4 small patches of rubber connect you and your family with the road. Low thread or uneven tyre wear can compromise braking distance and handling and might cause accident which could have been prevented otherwise.
Road safety tips as per RMS NSW:
- Inspect for uneven bulges, cuts and cracks. Remove any objects lodged in the tread and check for gouges or punctures.
- Tyres should be replaced before the tread depth falls to 1.5mm. Most tyres have tread depth indicators as a guide
- A tyre that loses too much pressure in a short time may have a slow leak and should be repaired or replaced
- Unusual vibrations or uneven wear (bald) spots on tyres may suggest that a wheel balance is needed to avoid excessive loading to the vehicle’s wheel bearings and suspension
- Do not attempt to change a flat tyre unless it is safe to do so. If possible, drive on a flat tyre to a safe spot away from traffic.
- Keep tyres (including the spare) inflated to the recommended levels. Too much or too little air causes uneven wear, reduces handling and grip, and shortens the life of the tyres.
Wheel alignments correct the angle of wheels to the axle and steering components to avoid steering problems and uneven tyre wear. Wheels should be aligned about once a year, or sooner if you can feel vibrations through the steering wheel.
It is important to know the age of tyres, as rubber materials deteriorate over time, the tyres get hard which reduces the grip with the road and may affect the vehicle handling when braking, increasing the risk of accidents
Most tyres have date markings on the side of the tyre. We recommend replacing tyres older than five years, even with little wear
Well maintained tyres are a vital part of vehicle safety. Let our professional team check the condition of your tyres and supply and fit new tyres if necessary.
Your safety is our priority.
The Puncture Free Tyre
ASV P-free™ is an Australian brand. The tyres are designed to seal punctures in the most extreme temperatures, from sub-zero mornings to the hottest outback days.
After a puncture, the tyre remains inflated without dropping in pressure, meaning there is no impact to driving or driver’s safety, for the lifetime of the tyre.
