Car tyres can last anywhere from 2 to 10 years. How long your tyres last depends on the type of use you put them through. If you drive your vehicle on terrain that is gruelling, they may not last as long as you’d like them to. On average, a car tyre will last between 10,000 and 50,000 kilometres. When you have travelled 50,000 kilometres or 10 years – whichever is earlier – you must change your tyres or you’re just pushing your luck.
A lot of people check their petrol, oil and water gauges but forget to check their tyres. It’s understandable given Tyres aren’t as visible as your dashboard is. Yet, it’s the tyres that drive the comfort and safety of your ride. With wear and tear, the quality of your tyre starts to deteriorate. The rubber starts to lose its flexibility. This makes it easier for you to lose control over your car’s steering. What you could compromise, as a result, is your safety.
How well your car handles depends on your Tyres – the grooves etched deep into them. The grooves on your tyre are its pattern. The tread is the raised section that touches the ground when you drive. When your tyres age, what wears out is the tread. When this happens, your car could easily skid. Especially if you are travelling on a wet road, on sand or gravel.
A simple test will show. Take a 20-cent coin and place it in your tyres groove. If the tread isn’t touching the platypus’ bill, the groove is too shallow and it’s time to replace your car’s tyres with a new set.
The place you have to look is privately-owned small or medium-sized car tyre retailers. Because they are private businesses, not car tyre warehouses, you will find they always give you better products and service. These tyre houses stock major car tyre brands like Pirelli, Bridgestone and Michelin. But they also stock Cheaper Car Tyres that are also extremely well priced. Brands like Silverstone, Toyo, Ovation, Maxxis, Zeta, Kendlake and others imported from Malaysia and other parts of Asia.
