We know you take your on-road safety seriously. Don’t you? Safety comes, first and foremost, with tyres. It is they who carry you around safely. It is they who take the entire load of the vehicle.
And it is they who give you a bumpy ride if they are not in good health.
Look For Troubling Signs:
- See if their tread is wearing out unevenly.
- See if their sidewalls are losing resilience and strength. Or, they are thinning.
- See if their bead is unable to hold fast to the rim of the wheel.
- See if they are well past their mileage warranty.
- See if they are losing grip on the road.
- See if they are ageing even before reaching their mileage warranty.
All these are troubling signs. The tyres are not in good health. Their condition is no longer roadworthy.
- As a responsible owner, you look after them well.
- You regularly maintain air pressure at the recommended level.
- You inspect them for signs of wear and tear.
- You promptly get repair the hole punched in by a nail.
- You also regularly check the tread for thinning or uneven wear signs.
Yet a day comes when you have to retire them.
Find A Suitable Replacement For Them.
But tyres don’t come cheap. Also, they come in a wide range of brands, types and sizes, in different designs and makes. This is because they serve a variety of purposes.
There are winter tyres specially designed to withstand extreme cold and negotiate snow and ice. There are summer tyres to deal with hot and dry weather conditions. Finally, all-season tyres are designed to perform in all weather conditions, warm, cold and wet.
Choose a Brand Carefully:

You can have all this basic info by just visiting their website. Further, there are independent reviews of all tyre brands. They can also be handy when you weigh your options.
