We believe that inspecting your car Tyres on a regular basis is not only essential for only safety it could also save you money in the long run.
A few basic checks should include checking the air pressure, overall condition and tread depth.
1. Tread depths should be checked to ensure they meet the legal minimum regulations. (Remember using a vehicle with defective tyre(s) carries the risk of being fined up to £2,500 and three penalty points for each illegal tyre.
2. Making sure your Tyre has the correct pressure at all times can also save you money in the long run. Over-inflated Tyres gives a less comfortable ride, a reduced area of contact with the road giving less grip in the day and accelerated wear on the tread centre. The benefits of a properly inflated tyre, include reduced running costs and longer tyre life.
3. The overall condition of the Tyre is also very important, scuffing of tyres against kerbs, worn suspension parts can cause irregular wear to your Tyre, so a regular visual inspection is essential to ensure safe handling on the roads in all weather conditions.
