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.

Tyre Pressure

It is important to ensure your tyre pressure is staying consistent. If you are finding that your tyres are consistently over or under the recommended pressure despite your best efforts you should consider a service to make sure there are no underlying issues. Under pressured tyres can cause increased wear on your steering components, reduce effectiveness of braking and even just make it harder to park your car due to less mobility. Over pressured tyres can actually lower the amount of total surface of the tyre that is making contact with the road causing increased wear on the area that is making contact and less control of your vehicle overall.

Wear and Tear

Your tyres are where your car meets the road, so they are going to experience wear and tear throughout their lifespan as you drive in different conditions. It is essential to keep an eye on if that everyday wear and tear has evolved into genuine damage. Look out for cracks in the rubber or for potential debris that may have pierced the tyre, sometimes debris isn’t noticble in the pressure as it seals the hole but not replacing a tyre with debris can resort in a more dramatic puncture if the debris shifts during driving.

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.

Tread

Tyre tread is the grip give your vehicle traction on the surface of the road as you drive. Tread will naturally wear down with use and its essential that this is kept track of by you and the professionals servicing your car. If your tread is word down too far it can cause your tyres to slip and slide on roads and lower the amount of control you may have over your vehicle. It’s easy to notice when your treads are starting to wear out, the rubber of your tyres will start to lose the pattern they were installed with and look more like flat rubber. In many areas there is a legal amount of tread that must be on your tyres in order for your vehicle to be roadworthy, make sure to check with your service professional that your tyres are adequate for where you are driving your car.

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!
