OUR TOP TEN TYRE TIPS
- All tyres slowly deflate over a period of time, therefore tyre pressures should be checked every 2-3 weeks.
- Tyre pressures should only be checked when they are cold. Your vehicle’s recommended tyre pressures are located on a placard usually on the inside edge of the driver’s door.
- Although the minimum amount of tread required for a car to be roadworthy is 1.6 mm, it’s wise to replace tyres at 2 mm, as wet-weather grip is diminished when there is only a small amount of tread.
- To check tread depth, put a match head into the tread grooves, and if any part of the head shows above the grooves it’s time to replace the tyre.
- Regularly check tyres for wear such as tears or bruises on sidewalls as well as embedded objects like nails or stones as they may lead to a puncture.
- To keep water and dirt out of tyre valves replace missing tyre valve caps.
- And most importantly with all these checks…Don’t forget the spare!
- Regular wheel balances ensure your tyres run smoothly on the road which helps to improve your vehicle’s control, especially on wet roads.
- Wheel alignments and rotations maximise the life of your tyres by ensuring your tyres wear evenly.
- Match the same tyre treads on the same axle. Different brands grip differently which can cause handling problems if mismatched.
