Ask any car owner what is one of their biggest sources of a headache is in terms of car maintenance and they’ll most likely say, “tyres.” Fixing tyres, whether replacing them or patching after that occasional slow puncture due to a pothole (aren’t those things frustrating?) can be quite an exhausting process both financially and emotionally. After all, our cars carry us from point A to point B. Being literally without wheels is an inconvenience one truly understands at that moment of being stranded.
If you’re due for a tyre change soon, you might want to make sure you get the best deal possible. In this tough economy, every little cent counts. Making your money go a long way is very important and the principle applies even in the case of changing your car.
One can’t tell as to when exactly tyres will wear out. All we can do is have a proper contingency plan since the lifespan and mileage of a tyre is determined by a wide variety of elements, including but not limited to, road conditions, environment, climate, driver behaviour and the kind of care that goes into maintaining one’s vehicle.
Here are some of the most important things to consider:
Timeframe and how long you’ve had
If you use the same set of tyres for a period of five years or more, for safety and precaution, it’s advisable that you take the car to a professional so that the tyres can be inspected and checked if they’re still in a good condition for continued driving.
If it happens that you reach a 10 year milestone with the same set, then no matter how in a good condition you think they are in, at that point you need to replace them. Your safety is of utmost importance and you must equip your vehicle with all the features that make it safe to drive.
Check the depth of the tyres’ tread
The depth tread of a tyre is essential for making sure that one’s vehicle has traction to retain a tight grip on the road’s surface. You must always be mindful of this and when you drive, you must constantly check how the friction is like when you apply brakes.
Double check the pressure
You can evaluate the pressure on the tyres by using a pressure gauge. If the air isn’t sufficient, you can inflate the tyres with more. This is also crucial to do if you’re assessing a tyre for a slow puncture.
