Posted On May 23rd, 2017

Taking care of your car tyres and maintaining those means you can extend the life of your tyres which would enable you to save money from buying new ones. As your tyres have direct contact with the road, maintaining them ensures your safety.Wholesale Tyres Direct is a leading tyres sale and service provider in Sydney.

We not only provide you the tips to maintain your tyres but also sell high quality brand tyres in wholesale prices when you need to replace them. We will look at a few tips to take care of your tyres to increase their longevity.

Checking the air pressure
Regularly checking the air pressure is essential as under-inflated or over-inflated tires can wear down faster than expected, have reduced grip and can consume more fuel. Under inflation also results in tyre stress, irregular wear, loss of control and accidents. The recommended pressure can be checked from the vehicle’s manual or you can visit Wholesale Tyres Direct to seek the expert advice of our team.

Tyre rotation
During rotation, each tyre and wheel is removed from your vehicle and moved to a different position to ensure that all tyres wear evenly and last longer. Tyres should be rotated according to the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation. Unless your vehicle’s manual has a specific recommendation, tyres should be rotated after approximately every 5,000-8,000 miles.

Wheel alignment
It is important to keep a check on the alignment in order to reduce wear on your tires, help increase their life and performance and improve fuel economy. This will also improve handling and driving safety by reducing steering problems. An unbalanced tyre and wheel assembly may result in irregular wear or vibration.Wholesale Tyres Direct recommends getting your wheel alignment checked regularly from us in order to prevent premature damage to the tyres and suspension components.

Tyre balancing
A wheel is out of balance when one area is heavier or lighter than the rest. This results in wobbling, which can decrease tread life, increase vibration, and cause stress on your vehicle.

Storage of tyres
If you switch between sets of tyres, it is important to have them in a proper storage facility to ensure that your tyres appearance and performance are maintained. Keep your tyres in a cool and dry place to maintain the performance. Ensure that the surfaces on which tyres are stored are clean and free from grease, gasoline, solvents, oils or other substances that could deteriorate the rubber.
