Having durable and healthy tyres is just one of the many factors that make for a safe and cost effective driving experience. Tread, wear, and proper alignment all play a part in keeping your tyres road worthy and will also keep you out of harm’s way if checked regularly. In the UK, it is against the law to drive on any tread depth lower than 1.6mm so checking your tires for tread depth, signs of wear and unusual lumps or ridges, will keep money in your pocket and keep you out trouble on the roads.
Worn car tyres are one of the main aspects that people fail their MOT on and because tyres can be expensive, you don’t want to get caught out during your MOT and have to replace four tyres all in one go. Checking and monitoring the condition of your tyres regularly can help to prevent a big hit in one go. We can inspect your tyres and replace any car tyres that are too worn or have bump and bulges in and are at risk of blowing out.
Worn and torn tyres that aren’t fit to be used on the road will ultimately affect your steering, braking and power, which as a result will impact your manoeuvrability and your safety. To avoid this risk completely, you can book a free car health check with Havant MOT & Service Centre. One of our highly skilled technicians will advise you as to whether you require our services or not as well as any additional information you may need to know.
Too much tread wear and tear can be avoided. Below are some things that are usually looked over in regards to the health of your tyres. You can keep an eye on this yourself at home and if you think something isn’t quite right, bring your car to us at Triangle in Havant and we can fit new tyres, check old tyres, repair punctures and provide checks on wheel balancing and alignment.
If your tyres are over-inflated past their PSI, then they could be under too much stress which can create minuscule tears and splits into the sides of the tyre. The weather can also have a massive effect on over-inflated tyres with the changes in temperature. Tyres that are under-inflated can also cause issues in regards to generating a lot of wear and tear going across the centre of the tyre.
Damaged shock absorbers or brakes can result in bald spots showing up on your tyres as well as lowering the life of your tyres. If your brakes are juddering, vibrating or making noises then it might be that you need new brake pads or discs. Make sure these components aren’t affecting your tyres, and if you’re unsure, bring your car to Triangle in Havant and we’ll check it out for you. It could well be an underlying problem that is affecting your car tyres.
Book an appointment to see one of our technicians if you suspect that your tyres have received above average exposure to the road or the elements and our helpful technicians will take you through what options are available to suit every situation and budget. Your safety is paramount and we here at Havant Cars, treat your safety with the same importance.
