During the hot summer days, when you drive, the temperature of tyres increases faster, consequently, the heated air inside the tyres expands and its pressure rises quickly, which can lead to tyre blowout with disastrous consequences. A tyre blowout is a rapid loss of inflation pressure of a pneumatic tyre leading to an explosion.

Selecting the right tyres for your car can greatly influence your safety and driving experience. There are lots of factors which should be taken into account before you buy. Let's analyse them.


Choosing the right tyres

If you follow these simple steps, you will significantly increase the number of miles you drive without changing your tyres.

Most tyre manufacturers recommend replacing the tyre when its tread depth drops below 3mm. Let's see why this is so.

Testing tyre performance on the wet has shown that tyres should be changed when the tread depth is below 3mm. Britains Motor Industry Research Association (MIRA) conducted tests in 2004. which prove that worn out tyres greatly increase the likelihood of having a car accident in the wet, because the braking distance gets substantially longer.

Tyres are the only part of your vehicle that is continuously in contact with the road, and their condition greatly affects your safety. Bad  tyres can decrease your car’s performance, reducing the efficiency of braking, steering, speeding and driving comfort. Therefore, it is necessary to take care of your tyres and check them occasionally.
