Tyres are your point of contact with the road and pivotal to your safety
At some stage in the life of your vehicle, a tyre replacement is necessary. It may be because excess wear and tear on your current tyres means it’s time for a set of new tyres, or an unfortunate incident with a pothole has ripped a hole.
Alternatively, a change in seasons may prompt a tyre change, so you can optimise your car for driving in all conditions, such as when the rains start and the roads become extra slippery.
Whatever the reason, our tyre-fitting guide provides vehicle owners with all the information they need to get started. But don’t worry, out team of skilled technicians are always available to advice.
When should you replace your tyres?
The lifespan of a tyre depends on a combination of influences including: the driver’s driving habits, climate, road conditions, tyre design, and proper tyre maintenance. The big things to consider are:
Tyre Wear – All tyres wear out over time. Tread wear indicators, or wear bars, are spaced evenly through the main grooves in the tyre tread. If they are flush with the level of the tread, then the tyre should be replaced. If you notice uneven wear on the tyre – just one side, both sides, or just the middle – it’s time to change your tyres and get your alignment or inflation checked.
Climate – Too much exposure to direct sunlight, UV rays, and/or heat, can cause cracking in your tyres. When rainy season is due to start, it’s a good time to check if your tyres are still safe.
Tyre Age – The service life of a tyre is a cumulative function of the storage, rotation, and service conditions, which a tyre is subjected to throughout its life (load, speed, inflation pressure, road hazard injury, etc.).
