Tyre Maintenance Tips
Its Important To Periodically Check And Carry Out Maintenance On Tyres.
Check tyre inflation at least twice a month. Incorrect inflation can cause abnormal, excessive wear and tear, which in turn can cause tyre overheating, fuel overuse or even such danger as sudden air loss.
Checking Tyre Tread
Check tread regularly to see if tyres need replacing. Treadwear indicators are located at the bottom of the tread grooves in several locations around the tyre. When a tyre us worn to the point where any of them become visibly flush with the adjacent tread ribs, it is time to replace the tyre. the legal limit for the UK is 1.6mm tread depth.
