Inflation, depth and balance
It’s important to periodically check and carry out maintenance on tyres. Find out here about rotation, balancing, tread wear and other key aspects of maintaining tyres.
Ideally, you should check your tyre pressure at least twice a month. Incorrect inflation can cause excessive wear, which can cause tyre overheating, an increase in fuel consumption and sudden air loss from the tyre.
Treadwear indicators are placed at the bottom of the tread grooves around the tyre. It's important to check your tyre tread regularly and When the indicators are visibly flush with the adjacent tread ribs, it's time to replace the tyre.
Tyres should be accurately balanced when they are mounted to your vehicle. Unbalanced tyres cause vibration, which can lead to premature, irregular tyre wear and place unnecessary strain on the vehicle's suspension.
