What does tyre balancing mean?

Q

How important are correct tyre pressures?

A

Ideally, you should check your tyre pressure at least twice a month. Incorrect inflation can cause excessive wear, which can cause tyre overheating, an increase in fuel consumption and sudden air loss from the tyre.

Q

How do I know when my tyres need to be replaced?

A

Treadwear indicators are placed at the bottom of the tread grooves around the tyre. It's important to check your tyre tread regularly and When the indicators are visibly flush with the adjacent tread ribs, it's time to replace the tyre.

Q

What does tyre balancing mean?

A

Tyres should be accurately balanced when they are mounted to your vehicle. Unbalanced tyres cause vibration, which can lead to premature, irregular tyre wear and place unnecessary strain on the vehicle's suspension.

Caring for your vehicle’s tyres is a key part of any car maintenance programme.

They are your only contact points with the road surface and must be kept in a good condition for your safety and to avoid causing unnecessary wear and tear to your vehicle.

Brakes are the most important safety device of any vehicle and one of the key pieces of technology in the design process.

Brakes are designed to be replaced around 50,000 miles. However, several factors will determine how long they last, including the make and model of your vehicle, your driving style, and what brake pads are fitted.

Your exhaust is an essential part of your vehicle, but it rarely gets the attention it deserves from drivers when it comes to maintenance.

It is a key part of the engine’s emission system and helps to funnel emissions away from the vehicle, and those inside.
