Looking after and maintaining your tyres in the correct way can prolong the life and performance of your tyres. We have a few tips for you to read through to help you along your way:
Tyre Balancing & Wheel Alignment
If your tyre is unbalanced you may feel vibrations whilst driving the vehicle. This will also cause uneven wear to the tyres putting more pressure on one area.
Regular Tyre Check
Your car tyres need to be checked on a regular basis. Check the exterior of your tyres for any damage or signs of the ply cord and/or steel belt are visible then your tyre must be replaced before driving any further. Remove any stones and nails that may also be entrapped in the tyres tread.
The tread on a tyre should at a minimum be 1.6mm in depth. Modern tyres have a tread wear indicator and when this is exposed a new tyre must be fitted. You can also use tread measuring tools.
You must keep your tyres inflated to the pressure recommended by the manufacturer. When checking the pressure of your tyres it is best to do so when the tyre is cold. Checking your tyre pressure should be a regular thing but especially before a long journey.
