Solar City Tyres takes pride in offering professional services and advice to assist you with choosing the right tyres for your vehicle. It is  important for you to know how to maintain your tyres to ensure their effectiveness and safety. Below are a few tips to help you ensure your tyres are well maintained.

Check the air pressure in all tyres regularly

Check your tyres weekly with an accurate gauge. Check all tyres, including your spare, when the tyres are cold.

Ensure you have the correct tyre for your car

Your car will come fitted with a tyre placard indicating the correct size, speed rating, load capacity and inflation pressures for your tyres. This placard is fitted to all cars manufactured after 1973 and is usually contained in the glovebox, on the driver’s door pillar or under the front bonnet. Refer to this placard when choosing and refilling your tyres.

Avoid mixing tyres

Varying construction styles between different brands of tyre mean that it is preferable to purchase all four tyres, and your spare, from the same brand. It can also be dangerous to mix tyres with different sizes or aspect ratios. Always consult a qualified tyre technician for advice when purchasing your tyres.

Avoid hard braking and sudden acceleration

Tyres may wear quickly if consistently subjected to hard braking or rapid acceleration.

Use care when parking to avoid tyre damage

Many impact fractures occur in the sidewall area of the tyre rather than the tread. Careful parking will reduce damage to tyre sidewalls that can occur through contact with kerbs.

Ensure that tyres have more than 1.6mm of tread

Most new tyres have about 8-9mm of tread pattern when manufactured. When the tread wears down to less than 1.6mm, the tyre may be unsafe to use in wet or dangerous conditions and should be replaced as soon as possible. Your tyres have indicators in their tread pattern which show as lines across the tread when reduced to 1.6mm.

Have your tyres fitted by a qualified tyre technician

Tyres should always be fitted by a qualified tyre technician who will ensure they are fitted to the wheel properly. Poorly fitted tyres can result in steering wheel or vehicle vibration, premature failure, poor handling and rapid tread wear.

Do not use sealants to repair punctures

After a puncture, tyres should be inspected internally to assess the full extent of the damage. Often damaged tyres are not fully inflated and so the vehicle should be driven at reduced speeds until the tyre can be changed or properly repaired.

Sealants should not be used as a temporary or preventative measures to combat punctures. Using a sealant on your tyre may invalidate its warranty.
