Being the only point of contact between the road and your car, it is essential to keep good quality and well maintained tyres on your vehicle. Whilst all new tyres sold in the UK are required to conform to a series of minimum standards, we believe that a premium tyre offers the best performance, durability and safety.
There are a few checks that you can do to ensure your vehicle is safe on the roads and in slippery, wet surfaces, can grip the surface well:
- Depth of tyre tread
Inadequate tread depth can compromise breaking performance, reducing your safety on the road. Therefore we would advise having your car tyres checked regularly to ensure your well-being whilst driving.
- Tyre pressure
Having the correct pressure in your tyres both optimises your performance and increases your personal safety. Having inadequate tyre pressure decreases your grip and can significantly increase your fuel consumption.
- Checking Tread for stones or other foreign bodies
Removing any stones or objects from the tread and checking for any early warning signs are all great ways to prevent premature tyre wear.
- Tyre valves tightened
It is highly important that all valves are tightened. The loss of air pressure can cause the tire to run hot or go flat - A low-pressure tire can be extremely dangerous on the road.
- General tyre wear
It is advisable to regularly have your car checked for any general wear that may occur on a day to day basis. What might be a very small problem can develop into a much more serious issue if ignored. Checking your tyres could also save you money in the future.
