Tire Care Tips

At Danny Maharaj Tyre and Auto Enterprise Limited, we want our customers in San Fernando, Debe, Couva, and surrounding areas to remain on top of tyre performance and adhere to maintenance schedules outlined in their owner’s manual.

tyre Care Tips in San FernandoYour tyres contribute to vehicle performance. tyre maintenance can protect your investment by extending the life of your tyres. Checking tyre pressure, rotating your tyres, balancing your tyres, and choosing the right set of replacement tyres based on safety and handling will all contribute to consistent performance.

Use the following tips to help you stay on top of tyre maintenance:

  • Check tyre pressure to ensure proper inflation. Underinflation can lead to excess heat, uneven tyre wear, and decreased braking and handling capabilities, which may cause structural failures like blowouts and tread separation. Properly inflated tyres will maximize tread life, improve handling, and increase fuel efficiency and overall driver safety.
  • Follow proper tyre rotation schedules. Recommended rotation patterns for your vehicle can be found in your owner’s manual. Routine tyre rotations equalize and enhance front-to-rear and side-to-side tyre wear. Remember: tyre rotation will not prevent or circumvent wear issues caused by worn mechanical components.
  • Balance tyres as necessary. Out-of-balance tyres may be detected in bumps that become more noticeable at higher speeds. Balancing tyres is necessary during initial installation and during a remount.
  • Install new tyres in sets or pairs. The addition of one new tyre to the rotation cycle can cause instability and create vehicle handling issues. When new tyres are needed, two new tyres should be installed on the rear of a vehicle, and the partially worn tyres should be moved to the front of the vehicle.
  • When the time comes to store your tyres for next season, consider a dark place away from direct sunlight with low humidity. tyres should be stored away from solvents, grease, oil, or any ozone-producing electrical equipment, which have deteriorating effects on tyres.
  • Be mindful of abnormal tyre wear or damage to your tyres. Watch for signs of punctures, embedded objects, cracks, and bulges.
  • Always keep a spare tyre, and make sure it’s properly inflated and ready for use. You never know when you’re going to need it.

Take these tips into consideration when servicing your tyres. The Rubber Manufacturer's Association (RMA) recommends taking five minutes each month to check your tyres. Other mechanical issues may contribute to uneven tyre wear, and need correction in order to maximize tyre life and vehicle performance.

By taking proper care of your tyres, you can remain safe during all types of travel, experience the benefits of better fuel economy, and extend tyre life, which will positively impact the environment.
