How often should I check my Tyres?
Tyres play an important role in your vehicle's road-handling performance. The monitoring of tyre pressure, tread depth and performing regular tyre rotations are all safety issues.
Tyre pressure should be checked at least once a month. This is roughly the amount of time before you tyres lose inflation. That adds up very quickly and remember, temperature can have a major impact. A drop of 5°C can also cause a loss in inflation pressure. Monitoring tread depth will help ensure you're receiving the proper level of traction.
Tyres should be rotated every 5-10,000 kilometres to achieve the maximum life. The front tyres, especially on front drive cars, have to work harder than the rear tyres, providing steering, acceleration and the main braking traction.
