
Installation varies depending on what type of material you are attaching the wheel stop to. We include options to choose the correct fixing type dependant on the material you are attaching the stop to on each product page.
Wheel stops should be laid out on the floor before fixing, ensuring they are the correct distance from any nearby obstacles. This distance will vary depending on the type of vehicle being arrested by the stops.
Car Wheel Stops
With two kinds available we offer a comprehensive selection car parking stops. These include GNR 1800mm long wheel stops, and our own 1000mm long wheel stops. Both are made from recycled rubber and are therefore exceptionally durable.
Truck Wheel Stops
These are taller and assist all types of trucks from HGV’s to 7.5-tonne rigid trucks with parking. They are ideal for use in parking areas at distribution centres and loading bays helping the driver judge the position of the rear of the vehicle. They are not, however, an alternative to proper chocking during loading.
Coach Wheel Stops
Used to help coaches accurately align into parking bays at coach parks or depots. These stops again assist the driver with manoeuvring the vehicle especially when reversing.
