Just a little care and maintenance can go a long way in prolonging the life of your tyres and making sure you get the maximum usage out of each set. We've put together our top tips for keeping your tyres in good shape:
- Ensure your tyres are properly inflated. This is one of the simplest things you can do to maintain your tyres, and probably the most important. Keeping your tyres at the right air pressure will help you avoid fast and uneven treadwear, improper vehicle handling and excessive heat build-up.
- Rotate your tyres at the recommended times. Moving your tyres around so that they trade places on your vehicle will ensure that they wear out uniformly. Doing this at the recommended times can preserve the balanced handling and traction of the tyres, prolong their lifespan and even give you performance advantages.
- Drive in a tyre-friendly manner! You may not realize it, but the way you drive can have a lot to do with how long your tyres will last and how well they perform. Overloading, abrupt braking, rapid acceleration and hard cornering are just some things to avoid.
