Look After Your Tyres and They Will Look After You

To ensure longevity of your tyres, check them regularly, looking out for and removing any stones or objects embedded in the tread. If you notice that your tyre has lumps or bulges in it – don’t hesitate – bring it to our expert team, who will inspect it thoroughly for internal damage.
Your tyres must also be correctly inflated according to the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations in the vehicle handbook.

The effects of over or under-inflated tyres include:

  • Quicker wear;
  • Shorter life span;
  • Increased fuel consumption;
  • Faster wear of tyre shoulders;
  • Weaker grip to the road.

If you are concerned about your tyre pressures, check your handbook or visit our friendly team, who will be happy to help.

Watch your Tyre Tread

Tyre tread depth must be above the legal minimum of 1.6mm throughout a continuous strip in the centre three quarters of the tread and around the entire tyre circumference. A tyre’s grip to a wet road deteriorates more rapidly in the second half of its tread life, meaning that wet stopping distances can dramatically lengthen. To ensure safety in wet conditions and when driving at high speeds, we advise that you check your tyre tread and buy new tyres well before they reach the legal minimum.
