It will help me save
- Checking tyre air pressure, and regular tyre maintenance such as rotation, alignment and inspections can help you to save money.
It can extend the life of your tyres so you don’t have to buy as often
Simple things like checking your tyre pressure to make sure that they are properly inflated can make a real difference in how long your tyres last. Under- or over-inflated tyres don’t wear evenly and won’t last as long.
For example, a tyre that is consistently 20% under- inflated can last 20% less.
This means that a tyre that should normally last 40,000 km would be worn out by 32,000 km.
Also, since the front and rear axles and right and left sides of your car wear down your tyres differently, rotating your tyres regularly between the different positions will ensure that they wear evenly and last longer.
It can save you money on fuel
- Under-inflated tyres are one of the biggest causes of using excess fuel.
- Under-inflated tyres have higher rolling resistance, which means that it takes more effort from the engine to move your vehicle.
