Four Tips On How To Extend The Life Of Your Tyres

The tyres on your vehicle are in constant use. This means they suffer from wear and tear more than any other component on your car. As a result, replacing them can be a constant maintenance task that slowly adds up in cost. If you’re wondering how you can save some money, and extend the life of your tyres, then read on to explore the various techniques available.

Wheel Alignment

One of the best ways to extend the life of your tyres is maintaining a consistent wheel alignment. If you’re alignment is off, it often puts unnecessary strain on one or two wheels compared to the rest. Uneven distribution often leads to wear and tear on one tyre more than another, and more regular trips to the garage. What’s more, maintaining balanced wheel alignment can also improve the fuel efficiency of your vehicle, and provide a smoother ride.

Responsible Driving

This tip is one that most people are probably aware of, but safe and responsible driving will always result in longer lasting tyres. Fast acceleration, hard corners and spinning wheels wears down the rubber much quicker than smooth, controlled and slower driving. As a result, if you want to make the most of each tyre, we advise driving as responsibly as possible.

Tyre Inflation

Your tyres are designed to perform at their optimum inflations. Therefore, having over or under inflated tyres will generally result in faster degradation. A wheel which has too much air in it will tend to spin more and wear down the rubber faster. Alternatively, a flatter tyre will roll and stretch more, also resulting in wear and tear on the rubber.

Wheel Rotation

It’s only natural for some tyres to become more worn down than others. A prime example of this is if your car is rear wheel drive. In this instance, the back tyres will wear down faster than the front. By rotating your wheels every so often, you distribute this wear, resulting in a set of tyres that last longer, and can be changed all at once rather than 2 at a time.
