Tyre wear reveals a great deal about the way the tyre has been maintained, as well as indicating possible mechanical problems with the car. Learning to recognize these problems early will save a great deal of trouble and money.
|Regular monthly inspection||Always keep your tyres inflated|
|Regular monthly inspection of your tyres will increase the chance of spotting any alignment or mechanical wear early, so small problems can be resolved before they become costly.||Always keep your tyres inflated to the vehicle manufacturer’s specifications which you will find in your owner’s handbook. Don’t forget to inflate and check the spare.|
|Constant inflating a tyre||Regular tyre rotation|
|If you are inflating a tyre more often than usual then it might well have a slow puncture. This could be caused by a nail or a sharp stone lodged in the tyre or a leaking valve. Have it checked by a tyre dealer.||Have your tyres rotated at least every 8,000km.|
