If you have noticed that your car has not been driving as well as it once was, it might be time to take a look at your tyres and see if they could be the reason that your car is not performing as well as it once was. Obviously, your tyres are one of the most important parts on your vehicle, so if they are degraded, they will have a major impact on your driving.
Tyres and brakes are two car parts that go hand in hand to assure a safe driving experience. If you have noticed that your car is not stopping as quickly as it should be, you will want to first examine the condition of your tyres to make sure that your tread has not gone bald or has unusual wear and tear on them. Bald or worn tyres are not as effective at stopping, especially when it is raining or snowing. When you apply your brakes when it is raining and you lose control of your car, this is known as “hydroplaning.” While this can happen to any driver, it is more likely to happen to a motorist that is driving on worn tyres with little or no tread on them. If you are unsure whether your tyres meet safety standards, a professional at Mags and Tyres in Auckland will be happy to help you. If after examination it is determined that your tyres and tread are safe, it is a good idea to have your brakes looked at by an auto repair specialist at the location you are at. He or she will be able to check your brake system for faults and needed repairs. If any repairs are needed, they can give you a no obligation quote on the cost of repairs.
Mileage is another aspect of the driving experience that can be affected by tyres that are not being properly maintained. Tyres that are overinflated or underinflated can result in lower mileage ratings, so it is always a smart idea to assure that your tyres are inflated to the PSI recommended by the manufacturer. Worn and uneven tyres can also affect the total mileage that your car gets. As part of a standard maintenance routine, it is a good idea to have your tyres rotated after a set amount of miles. By doing this, you are helping to assure that all of your tyres get an equal amount of wear and tear. This done regularly helps extend the life of your tyre set.
Unfortunately for motorists, sometimes there is no way of getting around replacing your tyres. On a positive note, when you replace two or four of your tyres with new ones, your tyres qualify for a limited warranty. New tyres make a major difference in the way that your car drives and can also help your car look better, even if you drive an older car. Your new tyres should last for a long time after you replace them, especially if you take care and rotate them regularly.
