The Mercedes of tyres.

An essential part of looking after your tyres is examining them regularly, removing stones and other objects embedded in the tread. Also look for lumps or bulges in the tyre. Should you find any, get them inspected by a tyre specialist, as this could indicate internal damage. Always wipe away oil or grease with a suitable diluted detergent.

Maintaining the correct tyre pressure is essential for the safety and longevity of your tyres. Make sure to check the tyre pressures monthly and before any long trip, not forgetting about the spare.

A key inspection is to regularly check your tread depth. Ensure your tyres meet the legal requirements of a minimum 1 millimetre of tread in a continuous band throughout the central three-quarters of the tread width and round the entire circumference of the tyre.
