WHY GET YOUR TYRES CHECKED TOO..?
Tread depth is important for your safety and the law. Check the wear indicators on the tyre grooves to see if the tread is below the legal limit of 1.6 mm. You should also inspect your tyres regularly when the tread depth is 3 mm for summer tyres and 4 mm for winter tyres. Low tread depth can reduce your grip on snow and increase your braking distance on wet roads. Driving with worn tyres is not only risky, but also illegal.
Make sure your tyres aren't too old. The lifespan of a tyre is about six years. After that, you need to replace it, even if it looks good and has low mileage. The DOT code on the tyre's sidewall shows the production date. For example, 1421 means week 14 of 2021. Don't forget to check your spare tyre too.
Tyre pressure affects your vehicle's performance, fuel efficiency and tyre lifespan. To maintain optimal tyre pressure, you should check it regularly when the tyres are cold, as heat can alter the readings. You should also keep the valve caps on and replace them if they are missing, to prevent air leakage.
Your spare tyre should have slightly higher pressure than the others, between 2 and 4 PSI (0.1 to 0.3bar) more. However, do not exceed the maximum pressure for a full load, which you can find in your owner's manual or please ask one of our friendly technicians or service advisors.
