Tips for Tyre Care and Maintenance

Tyres which are properly maintained will be safer and will last longer than those which are neglected. Proper care and maintenance starts with the fitting of tyres to the vehicle. If not fitted properly tyres can be damaged. This will lead to a shortened tyred life or it can cause unsafe conditions for the road user.

FITTING AND REMOVAL

FACTORS THAT INFLUENCE TYRE LIFE

VEHICLE MAINTENANCE

The most serious tyre wear factor is mechanical irregularity. Mechanical irregularities will show up early on tyre wear patterns. It is therefore vital that regular inspections are undertaken to identify these problems before a tyre is ruined

 

VEHICLE LOAD AND INFLATION PRESSURE

Over and under-inflation causes reduces tyre to road contact and shortens tyre life. The tyre responds in the same manner to under inflation as to overloading. The same applies to overinflation / under loading.

Proper tyre care and maintenance is essential to ensure a safer journey and an extended tyre life. Don’t gamble with your life and the lives of others. Look after your vehicle, because a properly maintained vehicle will increase your chances of reaching your destination safely.
