Advice & Tips - Tyres

Tyres are a very important part of your vehicles structure that are normally left alone by most owners, other than the occasional checking of tyre pressures.

Normally the only time they may get any attention paid to them, is if a puncture is found or the vehicle is having an mot or service, where it is brought to the owners notice that they may need replacing now or in the near future.

Perhaps when you have cast an eye over the tread on your own tyres, in particular the outer edges which are normally the most easily visible areas, they may have looked fine to you with plenty of tread left on them, unfortunately this can leave you with a false impression of their safe use.

Where you also need to check carefully is on the inner edge of the tyre tread, as sometimes the wear there can be far worse, to the level of being bald or even with the tyres inner cord or wire being exposed, which can substantially weaken the tyre.

This weakness, apart from the effect it could have on your licence and wallet, with points and fines, could have the worst effect of blowing out on you when you are driving, which at the very least can be frightening and at the worst could cause a bad accident.

Tyre condition and pressures, vehicle lights and under bonnet levels are still an important part in today's motoring, that needs to be carried out between services.
