How do you know if you need to change your tyres?

You need to be aware of three things when deciding if you need new tyres:

  • tread wear
  • exposure to the elements
  • tyre age

Why worry about tread wear?

Safety is one of the most significant reasons why you should worry about tread wear. Worn out tyre treads may cause your car to respond poorly in adverse weather conditions like rain or snow whereas with good treads your car will have a better grip of the road. Moreover having insufficient tread is considered illegal. Worn treads can also make other parts of your car wear prematurely.

Exposure to the elements

Exposure to elements such as heat, the sun’s ultraviolet rays and cold may cause structural changes to your tyres. These changes however are not usually a concern in moderate climates.



Tyre age

How old are your tyres? Regardless of tread wear, it is recommended that you replace your tyres at 6 – 10 years. Check the manufacturer’s recommendations on your specific tyres or enquire about the condition of your tyres in our garage.
