When it comes to the maintenance of your automobile, tyre wear is one of the most common problems that you can face.

Tyre wear is also the number one reason for failure of the annual MOT check, and those who must replace their tyres constantly find it an extremely costly business.

Within this article you will find information regarding the most common causes of tyre wear as well as how to avoid these issues altogether:

Tyre Pressure

It’s recommended that you check your tyre pressure every time before a long journey, but also on a regular basis. Why is this important?

Well, low tyre pressure causes excessive wear and tear to both edges of your car’s tyres, which ultimately will end up shortening their lifespan.

Not only does it shorten your tyre’s lifespan, but low pressure also causes your car to use more fuel. By making sure that your tyres have an optimum pressure, you will save money on fuel costs and on replacing the tyres. Over-inflating your tyres is not a good idea either, as it will cause unpredictable handling.

When you are checking the tyre pressure, make sure that the tyres are cold. You shouldn’t perform tyre checks after long journeys or when the car is heavily loaded, as these factors can affect the reading.

Aggressive Driving

Another common cause of tyre damage is aggressive driving. If you accelerate quickly and break harshly, these factors will add up and be a detriment to your tyres.

Not only that, but hitting the kerb and driving over road humps can also damage your car’s tyres. When driving carefully, not only are you protecting your tyres but also yourself and your passengers.

Brake Dust

You probably have no idea what brake dust is. Well, brake dust is a combination of metal filing and carbon fibres, and is the result of friction between the brake pads and the brake disks.


Why is brake dust even a problem?  The primary problem that brake dust causes is the erosion of the tyre’s protective coating.

There are a few ways to avoid this, and these include fitting low dust brake pads, mounting dust shields, or, if you can’t spend any more money on your tyres, even washing the tyres regularly will prevent brake dust from affecting your tyres.

In conclusion, regular servicing is the key to keeping your car’s tyres in great working condition. Ultimately, you will spend a little more time on regular maintenance, but you won’t have to spend money on replacing the tyres when they break!
