The Importance of Using Quality Tyres
Tyres are the connection between your vehicle and the surface of the road. A critical part of your vehicle’s suspension system, tyres are responsible for transmitting the forces of driving, steering, and braking to the surface of the road. Although tyres are easily maintained, they are often overlooked. The air inside your them and the design of the tyre influence vehicle performance, tread life, and ride comfort. Tyre maintenance is vital for getting the most out of your tires by maximizing mileage and tread wear. Our staff will help you understand the basics of tire care and maintenance, like when you should seek tire rotation, balance, and alignment. Our staff will also help you understand tyre sidewall markings, teach you the best time to purchase a new set of tyres, and show you how to choose the right set of tyres for your vehicle.
Premature tyre wear is caused by poor tire inflation levels and improper tyre rotation. Whereas correctly inflated tyres tend to have durable sidewalls, underinflated tyres often have flexible sidewalls that result in quicker sidewall wear. Overinflated tyres are also undesirable and will result in excessive center tread wear. Wheel balancing has the potential to relieve some symptoms of improper tyre wear, like excessive lean. However, improper tire wear may also be the cause of alignment issues. During any tyre repair service, our staff will be able to determine whether a tyre balancing or rotation service can solve your current set of issues. Because tyre inflation is so important, our staff will take care to follow the inflation standards recommended by the manufacturer during a new tyre installation. Overall, proper tyre inflation can lead to reduced tread movement, increased water dissipation, reduced rolling resistance, proper traction, and adequate load carrying capabilities. Our tyre service work promotes better fuel economy and longer tread life.
