The risks of driving on worn tires
The only items that bind your car with the road you’re driving on are used tyres. They need to deal with all the power from the engine, the tension of rough and cumbersome roads and various weather elements that are thrown at them every time you drive. It’s therefore fair for them to be in good condition to provide good results.
Unfortunately, many motorists don't notice if long-run tyres are in decent condition, let alone optimally working to pass legal guidelines. Did you know that a tyre will loose grip long before it wears out entirely. Tests have shown that they give up significant traction even when a tyre is worn do wn to its midway point.
Latest tests show that as many as 50% of the cars tested have atleast a thread pipe half or more worn out and at least 10% have an entirely bald tyre tread.
On wet roads such tyres can be very risky, provided that the grooves are not deep enough, as the tyre passes over them, they cannot channel enough water out from beneath them. The effect is a hydroplaning process where the tread of the tyre really beins to flow through the water on the surface of the lane. This results in the driver loosing control over the steering of the vehicle.
When driving on slushy, snowy roads, similar consequences can occur. Luckily, West Auckland does not experience snowfall, but with our wet weather, caution is still required.
How To Check If A Tyre Is Bald?
The width of the tread is measured in 1/32inch intervals. The tread depth is 10/32 on a new tyre. Legal standards say that they are at least 1.5mm thick. That means that the minimum tread depth in New Zealand is at least 1.5mm all around the tyre.
Tips On Driving With Bald Tyres
Because your car’s stopping distance with worn tyres will be longer, make sure you leave the forward car more than enough space ahead. Continue to increate the distance the faster the road speeds are. A good tip is to make sure that you leave a gap of at least 3 seconds between you and the other car.
Wheel Alignment West Auckland
Why is a wheel alignment important?
A wheel alignment ensures that all your tyres are pointing in the same direction during travel.
Unaligned Tyres Can Cause:
Shorter Tyre Life
Higher Fuel Consumption
Increased Driver Fatigue
Whether you purchase new tyres or are worried your old ones need wheel balancing, our team is ready with the specialized gear to get your wheels rotating perfectly again. This involves placing the tyres on a balancing machine that measures the balance and provides us with the number of weights that need to be added. This enables the tyre to roll correctly and eliminates any speed wobbles and uneven tyre wear.
When Is Wheel Balancing Done?
If you notice that you car shakes at certain speeds, it’s a sign that the wheels need balancing. New tyres in West Auckland also get balanced. Puncture repairs can also unbalance a tyre due to the plug adding weight in a certain spot, so wheel balancing gets carried out as well.
Tyres West Auckland also does planned tyre roation schedules to ensure tyres wear evenly and you get the maximum life out of your investment. This involves removing all the wheels from the vehicle and placing them in different positions on the car. This is change the contact patch and wear out a different area on the tyre than before. Even wearing of the tyre helps prolong their life as one spot isn’t worn down whilst another still have plenty of tread left.
Nitrogen Tyre Inflation
If you want ultimate peace of mind motoring in West Auckland, you can opt to fill your tyres with nitrogen, rather than compressed air. Nitrogen leaks out of tyres atleast 3 to four time slower than compressed air. Thanks to this stability, nitrogen tyre filling can offer some distinct advantages.
Longer tyre life
Increase Fuel Economy
