When should I replace my tyres?
It's best to avoid having a puncture and suffering from a flat tyre whilst out on the road.
Carmen Autos offers tips and tell-tale sign to help get the best life out of your tyres and when to replace the.
The main reasons why tyres need to be replaced include:
- Worn, thin or uneven tyre tread
- Tyre age and rot
- Physical tyre damage
The most common need for tyre replacement is worn tread as tyres naturally wear down and will eventually need replacing.
If you are an occasional car user sometimes tyres can break down due to old age. A tell-tale sign of this is thin cracks in the sideway which appear when the rubber degrades.
Sidewall damage such as splits or foreign objects deem the tyre impossible to repair.
If you suffer a puncture in the central part of your tyre thread Carmen Autos can repair this and save you time and money.
How can I find my tyre size?
Finding your tyres size is simple once you learn how to read a tyre code.
Along the make and model of your tyre you will see numbers on the wall of your tyre such as: 195/65 R16 91W
Starting from the left here is what the numbers mean:
- 195 - Tyre width in mm
- 55 - Sidewall height or profile in mm
- R16 - Radial diameter or rim size
- 91W - Speed rating
Tyre Safety and the Law
Replacing worn tyres is not only important it is a legal requirement.
UK law states your vehicle must be fitted with the correct size tyre with a legal minimum tread depth of 1.6mm across the central 3/4 tread going in a complete circumference around your tyre.
It is extremely important you check this on a regular basis as you could be fined up to £2500 and recieve 3 penalty points per tyre if your tyres are illegal.
Wheel Alignment and Tyre Balancing
Your tyres need to spin in perfect balance. An unbalanced tyre will cause a slight wobble when driving or braking so it is important your tyres are balanced.
At Carmen Autos we perfectly align and balance your tyres when fitting by spinning the wheel with tyre and adding small weights to the rim to eliminate any road wobble.
Tyre Puncture Repair
Screws, nails, glass and hard thorns are among some of the common objects that can puncture your tyres.
If the puncture is in the central portion of your tyre we can repair this using a plug allowing you to avoid tyre replacement and continue to use your tyre for the rest of its life.
Tyre Valve Replacement
The tyre valve is a small stem on the outside of your tyre that allows the tyre to be filled with air.
Sometime valves can get damaged, become faulty and need replacing. Carmen Autos can quickly replace faulty valves at our garage.
