The keys to smooth driving

You both expect and demand a lot from your tyres…and why not? In terms of safety, little on a car is more important than a well-built, high-performance tyre; yet you also want affordability and a lengthy tyre lifespan.
In addition to these requirements, you must also consider how your vehicle is being used on a regular basis. You will obviously need an all-season tyre that readily adjusts to weather conditions, but you also need to consider things like how often you drive your vehicle (i.e., a daily commute to and from work or only occasionally around town for errands, etc.), as well as the specific kind of driving your regular routine encompasses (i.e., city, highway, stop-and-go, rural, off-road, etc.).
When making a tyre selection, there is, of course, no greater consideration than your safety and the safety of your passengers. High-quality tyres that are in good condition are an extremely important safety aspect of your vehicle. Your tyres are the first point of your braking system and fill the vital role of keeping your car firmly gripped on the road; regardless of existing weather conditions or sudden (evasive) maneuvers. Equally vital is tyre alignment and wheel balance, in order to prevent poor handling and steering vibration.

Regular tyre check-ups and servicing will help to extend the life of your tyres. Your tyre checkup can also include rotation (to keep tyre wear equalized); as well as checks on your wheel alignment and wheel balance. Both are affordable checks and can greatly improve tyre life and performance, as well as your overall driving experience.

If you are experiencing vibration issues or poor handling while driving (i.e., your car has a “floaty” feeling; you feel a lack of control when braking, etc.); if you are experiencing difficulties keeping tyres properly inflated or if you have low tyre tread and/or can see obvious balding areas, it is time to get your tyres checked and replaced.

Also, tyres can wear differently on each side, due to poor wheel alignment or under-inflation.
