TECH TIPS

THIS CAN SAVE YOU MONEY!

Simple things like checking your tyres’ 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. 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 they wear evenly and last longer. We recommend that you rotate your tyres every 10,000 Km.

YOU 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 it takes more effort from the engine to move your vehicle.
  • ​It ensures your safety.
  • Your tyres are the only point of contact that your vehicle has with the road – they need to be in good working condition at all times to ensure your safety.

TO AVOID ANY PROBLEMS, FOLLOW THESE IMPORTANT CARE TIPS:

INSPECT YOUR TYRE :

You may not always notice if one of your tyres has been damaged. Inspect your tyres regularly for wear and any damage to avoid any sudden problems. Have a Super Tyres professional inspect your tyres every six months.

​CHECK THE AIR PRESSURE:

Driving with incorrect tyre pressures can affect a vehicle’s handling and braking, particularly in wet conditions, and can seriously compromise your safety. Driving on severely under-inflated tyres can cause heat build-up and eventually a premature failure. Check your tyre pressure monthly and before every long trip.

​RESPECT THE LOAD CAPACITY:

Do not exceed the load capacity relative to the tyre’s load index. Tyres loaded beyond their maximum loads can build up excessive heat that may result in sudden tyre destruction.

​DRIVING AT HIGH SPEED* CAN DAMAGE YOUR TYRE:

At greater speeds, tyres have greater a chance of being damaged by road hazards or heat build-up. High speeds can also contribute to a rapid air loss or even a sudden tire explosion, which can cause the loss of control of the vehicle.

USE YOUR SPARE TYRE!

If you see any damage to a tyre or wheel, replace it with your spare tyre and have your tyre checked by a professional!

*Exceeding the safe, legal speed limit is neither recommended nor endorsed.

Safe Driving folks!
