Tyres are the only part of your vehicle which is in continuous contact with the road and your vehicle, thus making it more prone to wear and tear. It is very important to preserve their quality to protect you and your vehicle's performance. Here are a few maintenance tips to help you keep your tyres in shape.
Keep them clean-
The simplest thing you can do to extend the life of your vehicle's tyre is to keep it clean. This includes washing and polishing not only the body but also the tyres. For this you don't need any fancy cleaning kit. All you need is a bucket of soap water and a sponge.
Keep them properly inflated-
Properly inflated tyres are less prone to punctures, so it’s important to check the tyre's pressure regularly. You can also check your tyre or vehicle owner’s manual to comprehend what the best possible level is.
Consistently check them for wears and tears-
Never underestimate a small wear or tear on your tyres. As even a small object that is stuck in the treads can work their way deeper and puncture your tyres. Hence make sure to check the surface and sidewalls before driving off.
Don’t forget to rotate them
The front and back tyres of most vehicles wear distinctively. Commonly, the front tyres wear speedier than the back ones, so its imperative to rotate them to avoid uneven tread wear. Once you finish rotating, don’t forget to check the pressure of each tyre.
