5 Tips To Make Your Tyres Last Even Longer

 

Nothing lasts forever, even the tyres of your vehicle. Sadly, replacing your tyres require costly expenses. Make your tyres last longer with these helpful tips.

Have a monthly tyre pressure check-up

Did you know that driving with low pressure can easily shorten your tyre’s lifespan and also increases your fuel consumption?

That is why it is important to regularly check your tyre pressure and inflate it according to your specific vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations. Just make sure not to overfill your tyres to avoid uneven wear on the tread and poor traction.

Religiously align your tyres

Your suspension alignment must be checked every 5,000 to 10, 000km. This ensures your tyres have good contact with the road and won’t pull to the other side when steering.

Regularly include this in your tyre maintenance because a tyre misalignment can result to:

  • Increased fuel consumption
  • Uneven tyre wear
  • Other dangerous consequences

Rotate the tyres regularly

Do not wait for signs of wear and tear before you rotate your tyres.

Tyres must be rotated every 5,000 to 10,000 km regardless of your driving habits. This is necessary to maximise your tyres’ life and even out wear and tear since your front and rear tyres have dissimilar functions.

Road hazards must be given attention

Road hazards have a damaging effect on your tyre’s sidewall, which can result in uneven tyre pressure. This is mostly due to:

  • Hitting speed bumps and potholes
  • Braking too soon
  • Driving too fast
  • Driving on rough roads

Plan ahead to make an alternate route in order to avoid roadworks. Moreover, try to slow down when driving over a speed bump or pothole to prevent damaging your tyres.

Avoid curbs

It is never a good idea to drive over a curb just to get to the turning lane faster. Hitting the curb can damage your tyres and maximise the chances of tyre sidewall fractures.
