Tyre Replacement in Didsbury Withington
According to acquired data on average a tyre should last for about 25,000 miles. The average vehicle in Britain is driven for about 7,900 miles per year, so when you do the sums this means that you should consider tyre replacement in Didsbury Withington every 3 ½ years. Even if you don’t use your car very much, most tyre manufacturers recommend that you replace all the car tyres on your vehicle after 10 years.
There are many reasons why you might need to replace your tyres in Didsbury Withington. General wear and tear can be a factor as well as the tread being worn down to below the legally required minimum mm depth. Without tread the tyre is less able to provide the car with grip on a wet road and can make it impossible for a driver to stop, turn, accelerate or take a corner safely. That’s why tyre replacement in Didsbury Withington is essential.
You may ask, how do I know when a tyre is worn to the legal limit of 1.6mm depth? Every tyre has tread wear indicator bars which are moulded into the tread grooves at various intervals around the tyre. These provide an indication of when a tyre is worn to its safe limit. Once beyond this, tyre replacement in Withington is required.
In addition, damage to the tyres such as impact damage, incorrect pressure or bulges can result in the tyres in Withington needing to be replaced or repaired. In order to ensure that your tyres last for as long as possible and before you need to consider getting new tyres in Withington, maintaining the inflation pressure is important. When a tyre is inflated correctly it should wear evenly across the tread. Both an under-inflated and an over-inflated tyre can damage the tread on the tyres in different ways, for example an under-inflated tyre will cause more wear to the outer area of the tyre while an over-inflated tyre will cause wear to the centre of the tread.
You should check your tyres every so often. As part of this process you should check that the tyre pressure is correct, look at the tread wear and the general condition. To find out what the recommended inflation pressures are check your owner’s manual. Bridge Motor Company offer a free tyre check, no appointment needed.
