We understand that it is easy to forget that tyres are the only point of contact between your vehicle and the road. That’s why it is extremely important to preserve the quality and performance of your tyres to ensure both your safety and your mobility. Thus, keeping your tyres in a good condition is an essential aspect of car maintenance.
Check out these 5 tyre care tips from Best Team Tyre Car Care so that you can drive confidently and safely.
Tip 1: Inspect Your Tyres Every Month
You may not always notice if one of your tyre has been damaged. Therefore, inspect your tyres regularly for wear and any damage to avoid any sudden problems. This will guarantee maximum traction and grip, helping you avoid any unpleasant surprises. Change your tyres before your tread depth is worn to 1.6mm. Correcting air pressure, as well as regular vehicle maintenance, will ensure your tyres perform at their best for the longest possible time. Also, it would be advisable to have a professional to inspect your tyre every year.
Tip 2: Perform Tyre Rotation
Tyres are often moved from one position on the car to another to ensure even wear and tear. Front tyres carry more of the car’s weight and tend to wear out at about twice the rate of rear tyres, so rotating the tyres can extend their life. Although car manufacturers differ in their recommendations, but most manufacturers advise tyres should be rotated every 8,000 to 10,000 kms.
Tip 3: Drive at a high speed can damage your tyre
When you’re driving at greater speeds, tyre will have a greater chance of being damaged by road hazards or heat build-up. High speeds can also contribute to a rapid air loss or even a sudden tire explosion, which can cause the loss of control of the vehicle.
Tip 4: Schedule for Wheel Alignment
It’s difficult to tell if your wheels and axles are correctly aligned while driving. But if your vehicle’s suspension geometry is incorrect, its handling may be altered and your safety compromised. If your tyre has come into contact with a solid object, such as a kerb or pothole, or you have noticed uneven wear on your tyres, do approach a tyre specialist to have it thoroughly inspected.
Tip 5: Service Life
Accurately predicting the serviceable life of any specific tyre in advance is not possible. A tyre is composed of various materials and rubber compounds that affect its performance. Its performance also depends upon many other factors such as weather, storage conditions, and conditions of use. That’s why we strongly encourage drivers to regularly inspect their tyres to identify anything which means that the tyre needs to be removed from service.
