Better Driving Can Prolong Your Tyres

 

Tyres can be costly, especially if your vehicle needs special ones, or extra-large tyres, and it isn’t just the cost of the actual tyres – the cost of the labor to replace them can be high too.

However, there are some simple ways to change your driving routine and habits that can help to prolong the life of your tires, and save you time and money by not having to change them as often as you currently do.

How to Reduce Vehicle Wear

The tyres on your car or truck have a recommended air pressure, and keeping them inflated to the right pressure regularly and consistently is one of the simplest ways to get more life from your tyres. The tyre pressure is indicated in your vehicle somewhere, or a qualified mechanic can help you to determine it.

Check you tyres regularly and consistently to get more life.
  • Ideally you should check the tyre pressure on your car about once a week, as the pressure can change due to weather conditions and other factors.

If your car tends to pull either to the left or the right when you are driving it, it may mean that the tires are out of alignment, and this can also cause the tires to wear out faster than they may otherwise do. And you may find that your car just doesn’t drive as smoothly as it should if your tyres are out of alignment.

  • Ideally, check your car’s alignment about once every two months or so, and whenever you have a new tyre or tyres put on; this can help to keep everything perfectly aligned.

Your tyres will also wear out more quickly and you will need to replace them sooner if you aren’t practicing good driving habits consistently. Coming to a sudden stop at lights or a stop sign, and accelerating quickly away from being stationary can increase the wear on your tyres, and you may need to replace them more often.

  • The rubber is also more likely to come off your tyres if you turn a corner too quickly; you should always slow down before you turn a corner, and of course this also makes for safer driving as well.

It isn’t cheap having to replace the tyres on your car, and it should be something that you have to do as infrequently as possible. Practicing the driving tips above can help to prolong the life of your tyres, and can save you money at the same time.
