Bald Tyres Can KILL !
Check your Car Tyres regularly; must be checked every week
Bringing this post forward ! We must all be surprised by the increasing amount of rainfall. Consequently, tyres are becoming even more important ! So, the millions of drivers that drive about must have noticed the very heavy downpours that we now experience.
Remember ! Its your tyres tread that moves away the water when driving on these water logged roads. I drive all over the country and am astounded at the amount of water that settles on the roads after these downpours. So, I now think that drivers who regularly use the motorways should be aware of this change in our climate.
All-Weather tyres becoming a must ?
So, the tyre manufacturers are all now making excellent “All-Weather Tyres”. Respectfully, many of our customers do now look at these products and in fact fit them to their vehicles ! Very sensible in my opinion. So in my opinion we should all be looking at all-weather tyres as a standard fitment. Because, with all this extreme weather that are experiencing then your tyres need to be able to cope ! Predictably these extreme downpours will get worse as years go by. Requiring tyres that will cope with the water making driving much safer.
Although this a bold statement it is in fact a true !
Importantly, you should Check your Car Tyres regularly. So on all vehicles including vans . Tyres should be check at least once a week. Including checking your tyres for any uneven wear, or bald patches. Significantly, this is usually the first sign of a problem with your steering geometry. Uneven tread wear could even indicate a major issue with the vehicles steering and, or suspension.
So, after checking your tyres and you notice that the tyres tread is wearing off on one side. Then it is important that you have your wheel alignment checked and if necessary adjusted. Of course many cars nowadays require Four-Wheel Alignment ! Consequently, this means that the cars rear as well as front wheels may need adjustment. Particularly common for the modern SUV type vehicles and 4x4s. Regular visual checking will also save you some money. Significantly, a damaged new steering rubber boot (for these kinds of vehicles). Damaged steering parts will cost you well over £120 these days and the prices are still rising.
Having regular checks stops parts from wearing out !
Most lady customers and indeed male customers can call into a local, reputable tyre dealer and have a free inspection by one of the staff. There are no excuses for driving your car fitted with bald pieces of rubber that look like racing slicks on a grand-Prix car.
The car steering wheel feels “out of line” and the car pulls to one side or the other. This is why you should have your tracking (wheel alignment) checked out. Naturally, including after you have had new tyres fitted. Customers do not understand the amount of hard work that a tyre does.Therefore, and how much punishment that tyres have to take. To when zooming down the motorway at 80 miles an hour ! So you see why its so important to Check your Car Tyres regularly. Bald tyres can kill ! Because they are the only things between you the road and an accident.
