Check air pressures in all tyres regularly.
It is preferable that this check be made weekly, when tyres are cold, and using a gauge known to be accurate.
Ensure you have the correct tyre for your car.
You can check this by referring to the tyre placard fitted to the car which indicates the correct size, speed rating and load capacity, as well as recommended inflation pressures. The placard is fitted to all vehicles manufactured since 1973 and is usually contained in the glovebox, on the driver's door pillar or under the front bonnet.
Avoid hard braking and sudden acceleration.
Tyres may wear quickly if consistently subjected to hard braking or rapid acceleration. Adopting a conservative driving style will maximise tyre life.
Use care when parking to avoid tyre damage.
Many impact fractures occur in the sidewall area of the tyre rather than the tread.
Careful parking will reduce damage to tyre sidewalls that can occur through contact with kerbs.
Ensure that tyres have more than 1.6mm of tread.
Most new tyres have about 8-9 mm of tread pattern when manufactured but when the tread wears down to less that 1.6mm, the tyre may be unsafe to use in wet conditions and should be replaced as soon as possible. Tyres have indicators in their tread pattern which show as lines across the tread when reduced to 1.6mm.
