How to increase tyre service life
A tyre’s maximum service life is six years – that’s assuming that they’re not damaged, the tread hasn’t been worn down earlier. The DOT number on your tyres will provide information about their age. Here are a few tips for a long tyre service life.
Do not hit the kerb when parking: It may damage the rubber outer layer and the inner structure of your tyres.
Correct air pressure:
Check your tyre pressure on a regular basis and increase it if you are driving with a heavy load. But be careful: Too high a pressure can also be damaging.
Measure the tread depth on a regular basis and check your tyres for damages and deformations.
Have them balanced:
This increases their service life and also protects the wheel bearing, steering system and suspension.
Keep things even:
Your tyres will only exhibit even wear if the axle geometry is right. Are your tyres wearing at a different rate? Have the tyre tracking correctly realigned.
Keep it clean:
Protect your tyres before they come into contact with oil, grease and fuel.
