Supermarket giant Asda is looking into the possibility of launching car tyre and exhaust repair businesses, similar to its US parent company Wal-Mart's "tyre and lube" centres in the United States, the Guardian reported. The paper reported an Asda company spokeswoman saying that tyre and lube is one thing that the US company does that its UK offshoot does not, and "is something that we are looking at to decide whether to go into it".
