Looking for Tyre Specials? Some Important Points to Consider When Buying New Tyres

Looking after car tyres is relatively simple and easy, and can ultimately help you save a lot of money. Well-selected and -maintained tyres contribute greatly to you and your passengers’ comfort and safety, and also boost fuel economy while improving handling and the ability to stop the car safely in all road conditions.

Your tyres are vital components of your car, because they have to support the full weight of the car while also providing the only connection to the road, allowing lateral control and traction for forward motion. Therefore, choosing the best tyres for your car is a crucial decision that has an impact on every aspect of your journey. Whether you opt for Dunlop tyres or any other major brand like Continental or Michelin, there are a few things to consider when shopping around for specials.

You will be able to find all the information regarding the manufacturer’s recommendation about the tyre size and type best suited to your vehicle in the car’s owner’s manual. Even though it may be cheaper to replace only the tyres that are most worn, it is advisable to buy a full set of new tyres, just because the car’s suspension, brakes, and technology like dynamic stability control, are designed to work best with a matching set of tyres.

The Importance of Aligning and Balancing Your Tyres

If you do not align your wheels after replacing your tyres, the tyres can wear down far too quickly and unevenly. It is always advisable to perform a wheel balancing and alignment every 10 000 km to 15 000 km, because this ensures optimal handling and tyre life. Should your car pull to one side of the road while driving, your alignment may need attention, and if there is a shudder from the steering wheel, it may be a balancing problem.

When it comes to maintaining your new tyres, their pressures should be checked regularly as this also helps with improving fuel economy, and can help boost the tyres’ longevity. To determine the optimal inflation pressure, refer to your car’s owner manual. These are only a few ways to get the most out of your vehicle’s tyres.
