How to check your tyre size

TYRE SAFETY & MAINTENANCE

  • Ensure your tyre tread depth is kept above 1.6mm.  The tread of your tyres allows you to grip on the road.  The less grip you have, the longer your braking distance will be.
  • Regularly check the air pressure of your tyres.  If the pressure is lower or greater than the manufacturer recommended figure this can lead to excessive wear on the tyre.  Tyre pressure also has an effect on your cars fuel economy.
  • Ensure your wheels and axel are correctly aligned.  Incorrect alignment will affect the handling of your vehicle and compromise your safety.  
  • Regularly check your tyres for deterioration, cuts, bulges and lumps.  
  • If you are unsure of a tyres origin, never fit it to your car.  It may be old and not roadworthy.
  • Avoid overloading your vehicle as this will add additional stress to your tyres.  If you are adding additional weight or towing, ensure you adjust the tyre pressure according the vehicle manual.
Tyre Pressure

TYRE PRESSURE

The tyre pressure for your vehicle can be found on a sticker on your door sill (as shown below), inside the petrol cap, under the vehicle bonnet or in your vehicle handbook.

It is important that even ground contact is maintained between the road and the tyre. If the tyre is over or under inflated, the contact is altered. This will impact on the grip of the tyre thus impacting on the fuel efficiency of the vehicle. The pressure of your vehicles tyres must be altered if you are increasing the load. If this is not detailed in the owner’s manual, please contact your local AHG dealer for assistance. A heavy load is classed as 2-3 passengers plus luggage. Do not exceed the maximum load stated in the manufacturer guidelines.

When checking the air pressure of your tyres always ensure the tyres are cold. Any increase in temperature can change the tyre pressure reading by up to 4psi which means you may not be travelling with the correctly inflated tyres.

Under inflated tyres results in excessive wear to the sides of the tyre. Over inflated tyres causes wear in the middle of the tyre which will provide a poor ride quality and reduced grip. Both of these scenarios will have a detrimental effect on the fuel economy of your vehicle.
