Looking After Your Tyres

Looking after your tyres is essential to maximising their road safety and performance as well as extending their lifespan. As a driver, it is crucial that you maintain your tyres considering that they are the part of your vehicle which connects you to the road.

It is a driver’s responsibility to ensure that their tyres are up to the legal standards. Regulations set in place by the government place an even greater focus on the need to regularly check your tyres and at Best Buy Tyres we recommend carrying out checks every two weeks.

Age isn’t the only factor when it comes to worn out tyres, many other things can have a negative effect on the life of your tyres. Braking, wrongly-inflated tyres and even debris on the road can decrease your tyre life, so it is important that you frequently check them.

Simply checking your tyre pressure, tread depth and surface can go a long way when it comes to lengthening tyre life and lowering your fuel consumption. If you are unsure where to start when it comes to checking your tyres, take a look at our tips:
