Why tyres are important
Tyres are extremely important, since they are the only point of contact between the vehicle and the road. The contact surface between a tyre and the road is an area about the size of a postcard. So it is important it is always in perfect condition. You can find the assessment you need at any First Stop centre from the best specialists, in order to change the tyres. The tyres are the most important part of the vehicle when you are driving as they make the car ride comfortable and help when you need to brake.
How to choose best tyre?
The choice of the right tyre depends on the type of vehicle, driving style, place and weather.
The First Stop network provides all the details, but it is advisable to bear in mind the following recommendations before changing tyres:
When to change the tyres?
Four small strips of rubber, each the size of a postcard, is all that lies between you and potentially life-threatening situations on the road. So it is important to take great care of the tyres. They must be correctly inflated and replaced when they are worn or damaged. There is a 'wear bar' on each of these four strips ofrubber around the tyre and when this strip appears level with the tread your tyres need replacing.
Tyres are essential to ensure road safety. All tyres age and wear out, but proper use will extend their life. With correct maintenance and suitable driving style to match the conditions, they will carry you further and need changing less often.
