Maintaining your tyres

Looking after your tyres

Your tyres 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 tyres:

Check your pressure

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

Rotate your tyres

Ensure that your tyres wear evenly by having your tyres 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 tyres

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