Reasons to change your tyres:

 

- If you get a puncture.

 

In certain situations, a tyre can be repaired.However, the repair must be preceded by a careful examination of all areas of the tyre, inside and out, by a trained specialist. The removal of the tyre from the wheel is essential because internal damage is not visible while the tyre is fitted. A tyre specialist should check your tyre after a puncture to decide whether it can be repaired.

- When your tyres worn down to the legal limit of wear.

Check your tyres regularly for tyre wear. In each of the main grooves of the tread you will find of the tread wear indicators. These indicators are small raised areas at the bottom of the grooves of the tread pattern. If the surface of the tread rubber is level with these raised areas, the tyre tread depth is most likely very close to the legal limit of 1.6 mm. Or below it! We strongly recommend that you consider changing your tyres before this limit is reached. They may no longer provide sufficient safety and you could be breaking the law.

Even if the remaining tread depth is greater than 1.6 mm, you should adapt your speed and driving style to the external conditions, particularly on wet roads.

- If your tyre shows signs of aging.

Tyres have no predictable life. Tyres age even when not used, or if only used occasionally.  There are many factors that will affect the life of the tyre such as temperature, maintenance, conditions of storage and use, load, speed, pressure as well as driving style. These will have a great impact on the length of service life you can expect from your tyres.

Excessive aging of tyres may lead to loss of grip.

After five years or more in service, your tyres should be thoroughly inspected at least once per year. If the need arises, follow the recommendations of the vehicle manufacturer regarding replacing the original equipment tyres. As a precaution, if the tyres have not been replaced 10 years from their date of manufacture (see how to read a tyre sidewall), we recommend replacing them with new tyres. Even if they appear to be in usable condition and have not worn down to the tread wear indicator.

- If your tyre is damaged.

Your tyre can be seriously damaged if it impacts any solid object on the road, like a kerb, pothole, or sharp object. Any visible perforation, cut or deformation must be checked thoroughly by a tyre professional. Only they can tell you whether the tyre can be repaired or has to be changed. Never use damaged tyres or tyres that have run flat or at very low pressures unless they have been thoroughly examined internally and externally by a tyre professional. Inspection by a professional is absolutely necessary because internal damage is not visible while the tyre is mounted; only then can a decision be made as to whether the tyre can be out back into service.

- If you identify abnormal wear.

Abnormal uneven tyre wear - in patches, in the centre, at the edges - may indicate a mechanical problem like improper wheel alignment , or a problem with wheel balance, suspension or transmission.  It could also be that you're driving with the wrong tyre pressure.

To prevent uneven wear, have your wheels aligned and balanced by a tyre specialist. This will also extend tread life and give you a smoother ride.

Common causes of abnormal tyre wear:

  • Wear on one shoulder: suspension misalignment.
  • Wear on both shoulders: under-inflated tyre.
  • Wear along the tyre's centre: over inflation.

- If they’re not suited to your vehicle.

For best all-around performance, the same type of tyre should be used in all four wheel positions. Tyres of different sizes, constructions, and stages of wear may affect vehicle handling and stability.

In addition, there may be specific recommendations by vehicle or tyre manufacturers which may apply to your vehicle. These should be followed, please check your vehicle handbook for details.
