Typical tyre damage

By far the main reason for premature tyre removal is impact damage or rim crush.  In fact, impact damage accounts for 21%* of all tyres being replaced before the tread has worn away through use.

Punctures account for 12.5%* of early tyre replacement and cuts in tread or sidewall account for 11%*.

Some of the other main reasons for premature tyre replacement include:

  • Sloped wear
  • Vibration
  • Rapid wear
  • Heel and toe wear
  • Under inflation / deflation damage
  • Fitting damage
  • Ageing
