Tyre Wear

Tyre wear reveals a great deal about the way the tyre has been maintained, as well as indicating possible mechanical problems with the car. Learning to recognise these problems early will save a great deal of trouble and money.

Regular monthly inspection


Regular monthly inspection of your tyres will increase the chance of spotting any alignment or mechanical wear early, so small problems can be resolved before they become costly.

Always keep your tyres inflated


Always keep your tyres inflated to the vehicle manufacturer’s specifications which you will find in your owner’s handbook. Don’t forget to inflate and check the spare.

Constant inflating a tyre


If you are inflating a tyre more often than usual then it might well have a slow puncture. This could be caused by a nail or a sharp stone lodged in the tyre or a leaking valve. Have it checked by a tyre dealer.

Regular tyre rotation


Have your tyres rotated at least every 8,000km.
