There are a number of things you can do to prolong the life of your tyres, help you save money and keep your family safe on the road.
Check your tyre pressure regularly
Tyres lose pressure all the time, even under ideal driving conditions. Under or over-inflated tyres don’t wear evenly won’t last as long as tyres with even pressure. Tyre pressure can also affect your car’s handling and fuel efficiency.
Rotate your tyres
Rotating your tyres every 10,000 to 12,000 kilometres or every six months – whichever comes first. This will help to ensure they wear evenly.
Check the tyre treads regularly
Things to keep an eye out for:
- Visible wear bars. If you can see those little bars of hard rubber, it means your tyres need replacing.
- If your tread is less than 1.6mm deep, it’s time to get new tyres!
- Foreign objects lodged in the tread. This happens all the time and they’re usually easy to remove. But if you think it may have gone through the rubber, bring it in so we can check it for you.
- Tyres worn on the outside. It can be a sign that your tyres are under-inflated, which may mean you’re using more fuel than you need to.
- Tyres worn in the centre. This could be a sign your tyres are over-inflated, which may put you at risk of a tyre blowout.
- Feathered appearance at the edges. A saw-toothed pattern or feathery appearance at the edges of your tyres could be a sign that you need a wheel alignment.
- Uneven wear across your tyres. Usually, the front tyres will wear more quickly. But if you notice one is wearing more than the other, we suggest you have your suspension checked. If wear is greater on one side of your car, it may be time for a wheel alignment.
