Tyres


Tyres Holmer Green

As the only point of contact with the road, your tyres need to carry the weight of the vehicle and passengers, absorb the impact of any bumps in the road and respond to braking, accelerating and steering. It is therefore vital to fit and maintain quality tyres for your safety and comfort and the car’s performance. Checking and where needed adjusting your tyre pressure every month will help to increase the life of your tyres and the overall performance and fuel economy of your car.

Who knows what weather Britain may face each winter, but if required we can also supply winter tyres to aid grip in bad weather.

 

Advantages of New Tyres

Investing in new Tyres for your vehicle can provide numerous advantages, ensuring a safer and more comfortable driving experience. Here are some key benefits of equipping your vehicle with new Tyres:

  • Enhanced Safety: New Tyres offer better grip and traction, especially in adverse weather conditions such as rain, snow, or ice. The deeper tread patterns and improved rubber compounds allow for better control and shorter braking distances, reducing the risk of accidents.
  • Improved Fuel Efficiency: Worn-out Tyres with inadequate tread depth can significantly increase rolling resistance, which leads to decreased fuel efficiency. New Tyres with optimal tread patterns and rubber compounds can reduce rolling resistance, thereby improving fuel economy.
  • Better Handling and Performance: As Tyres age, their performance deteriorates, leading to reduced responsiveness and handling capabilities. New Tyres provide superior handling, precision, and stability, ensuring a smooth and comfortable ride even at high speeds.
  • Reduced Road Noise: As Tyres wear down, they tend to produce more noise, resulting in a louder and less enjoyable driving experience. New Tyres are designed with advanced noise reduction features, providing a quieter ride and enhancing overall comfort.

Seasonal Tyres

In regions with varying weather conditions, it is essential to consider using seasonal Tyres to optimize performance and safety. Seasonal Tyres are designed specifically for particular weather conditions and temperatures:

  • Summer Tyres: Summer Tyres are ideal for warm and dry conditions. They offer excellent grip on both dry and wet roads, ensuring enhanced handling and shorter braking distances. These Tyres are not suitable for snowy or icy conditions.
  • Winter Tyres: Winter Tyres are specifically engineered for cold weather, including snowy and icy conditions. They have a unique tread pattern and rubber compound that stays pliable in low temperatures, providing superior traction and control.
  • All-Season Tyres: All-season Tyres are a versatile option, designed to provide adequate performance in both dry and wet conditions throughout the year. While they offer a balanced performance, they may not provide the same level of grip and traction as specialized summer or winter Tyres.

Checking and Changing Tyres

Regularly inspecting and maintaining your Tyres is crucial for optimal performance and safety. Here’s a general guideline on how often you should check and change your Tyres:

  • Tyre Pressure: Check your Tyre pressure at least once a month, as improperly inflated Tyres can affect fuel efficiency, handling, and tread wear. Refer to your vehicle’s manual or the recommended pressure indicated on the Tyre side.
  • Tread Depth: Inspect the Tyre tread depth periodically. The legal minimum tread depth varies by region, but generally, it is recommended to replace Tyres when the tread depth reaches 2/32 of an inch (1.6 mm) or lower. To measure tread depth accurately, use a tread depth gauge or the “penny test.”
  • Tyre Rotation: Regularly rotate your Tyres to ensure even wear. As a general rule of thumb, perform a Tyre rotation every 5,000 to 8,000 miles (8,000 to 13,000 kilometers) or as recommended by your vehicle manufacturer.
  • Tyre Age: Even if your Tyres have sufficient tread depth, they can still deteriorate over time due to aging. As a guideline, consider replacing Tyres that are more than six years old, regardless of their apparent condition.

Remember, these guidelines can vary depending on your driving habits, local climate, and Tyre manufacturer recommendations. It’s always advisable to consult with a Tyre professional for specific advice based on your unique circumstances.
