When it comes to your car and making sure that you are keeping both yourself, your passengers, and others on the road as safe as possible, your tyres are something that should always be on top of your concern list. It is isn’t an understatement to say that bad, broken, or overused tyres can cause life-threatening incidents, so it is up to every single vehicle owner across the country to take the time to check that their own tyres are always in an acceptable (and legal) condition for the roads. If you haven’t thought about your own in a long time, then it is probably time to put it on your to-do list. Here is a list of things to do to check that your tyres are still safe.
It is essential (and a legal requirement) to have a good tread depth on your tyres to ensure that your vehicle gets good traction with the surface of the road. This is particularly important when driving in wet weather as a lack of traction can cause dangerous things like aquaplaning. If you have been driving on the same tyres for a long time, then friction may well have ground a lot of the tread depth out of them.
The pressure of your tyres is also incredibly important. You will have to refer to your car’s manual to find out what the correct pressure for your tyres should be, and this makes it an easy thing to check because you have a reference of what the ideal measurement should in fact be. Both under and overinflated tyres pose a danger threat because they can lead to your vehicle being unpredictable on the road, not to mention the fact that incorrectly inflated tyres can waste money because they increase fuel consumption.
Wear and Tear
You just generally need to be vigilant when it comes to checking on the wear and tear of your tyres. There is no doubt that they are made from, thick, durable rubber that can take a lot of damage on the roads, but there always comes a point when tyres are worn down and broken beyond repair. When looking each of them over in turn, make sure to check for anything that you think might be embedded in the rubber, along with cuts that are deeper than just surface damage, bulges, and signs of cracking on the sidewalls.
All of these checks are easy to undertake, and most are easy to fix and doing these things on a regular basis can help to both save you money and save you from putting both yourself and other drivers on the road in danger.
