Look after your car tyres

Your only contact with the road!

Always look after your tyres. Simply because they are literally the ONLY contact your car will have with the road!

Caring for your car’s tyres is so important because it will not only save you money, but also keep it safe to drive. 

Your tyres will need to have a proper grip on the road so that you can steer the car properly. If your tyres are in poor condition they could blow out (horror!) or lose traction on wet roads and cause an accident.

Always check the recommended tyre pressures in your manual and the tyre itself. Check them regularly because it will actually help with your fuel efficiency. If Tyres are over or under pressure, they wear unevenly and will need to be replaced sooner.

Wheel alignment is another common cause of uneven tyre wear. This happens when the wheels are out of alignment, but we can check this for you and get you sorted.

And last but not least, your annual Warrant of Fitness (WOF) checks require a minimum tyre thread depth. 

Drive safe out there!
