Did you know that while often overlooked, your car tires are very important to your safety and the safety of other road users and the safety of your own car to drive?
This is because your car’s tyres are the sole thing that connects you to the road, carry all of your vehicle’s weight, protect you from road surface imperfections, and react to driving inputs like steering, accelerating, and stopping.
How will you know when to change your car’s tyres even though you know how important they are to your safety?
If your tyre exhibits ageing symptoms
Tires do not require replacement at predetermined mileage or time intervals. Its lifespan is unpredictable, so it’s crucial to check your car’s tires for ageing symptoms. Your car’s tires will start to age and oxidise even if it is rarely used, especially if it is kept in a dry place away from sunshine and heat. A tyre’s lifespan can be shortened by a number of factors, including temperature, upkeep, storage conditions, load, speed, pressure, driving technique, and damage.
If your tyre is worn out
The most frequent types of tyre damage include cuts, tears, and bulges. The most frequent causes of tyre cuts include hitting solid or pointy foreign objects on the road, just driving over a pothole, and other environmental variables including bad road conditions and protruding bodywork. Bulges, on the other hand, show that the integrity of the tire’s internal structure has been damaged.
If you notice unusual wear
Unbalanced wheels, broken or bent wheels from potholes or poor roads, wrong inflation or tyre pressure, poor wheel alignment, and worn-out suspension that causes your car to “bounce” on bumps in the road are all reasons for uneven tyre wear. When the tread depth is less than what’s allowed
In Australia, car tyres must have a minimum tread depth of 1.6 millimetres; if it is less, your tyres must be replaced. The tire’s tread depth is determined by taking a vertical measurement from the top of the tire’s rubber to the bottom of its deepest grooves. Don’t forget to inspect your tyres’ outside for any signs of ageing or damage the next time you take a look at your car. Have a tyre specialist evaluate your vehicle or leave it to the professionals to make sure you and your family are secure the next time you drive.
