The Importance of Tyres on Your Car

Car owners understand how important it is to look after and maintain their vehicle, especially if they want it to have a long life. That said, much of the attention tends to go under the hood, with very few driver’s paying attention to the 4 tyres that the vehicle rides on. It’s only when they get a flat that it becomes clear just how big a role tyres play in getting you where you need to go. It’s always a good idea to pay attention to your tyres, and when it does come time to buy replacements or do repairs that you do so from an honest and respected automotive shop.

Let’s look at the important role that tyres play in the smooth running of your vehicle, as well as what you should be looking out for:

Check for External Damage – Even when you drive on roads that are well maintained, there is always the possibility that you may run over some type of debris. Little stones, nails, and other objects that don’t belong on the road can make their way there, and they can wreak havoc on your tyres. Regularly check your tyres for nicks, cuts, and other small signs of damage that could quickly turn into something big. If you are not sure what you are looking for, ask the experts at Enhanced Motors to take a look.

Check Tyre Pressure – If your car suddenly sound louder than usual on the road or is guzzling more fuel than normal, you may want to check that your tyres have the correct pressure. You can usually find the recommended tyre pressure by checking a placard found on the door jamb in your car. The owner’s manual of the car should also have that information contained within its pages. Again, if you are unsure how to check the tyre pressure to ensure that it is correct, take your vehicle in to Enhanced Motors. They can get your tyres where they need to be and get your vehicle running smoothly again.

Check Tyre Tread – The tread on your tyres is not just there for decoration and is in fact used to direct away water and ensure that a solid grip on the road is maintained at all times. When your tyres start to wear out, the tread is not able to do the job it is made to do, which makes life on the road potentially more dangerous for you and other vehicles out there. Your tyres have a small triangle on the wall that indicate the height the tread should be. If it falls below that triangle, it’s time to change those tyres.

When the time comes to repair or replace the tyres on your car, dealing with a reputable automotive shop such as Enhanced Motors should be considered a must. Dealing with a trusted seller means getting top class service at the very best price. You can also get back on the road with peace of mind knowing that your new or old tyres have been properly installed/fixed.
