Your tyres are often called the most important safety element on your vehicle. Interestingly, they are the only part of your vehicle that actually touches the road. They are the ways in which you and your vehicle interact with the road. This means that you need to take considerable care of your tyres. If something is wrong with them, it needs to be addressed quickly. However, you might not recognise all of the signs of a problem with your tyres.
Signs of a Problem
Some problems with Leeds tyres are easy to spot. If the tyre is constantly running out of air pressure, you need to have it patched or replaced.
- The treads on your tyres channel water away from the bottom of the tyre. So, you need to make sure that there are deep channels between the treads of your tyres; if they are bald, you need to have them replaced.
- If you see any bulges on the sides of your tyres, the rubber on the tyre walls is beginning to thin and will likely blow out soon.
Repair or Replace?
Only a professional will be able to tell you if you need to repair or replace your tyres. Repairing tyres usually means a patch or a plug to fill a puncture. If you need to replace them, this means that the puncture is either in the sidewall or the thread has gotten to a point that it cannot be repaired. It’s possible to repair bald tyres but it is probably easier just to replace them.
