How to improve tyre life –

No one wants to be told that their vehicle tyres need replacing…
However, by giving your vehicle tyres consistent maintenance and following these tips, you will be able to prolong your tyre life:
-Checking tyre pressure – Tyre pressure is a major factor that will prolong your tyre life. If your tyres are underinflated it can cause damage to your tyres and create a dip in the centre of your tyre – this can then lead to the outer edges wearing quicker than they should. In regards, to tyre maintenance , you should check your tyre pressure at least once a month or before a long road trip.

-Choosing the right tyres – Picking the right tyres for your vehicle is an incredibly important element when you want to extend your tyre life. There are many different forms of tyres that are enhanced to reduce rolling distance and help improve fuel economy. Also, it is crucial that you have the correct tyre size on your vehicle as this could have an impact on your safety – if you have any queries about your tyres, get in contact with us –

-Wheel alignment – Wheel alignment can also be a strong element in prolonging your tyres life, as it makes sure that your tyres are performing equally making them wear more effectively. There are a few symptoms when your vehicle may be in need of a wheel alignment. These are:
-Vehicle pulling to one side
-Steering wheel vibration
-Unusual noises
-Steering wheel is off centre when driving straight.

-Safe driving – We all know that roads may not be the smoothest of surfaces… Therefore, avoiding potholes or bumping your car against kerbs will keep your tyres in better shape. Another way to endure your tyres life would be driving more careful round corners as it will use less grip on the road surface as well as driving generally with care. Road terrain can also have an impact on your tyres due to the fact that rough or bumpy terrain creates a higher risk of your tyres getting damaged.

-Weight of the vehicle – This element does have an impact on your tyres, due to the fact that the heavier the car the harder your tyres have to work. Therefore, it would be beneficial to remove any unnecessary weight in your car as it could also improve your fuel consumption too!
