Considering how important tyres are for a smooth and safe drive, it is surprising just how quick and it is easy to care for your tyres. By following our tyre care tips, and conducting simple regular checks, you will not just save time and money, but more importantly, stay safe on the road.
So how much pressure should you put in your tyre?
The amount of pressure a tyre requires depends on its type and the vehicle. You can find out the optimum air pressure either printed on the side of the door, the sidewall of the tires, or in your owner’s manual. Remember that for desert drives you need to deflate your tyres to max 15 pressure, but ensure to inflate them straight after your drive to not damage the tyres.
Nitrogen over regular air
We always recommend to inflating your tyres with Nitrogen, especially in a hot climate like the UAE. Nitrogen doesn’t evaporate like regular air in the heat, ensure increased fuel economy, longer tire life, and improved handling.
For your vehicle to steer, brake and stay on the road safely it is vital your tyres are kept in good condition and checked regularly.
The new tyre tread depth is 8-6mm and can go down to 3mm. Legally you are allowed to go down to 1.6 mm but this does greatly affect your stopping distance.
Here are 5 ways you can avoid fast tyre wear:
– Maintain correct tyre pressure always
– Avoid harsh braking
– Avoid hard cornering
– Avoid aggressive acceleration
– Do not use excessive speed
