Why Is It So Important to Break in Your Tyres?

Get Rid of The Lubricant That Coats New Tyres

When Tyres are manufactured, a lubricant is used to prevent them from getting stuck to the moulds. This coating of lubricant can make new Tyres slippery. Ensuring you completely wear off this coating of lubricant will give you the best traction, allowing the Tyres to have proper contact with the road. This is one of the main reasons why Tyre Specialists recommend you to break in your Tyres.

Give Your Tyres A Better ‘Fit’

You know how when you wear a new pair of running shoes, they tend to be stiff and unyielding? But with regular use, the shoes become more comfortable and moulds to fit your feet perfectly. The same is true for Tyres as well. New Tyres need to be broken in to allow the materials to become more malleable and start working better together with the car.

How to Break in Your New Tyres?

So, how does one go about breaking in new Tyres? Well, the best way to go about breaking in new Tyres is to take it easy on them for the first 500 to 600 kilometres or so. This is enough time for the lubricant to wear off and for the tyres to ‘settle in’ and perform better. Refrain from speeding or braking suddenly for that time period. It is also advisable to practice caution in wet weather conditions when driving with a new set of wheels.
