3 Top tips for minimizing Tyre tread wear

1. Regularly keep an eye on your Tyre pressures 
If your tyres are inflated at the correct level they’ll not only wear more evenly, they’ll be both safer and more fuel efficient too.

2. Make sure your wheels are aligned correctly
If your wheels are incorrectly aligned, your Tyre treads will wear unevenly. As a result you’ll have less tread and grip on one side of your Tyre.

3.Invest in premium tyres, rather than cheaper tyres 
Why spend a little more? Because cheaper tyres are typically made from inferior rubber compositions, compared to premium tyres. As a result, these cheaper tyres typically wear down faster than those from premium Tyre brands like Michelin, Bridgestone, Continental, Yokohama, etc.

Apart from these, adjusting your driving habits can help avoid tyre wear.
For instance, taking curves too fast can wear the edges of your front tyres. Hitting a pothole can create tyre leaks and wear, and even mess with your wheel alignment. Take care to avoid speeding over puddles that could be hiding deep potholes.

Tyre Rotation is vital to achieving even tread wear and long tread life. Rotation is necessary because of the uneven wear characteristics of each wheel position on the vehicle. Make it a habit to rotate your tyres each time you get an oil change, so as to keep your car running smoothly and help avoid big trouble down the road !
