If you’re planning to take a summer road trip with your friends or family for some rest and relaxation, you certainly don’t want the hassle of a car breakdown or flat tyre in the middle of nowhere.

That’s why car service is necessary before leaving. Car tyres are the foundation for a smooth running car. Here are some clever tips to help you prepare your car tyres for a summer road trip.

Check Tyre Pressure

Tyre pressure needs to be taken care of regularly, as poor pressure could lead to unnecessary accidents at high speeds.

Every car manual recommends a certain tyre pressure level, based on the make and model of the car. Make sure you bring your tyres to the appropriate pressure level before you leave for your road trip.

Under inflating or over inflating your tyres will ultimately lead to them giving way at high speeds, which can be extremely dangerous.

Ensure you Have a Working Spare Tyre

Never leave for a long road trip without a properly inflated spare tyre in the boot of your car.

No matter how much you have checked your tyres before leaving, there’s always the chance that a tyre could burst while driving—either because of the extreme heat or because of a sharp stone. Make sure the spare tyre is in proper working condition.

Keep in mind that even if you replace your tyres with the spare one, you must get the working tyre mended at a car service as soon as possible to place back on the wheel axle.

The spare tyre is only meant to be a replacement until you get the original tyre problem fixed.

Inspect Tyres Thoroughly

Get a car service professional to inspect the tyres for any cuts, bumps or bulges. If you feel that the tyre has a chance of giving up in the midst of your road trip, you should replace or fix the problem before you embark on your journey.

To stay safe on your road trip, ensure that you get all cuts and bumps mended before any long-term damage is caused.

Examine Tyre Treads

Tyre treads are the reason your car grips the road suitably in any condition, whether it is hot, muddy or wet. But a good grip can only occur if your tyre treads have proper depth.

If the depth starts to reduce, then it may be time to change your tyres. Never embark on long road trips with damaged treads as this will increase the chance of your car skidding off the road.

Get a professional to check the tread depth before you leave.
