How to Make Your Car Tyres Last

“Where the rubber hits the road” is more than an old cliché, it’s actually quite an important aspect of safety and performance when it comes to your automobile.

Your car tyres should be your first concern when it comes to travelling, especially in inclement weather. When a tyre is worn down, it no longer functions properly, leaving you susceptible to all sorts of accidents and mishaps on the road.

Read this article to learn more about keeping your tyres in good condition.

Get the Right Tyres

Your climate will determine the best tyres for you, as well as your vehicle’s manual. Tyres come in a variety of sizes, so if you don’t have your manual handy, check inside the driver’s door.

Manufacturers generally list all sorts of important information here, including your car’s tyre requirements. If you can’t find it there, look to the internet for guidance, preferably the manufacturer’s website.

All-season tyres can be great for many climates, but be sure to invest in some snow tyres if you’ll be driving through a blizzard a few months out of the year.

Some locations even require specific tyres to drive during winter months, so check the rules for your local highways to make sure you’re properly equipped.

Check Your Pressure

A tyre pressure gauge is among the easiest and cheapest of tools to utilise, and yet very few people regularly check the air pressure in their tyres.

Running on high or low pressure can cause your tyres to be more susceptible to blowouts, and uneven pressure between tyres on the car can cause mechanical issues.

Improperly inflated tyres even affect your fuel mileage, so check regularly and add air when necessary to save yourself some money. You can find the proper pressure for your tyres stamped into the rubber along the side for reference.

Get Regular Rotations

Regularly rotating your tyres at a garage will ensure even wear over time and gives professionals an opportunity to address leaks, cracks, and issues with your wheels.

Better yet, most tyre shops offer some sort of rotation package with purchase, or will even rotate your tyres for free if you buy with them.

Most tyre companies recommend getting yours rotated every few thousand miles, so do this every time you get your oil changed.

Avoid Overexposure

Whenever possible, park your vehicle in a parking garage, carport, or other protected area. Excessive heat or cold can lead to deterioration of the rubber, which can cause cracking or splitting in extreme circumstances.

Look for tiny cracking along the side walls of your tyres if you feel this could be a problem, and get this checked out as soon as possible.

Check the Tread

Use a tread depth gauge to check your tyres often. Once your tread gets too low, the tyre is no longer safe to drive on, so look for replacements to keep yourself and your family safe.

For more tips, or help with maintenance, contact a local tyre shop.
