We spoke with Kevin Byrnes, Fixed Operations Manager at Zupps Mt Gravatt Mitsubishi & Peugeot about all things tyres.
Why is tyre safety important?
Your tyres are what are the closest point of contact to the road. The size of this contact is about the size of the palm on your hand. So with that limited amount of actual tyre touching the ground, you want to have the best tyre possible for driving safety.
It’s important to inspect your tyres regularly for any wear, tear and damage to avoid any sudden problems.
It’s hard to know whether your tyres are chipped, cracked or something that will start wearing tyres. For that reason, it’s a good idea to have a professional inspect your tyres every year.
Tyre safety also saves you money. Under inflated tyres can actually cost you money with increased rolling resistance causing you to use excess fuel. Under of over inflated tyres also accelerate wear and tear.
By checking all of this, you’ll be optimising your savings.
What needs to be checked with tyres?
In between car servicing and maintenance, the main areas to look at include tyre pressure, tread and there are no obvious markings which might lead to an unexpected tyre explosion. At high speeds, the risk increases.
