Changing the Tire

Tyres & Alignment

Often car tyres need to be replaced before their specified life has been reached mainly because of rapid or uneven tread wear. The most common causes of avoidable tread wear are:

  • Under-Inflating - Causing rapid wear along the edges of the tread.

  • Over-Inflating - Causing rapid wear along the centre of the tread.

  • Faulty brakes or shock absorbers - Can cause flat spots around the tread of the tyre.

  • Incorrect wheel alignment (tracking) - can cause rapid wear along the inside or outside edges of the tyres. If you strike a kerb or hit a pot hole - the delicate settings of the steering geometry may become misaligned resulting in uneven wear.
