Tyre Care for Women-(This includes Everyone really)

Tyre Care for Women-Don’t think that because you are a woman you are exempt from checking the tyres on your car and making sure it is running well.

While many notice odd sounds as they drive or shaky handling during a trip, tyres tend to get overlooked until you hit a pothole and wind up with a flat. What you don’t realize is that tyres are important in keeping the car in control during a ride. They grip the road and keep your automobile firmly on course. But tyres need care just like any piece of equipment and it really won’t take too much of your time to keep them working well.( We promise).

Tyre Care for Women-Tyre Inflation

Make sure your tyres are properly inflated. Not only will this ensure they will be performing the way they should, but it will also increase your fuel mileage, which translates to fuel savings. And we just love the word savings, don’t we ladies? To check the Air Pressure on your own, use a pressure gauge which can easily be purchased at just about any car equipment store. Make sure to check your tyre pressure when the tyres are cold or wait until 3 hours after you’ve driven to check it. Insert the pressure gauge into valve stem of your tyre. The gauge will pop out and indicate a number which will refer to the tyre pressure. To figure out the recommended  pressure for your tyre, look at the sticker found on the driver’s door of your vehicle or in your owner’s manual.

Tyre Care for Women-Tyre Rotation

We’re all for extending the life of a tyre if that means we can defer the expense further into the future. Tyre rotation is one of the recommended ways with which you can get the most out of Tyre Care for Women.  When the tyres are rotated and moved to a different position on your car, this allows them to wear evenly and equally. The recommended  rotation is every 6 months.

Tyre Care for Women-Tyre Balance

Now it sounds odd, but wheel Dynamic Balancing is exactly that- after your wheel is mounted, it is checked for areas that are heavier or lighter. Weights are then added to the interior or

exterior of the wheel to balance it out. Why do the wheels even need to be balanced, you ask? An off balance wheel can result in wobbly handling of the car or bouncing. This results in uneven tread wear, increased vibration and unnecessary stress on your vehicle. Tyres should be balanced when your purchase new ones, when you have a tyre replaced, or when a

weight is dislodged or removed.

Tyre Alignment 

As technical as it may sound, this is simply adjusting the angle of the wheels in order for the wheels to work as they are intended. Proper wheel alignment will allow for the correct tread wear and will allow the car to travel straight without pulling to one side. While newly purchased cars have their tyres aligned going out of the factory, you should have your tyres aligned if you have hit something substantial like a large pothole or an embankment, if you notice a difference in the handling of your car from before, and if you notice a wear pattern developing on the outer edges of the tread area.

Now that you know what to do to keep your tyres working well, do remember that except for checking your pressure, the other items need to be handled by professionals and experts when it comes to all things that have to do with tyres. Just like you know how to keep your teeth healthy, you’re not going to try and fill a cavity on your own, are you? You would want a professional who knows what he is doing to take charge. The same should be said of your tyres. After all, the tyres are what keep your car gripped to the road. You want them to be handled by someone who knows a thing or two about Tyre Care for Women.

Tyre maintenance- Lack of knowledge is increasing road risk for young drivers – FleetNews

Lack of tyre maintenance is increasing road risk for young drivers FleetNews Young drivers are at a greater risk of being involved in a tyre related accident through a lack of regular tyre maintenance, according to a new survey commissioned by…

Tyre maintenance neglected by the younger drivers

There is no doubt that the younger drivers are not concerned about their tyre maintenance responsibilities. It is a very rare sight in my tyre depot to see younger drivers buying tyres, or at least new tyres, I can’t speak for the second hand tyre market, as we are not part of it but I suspect that this is the part of the tyre sector that younger drivers may buy their tyres.

It also seems to be the young men who are the main culprits, the young ladies do buy tyres and have their cars serviced more often, but the sector

that covers younger drivers do not appear to buy tyres from the standard type of tyre retailer or online.

We fit tyres from online tyre retailers such as ASDA Tyres, and they too do not attract the Young Driver Experience, it would be interesting what sort of opinion other tyre retailers may have on this subject? Are they finding the same or is it just me in Halifax that fails to attract the younger drivers, please let me know. We see less and less young drivers now buying tyre in our depot in Halifax.

We believe that they are buying more and more part worn tyres and not thinking about the consequences to themselves and their cars, let alone other drivers on the road.

I know that tyres and Tyre maintenance is probably the last thing on young drivers minds, but it us to us all in the auto trade make them aware of the underlying dangers that making the correct choice when buying tyres. Such things as staying clear of buying unregulated illegal part worn tyres and other Tyre maintenance subjects?
