The condition of your tyres refers to any cracking, cuts, tears or bulges, which can all lead to tyre failure if not checked quickly. In addition, check for stones and nails in the tyres as these can compromise the safety of a tyre as well. If you notice any of these abnormalities, it’s important to act quickly and seek professional advice.
The condition of your tyres will deteriorate the longer they are on your wheels, so keep this in mind when checking over them. As a general rule, we recommend replacing your tyres after no more than 5-6 years, even if they have a healthy amount of tread left. This is because tyres become perished with age and are more at risk of failure.
