Over or under inflation
If you over-inflate your tyres, your tyres may begin to suffer from ‘centre wear’. This isn’t easy to spot as the centre of the tyres are difficult to see, but take a look under the rim of the car and you’ll notice a flat strip along the circumference that has worn down. You’ll have to be wary of how much you inflate your tyres in the future to avoid damage. If you under-inflate your tyres, ‘shoulder wear’ will appear, where the edges have rounded off. Under-inflated tyres sag slightly and cause extra wear on the edges of the tyre, so be sure you’ve inflated them enough to work effectively on the roads.
Tyre misalignment can cause ‘camber wear’, meaning the tyres have been worn down excessively on the outer side. This sort of damage is more obvious than most and you’ll be able to feel the difference when driving. You’ll have to have wheel alignment completed on your car to rectify the issue, otherwise, it will continue to damage your new tyres.
Wear and tear
Obviously your wheels take the brunt of the impact from the roads, so no matter how much of a careful driver you are, your tyres will always wear over time. It’s important you make sure you’re tyres are checked by a professional regularly and under no circumstances should tyres be used on the public road for more than 10 years after the manufacture date
Despite the toughness of rubber and tyres in general, there are still materials on the roads that can puncture the tyres and cause them to go flat. There are tyres available now, known as ‘run-flat’ tyres that can continue for miles even after suffering a puncture, these do not come as standard on all cars and normal tyres will quickly become a serious risk to the safety of you, other road users and pedestrians if they are punctured.
As time goes on, particularly if you use your vehicle regularly, you will find that your tyres will be gradually worn down and the level of grip can be greatly reduced which can be very dangerous. The legal minimum depth for tyre tread is 1.6mm, and it is important to check this regularly to ensure that your tyres meet this requirement. If you find that your tyre tread is below 1.6mm or approaching the limit, it is time to purchase a new set of tyres. If you notice some wear in the centre or at the edges of your tyres, this can be an indicator of a further issue such as faulty wheel alignment or wheel balance. If this is the case, contact a tyre specialist.
Wrong Tyre Type
There are certain tyre types that suit certain vehicles and ones that are designed specifically for certain uses. For example, high-performance cars will need specially designed high-performance tyres, whereas a family saloon car will not. Putting tyres meant for a saloon car on a high-performance vehicle can be disastrous, as they are not designed to cope with the power and design of performance cars. Before you purchase tyres for your vehicle, consult a tyre specialist to determine which ones are best for you. Whether you buy brand new, big-name tyres or tyres from a budget selection, it is vital that you choose the correct ones.
