Tyres at Newton Honda Limited, Croydon

Car tyres are an often underestimated and overlooked component of a vehicle, yet they play a pivotal role in determining your driving experience, safety on the road, and even fuel efficiency.

Maintaining your car tyres is essential for their longevity and performance. Here are some key aspects of tyre care:

  • Regular Inspections: Periodically inspect your tyres for signs of wear, damage, or punctures. Address any issues promptly to prevent further damage.
  • Proper Inflation: Maintain the recommended tyre pressure levels specified in your vehicle's manual. Underinflated or overinflated tyres can negatively impact performance and safety. 
  • Rotation and Alignment: Regularly rotate your tyres to ensure even wear. Proper wheel alignment prevents uneven tyre wear and helps maintain stability and control.
  • Tread Depth: Check the tread depth of your tyres. In many regions, there are legal requirements for minimum tread depth. Inadequate tread depth reduces grip and can lead to hydroplaning in wet conditions.
  • Seasonal Considerations: Consider switching to seasonal tyres (summer, winter, or all-season) based on the climate in your region. Seasonal tyres are designed to perform optimally in specific weather conditions.
