Simple Tyre Care Tips For a Safe Journey
Updated: Aug 21
Maintaining your car has never been an easy task. Checking the engine of your vehicle, looking after the brake plates, sending car for a car wash all these tedious tasks help you achieve a smooth driving experience at the end of the day. At times you while looking out for above mentioned components of the car you might ignore other very significant parts to be checked upon too, like the tyres of your car. If you are living in Dundee unexpected rain and wet weather might cause your tyres quality to suffer. To avoid such damage this article states some important checks you can carry out to help make your tyres fit to drive. Properly cover when parked You should know that it's not only when you drive the tyres quality is affected but also the weather condition affecting your parked tyres. If you have been parking your car in an area without a proper shed, then in case it rains , continuous dripping of the water can cause your tyres to get greasy thus affecting the tyre tread depth that is used to protect the rubber from external damage. Similarly if you have parked your vehicle at a place with extreme sun exposure, prolonged heat can cause the tyre to get rough quickly hence impacting the quality of it again. So it is recommended to always find a spot where there is a shed for the car to be parked or if you don't find that too , you can always cover your tyres with plastic wrap or old gardening cloths. Check the tyre pressure levels If you really want a smooth and peaceful long drive with your family or partner. Before you take your car out you should always check tyre pressure levels using a pressure gauge. This will not only save your time but also help you achieve a fuel efficient drive. By doing a regular pressure monitoring before taking your car out for a spin you can also save yourself from an unexpected tyre puncture or in case if your tyres are over inflated , you might experience a tyre burst if contacted with any pot hole or road bumps. It is best advised to find a new tyre replacement if your current tyres are depreciated. Local garages can help and let’s say if you are in a local area like Dundee (Scotland), you can book your tyres in Dundee at Fife Autocentre. Wash up your tyres It is advisable to wash your tyres once daily so that excessive dirt and sharp tiny particles caught up from rugged roads are washed away. This will also help cool down the temperature of heated up tyres that are caused due to increased road friction. Further if you use antibacterial detergents to wash up your tyres , harmful viruses and pollutants would also be removed which in case might have caused damage to the tyres.
