Tyres are one of the most important components of a vehicle as they are the only parts in contact with the road.  It is therefore important to check and maintain your tyres on a regular basis. As a professional and experienced tyre safety centre, Global Tyres can help you maintain safe tyres and ensure your vehicle is always fitted with the optimal tyre.

To help you understand tyre safety and know exactly what to look for when checking a tyre, we have put together a helpful guide to tyre safety:

Checking your tyres

 

A regular tyre check should involve:

  • Checking pressures
  • Checking tread depth
  • A visual damage inspection

How to check tyre pressure

  • The recommended tyre pressure for your tyres can be found in the vehicle handbook , behind the fuel filler flap or on the drivers/passengers door pillar
  • Always check the pressures when tyres are cold and never adjust them during or just after a long journey
  • Check tyre pressures every two weeks and always replace the dust cap
  • Tyre pressure gauges can be purchased from most good motoring stores. Alternatively why not visit us for a free tyre safety check service

Tyre Pressure

To ensure optimum comfort and safety you should ensure your tyres are inflated to the manufacturers recommended pressures.   The recommended tyre pressure can usually be found in the vehicle handbook, behind the fuel filler flap or on the drivers/passengers door pillar.

Over inflated tyres cause excess wear of a tyres centre tread.

Under inflated tyres cause excess wear to the outer tread areas.
