Here are our Top 5 tips on how to get maximum wear out of your tyres:

  • ROTATE: Rotate your tyres every 5,000 to 10,000 kms to maximize mileage.
  • WHEEL ALIGNMENT: HIGHLY recommended and should be done every time tyres are rotated or changed to ensure even tread-wear and maximize mileage.
  • CHECK OEM TYRE SIZE & INFLATION PRESSURE: make sure your vehicle is running OEM tyre size and recommended inflation pressure and is equipped with the right spare wheel & tyre; which is found on your vehicle’s OEM placard.
  • CHECK FOR UNEVEN TREAD-WEAR, PUNCTURES & BUBBLES: Whenever you stop to fill up fuel, take a quick look at your tyres to check for even tread-wear, deflated tyres or visible damage.
  • CHECK SUSPENSION & BRAKES: If your tyres have suddenly become noisy (starting to show waves or uneven wear), take your car in for a quick safety inspection.

With such a huge variety of tyres available on today’s market, choosing the most suitable tyre for your car and your needs can be tricky and stressful.

However, it all really depends on your car’s OEM specifications as well as what you intend to use your car to do ‘most of the time’. So the first and foremost advice is to think about how and where you drive ‘most of the time’.
