Tyre Tips

Tyre pressures

Check your car tyre pressures regularly, you can find the recommended car tyre pressure in your vehicle handbook, it's also worth checking your fuel filler flap or inside the front right hand door-strip for the tyre pressure setting information. Also, carrying extra weight in your vehicle generally requires a higher car tyre pressure setting, so look out for the 'loaded' pressure settings if you are using your vehicle to carry extra weight. Manufacturers recommend that you check all the Car Tyre Pressures every 2-4 weeks and that check should include the 'spare' tyre too.

Wheel alignment

Wheel alignment is a relatively inexpensive part of keeping your car tyres in tip top condition and maintaining optimum handling for your vehicle, so have your vehicle's wheel alignment checked regularly by a 'specialist'.

Why do we balance wheels?

If your wheels and tyres are not properly balanced the result could be uncomfortable driving and higher vehicle running costs. Your steering wheel may begin to 'wobble' at certain speeds and, as the vehicle speed increases, so can the vibrations, causing your steering wheel to 'wobble' more violently. Manufacturers do recommend that the wheel and tyre assembly is balanced before fitting to the vehicle. Always ask for wheel balancing when having a tyre repaired and keep your spare tyre balanced too, you never know if you'll need it.

The spare tyre

The spare tyre provides the means to get you on your way should one of your car tyres fail. You never know when or where a tyre may suffer a puncture and lose all its air pressure, so the spare tyre is as important as those in daily use.

It is therefore vital to familiarise yourself with the location of the tools you need to change a tyre, like the car jack and a wheel wrench to remove the bolts. It is also useful to carry a pair of gloves in your boot; changing a car tyre can be a dirty job and one that you may need to do under difficult circumstances.

Always include your spare tyre on a routine vehicle tyre pressure check. If your vehicle's spare tyre is a 'space saver' tyre, then always read the label for usage and directions.

Are tyres checked during an MoT?

During a MoT inspection, the nominated tester will check the tread on the tyre is at least 1.6mm deep across the central three quarters of the tread width going around the complete circumference of the tyre. Next to be checked are the tyres fitted to each axle, that they are of the same size, type and structure and that there are no serious cuts or bulges on the tyres. Some tyre defects may cause a vehicle to fail the MoT test.
