Car tyres are often seen as a more or less inconsequential part of the vehicle. This could not be further from the truth. Tyres are the only contact the vehicle has with the road. Tyres really are a crucial, high-quality, expertly-engineered chassis component specially tailored to modern, high-speed cars.
Not only do they have to match a variety of different suspension systems and respond accurately to steering commands, they need to roll smoothly and be durable.
Above all, for vehicles to remain safely and securely on the road, tyres need to be able to cope with the forces exerted on them – when braking, accelerating or cornering.
This is particularly important when the road is wet and slippery, or covered in snow or ice.
So, with your safety in mind, here are some tips and advice to help you to take proper care of your tyres:
A good rule of thumb to follow: change summer tyres when they have 3 mm and winter tyres when they have 4 mm of remaining tread.
