Common Tyre Problems
Tyres are a part of our cars that often require the most attention by us directly. While regular servicing and upkeep is important there is upkeep we can do also. Ensuring that the air pressure is correct and you check your tyres regularly for potential punctures or grit will help reduce the need for tyre changes or emergency services.
Wear and Tear
If your tyre has received an impact, from a curb or pole for example, then you may also notice some unusual bulging start to occur. This is another sign of wear that indicates its time for a service and most likely a tyre change.
How often should you change your tyres
It is an essential part of ongoing vehicle maintenance that your tyres are occasionally changed. Setting a hard and fast timeline for how often it is required is difficult as it is going to vary from car to car depending on use, location, road quality and many other factors. But even a car in storage will have its tyres wear over time and would still require a tyre change. MOst experts agree that it should be expected that you would be changing your tyres every 3-5 years, even when not required due to damage or wear and tear.
What to expect from a Tyre service.
Your tyres pressure and general quality will usually be checked in a standard service. A specialised tyre service would be needed more for specific issues such as punctures or a tyre change. When servicing the tyres will be checked for most of the above problems and ensured to be safe to drive on. Specialists will often be able to recommend tyre changes depending on your usage of the car and what kind of wear can be expected so don’t be afraid to work with your chosen service professional to get the most out of your tyres!
