How to Self-CheckA Tyre in 7 easy steps

Checking your tyres is really easy.

  1. Turn your front wheels to full lock, allowing you to clearly see the tyre tread.
  2. Car tyres must have a continuous minimum tread depth of 1.6mm across the central three quarters of the tyreand a minimum 1.6mm on the edges of the tyre.
  3. To check simply find the ‘wear bars’ (they run horizontally across the tyre) and visually check to see how close they are to the rest of the tyre tread. The closer they are to the tread, the closer you are to the legal 1.6mm minimum.
  4. Look for any areas where the tread is more worn – particularly the inner or outer edges
  5. Check for cracking or perishing within the tread and sidewalls.
  6. Check the side walls for any apparent cuts, bulges or damage
  7. Check the pressure. (You can normally find the specified tyre pressures inside your fuel flap or drivers door). And if you don’t want to do it yourself, simply pop down to C&R – we’ll be happy to help.

Tread depth has a huge effect on your stopping distance.

Although it may not seem like it, Tyres are one of the most important parts of your vehicle.

Come sun, rain or snow you depend on these 4 strips of rubber to flex, brake and grip and generally keep you safe…………..

So, when you choose a tyre, it’s worth remembering that you definitely get what you pay for…………

The fact is, tyres are not all the same – there’s a huge variation in things such as grip, stopping distance and the sort of wear and mileage you can expect from a tyre.

For example, in tests conducted by ‘Which’, the difference in stopping distance between a cheap tyre and a premium brand can be over 15 metres – that’s over 3 average car lengths!

Which end of that would you rather be?

And according to tests carried out by ‘Which’, cheaper tyres can last as little as 24,000 miles compared to 60,000 for a more expensive set – which given replacement costs would actually work out over 50% more expensive.

How to avoid causing uneven tyre wear

Tyres carry the full weight of our vehicles on the road, absorbing all the stresses and strains, bumps and potholes at speed – in sun, rain snow and ice.

So your tyre has a lot to put up with.

That said,there are some things that will help you get more from your tyres.

  • Avoid UNDER inflation which will cause the tyre edges to wear far more quickly.
  • Avoid OVER inflation which will cause the centre of the tyre to wear more quickly
  • Check your brakes,shock absorbers, and steering components regularly. If your brakes or shockabsorbers are faulty this can result in uneven wear patterns known as ‘flatspots’ on the tyre tread.
  • Check your wheel alignment (whether your car drifts right or left when moving) If your wheel alignment or tracking is out, this will normally cause the tyre to run out of line on the road and cause the tyre to ‘scrub’ sideways as the vehicle moves forward, and rapidly wear out your tyres
  • Check your tyres regularly for lumps, cracking, perishing, wear, cuts or objects.
