Maintenance of Tyres

Maintaining Correct Tyre Pressure

There are three main reasons why maintaining the right tyre pressure is important.

  1. Safety:
    Tyres that are under inflated can overheat; and over inflated tyres can lead to poor vehicle handling on the road.
  2. Economy:
    Over or under inflated tyres suffer more damage than those with the correct pressure and need to be replaced more regularly. Vehicles with under-inflated tyres have increasedrolling resistance that require more fuel to maintain the same speed.
  3. Environment:
    Correct tyre pressures help to maintain optimum fuel efficiency. This can equate to lower Co2 emissions coming from your vehicle than those with incorrect tyre pressures and that has to be good for the environment.


Check for External Damage

Cuts, lumps and bumps are often caused by an impact between the tyre and a kerb, pothole or object in the road. If your tyre has any of these symptoms then you must have the tyre checked as quickly as possible as this sort of damage can result in sudden tyre failure.

Wheel alignment too is a very important step in maintaining and prolonging the life of your tyres. Kerbing or potholes affect your vehicles wheel alignment settings which can lead to rapid or uneven tyre wear. The car manufacturer will set your vehicles wheel alignment, so after driving it's worth a regular check to help prevent tyre wear, generally caused by incorrect wheel alignment settings.

Also emergency braking can sometimes leave your tyres with a "flat spot". This can be another reason for premature tyre removal. It is always recommended to have your tyres checked if the vehicle has been involved in an emergency manoeuvre like sudden or heavy braking. If you have any concerns or doubts about the condition of your tyres, please call for advice as soon as possible.
