Maintaining your tires

Looking after your tires

Your tires will perform well until the day you replace them, if you look after them properly.

However, if your vehicle doesn’t handle or brake how it used to, or if there’s excessive vibration, it could be time for a trip to your dealer. Rotation, balancing or alignment might help, or it might be time to look at buying a new set.

Here’s some advice on the best ways to look after your tires:

Check your pressure

Get into the habit of checking your tire pressure regularly. Here’s why it’s important.

Rotate your tires

Ensure that your tires wear evenly by having your tires rotated every 10,000 to 12,000km, or every six months. Here’s how you do it.

Check your treads

Look at your tread wear patterns regularly. Here’s how you do it.

Replace your tires

Regularly checking and maintaining your tires will prolong their life, but all tires will wear out eventually. Here’s when to replace them.
