Tips for Maintaining your Tyres
Your vehicle's tyres are essential for keeping you and your passengers safe on the road. Proper tyre maintenance can also help improve fuel efficiency and extend the life of your tyres. Here are some tips for maintaining your tyres in good condition:
Check tyre pressure regularly
Proper inflation is critical for maintaining the performance and longevity of your tyres. Check your tyre pressure at least once a month, or before a long trip, using a tyre pressure gauge. Make sure the pressure matches the recommended level in your vehicle's owner manual.
Rotate your tyres regularly
Rotating your tyres at regular intervals, typically every 6,000-8,000 miles, can help ensure even wear and extend their lifespan. Consult with your vehicle's owner manual or a tyre specialist for the recommended rotation pattern for your tyres.
Get regular wheel alignments
Proper wheel alignment ensures that your tyres are properly positioned and angled for optimal performance and handling. Get your wheels aligned at least once a year or whenever you notice uneven tyre wear, pulling to one side, or vibrations.
Avoid overloading your vehicle
Overloading your vehicle can put extra stress on your tyres, leading to increased wear and tear and potentially unsafe driving conditions. Check your vehicle's weight capacity and avoid carrying too much weight or exceeding the recommended load capacity.
Avoid rough roads and obstacles
Potholes, speed bumps, and other obstacles can cause damage to your tyres, such as punctures, sidewall damage, and uneven wear. Avoid rough roads and obstacles as much as possible, and drive cautiously to minimize the risk of damage.
