Why it is important to check your tyres regularly
July 1, 2014

Your tyres are the only part of your vehicle in contact with the road surface, which means they play a vital role in keeping you safe. Your acceleration, braking, steering and cornering all rely on your four tyres relatively small contact area with the road surface so their correct selection, care and maintenance is essential.

It is estimated that over 1200 road casualties are caused on UK roads by an accident where illegal, defective or under-inflated tyres are a contributory factor. This is why it is crucial to always make sure your tyres are in a safe and legal condition.

It only takes a few moments to check three key areas which could have an enormous impact on your safety on the roads. Your tyre pressure, tread depth and general condition should be checked regularly, at least once a month and especially before a long journey.

Uneven tyre tread wear
May 28, 2014

Here at etyres Epsom we often see tyres that need replacing before they have reached their lifespan as a result of uneven tread wear. Below we have listed the most common causes of uneven tread wear and how to check your tyres for these factors to ensure you get the most out of your tyres.

Tyre pressure: Having under or over-inflated tyres can cause rapid wear. If you spot wear along the edges of the tread it is likely caused by under-inflating your tyres, Wear along the centre of the tread can be caused by over-inflating your tyres. It is important that your tyres are inflated to the pressure (PSI) settings specified in your vehicle handbook. We would advise all drivers to check their tyre pressure once a month and before long journeys.

Brakes and shock absorbers: Faulty brakes and shock absorbers can cause your tyres to wear prematurely and leaving bald or flat areas on the tyre tread

Misalignment of the wheels: Incorrect wheel alignment is also known as your tracking being out. If you notice wear on the inner or outer edges of your front tyres this could be the cause. Wheel misalignment can be caused by knocking your tyre on stationary objects such as kerbs or hitting potholes at an awkward angle.

If you spot any uneven wear on your tyres it is important to get them checked out and replaced as soon as possible. To buy your new tyres on the phone call us on 0203 292 0230 or you can buy your new tyres using the search tool on the left.
