Tyre Care and Safety

Tyres may not be the first thing you consider when it comes to vehicle safety, but tyres are your vehicle’s only link with the road. In fact, your safety (and that of your passengers) actually relies on an area of contact between the tyre and the road surface, which is no bigger than the palm of your hand.

In addition to grip, tyres also support the weight of the vehicle and provide drive and directional control.

The following checklist outlines a few simple procedures, which if carried out regularly will ensure your tyres remain safe and you get value for money in terms of performance and service life.

Each procedure is then explained in more detail throughout this guide to help you look after your tyres correctly.

After all, if you look after your tyres, they will look after you!
