Because tyres have such a significant impact on driving safety, it’s important to know when to replace them. Two of the most important considerations are tread depth and tyre age. Tread depth, how much tread your tyres have, directly impacts your vehicle’s ability to stop. When it comes to replacing your tyres, you should also consider the age of your tyres.
Good car maintenance can help to reduce the likelihood of getting a flat tyre. Keep your tyres properly inflated and have them periodically rotated to equalize wear and extend tyre life. Replace your tyres promptly when they become worn; the less tread a tire has the more vulnerable it is to suffering a puncture.
