Description: Some consumers look for the cheapest car tyres they can find, often buying used tyres or discount tyres online. But smart drivers stay safe by choosing quality tyres and rotating them regularly. Today's cars are equipped with a plethora of safety features, but one of the most important safety features is your tyres. Knowing a few important facts about your tyres can make a big difference in how you view these often neglected parts of your car. For optimum performance, consider what type of environment you will spend most of your time in. For instance, driving primarily on highways calls for a smooth tyre, while driving in stop-and-go traffic requires a different sort. Car manufacturers built your car with a specific tyre size in mind. Failure to use the correct size of tyres can prove detrimental to your car's performance. Improperly inflated tyres cause blowouts and grip poorly. Use a pressure gauge to check your car tyres. Too evenly distribute wear, rotate your tyres every other oil change (assuming you change your oil on time). Failure to do so will result in your front tyres wearing before your back ones. Use the penny test to decide when it's time to replace your tyres. Place a penny, head down, in between your tyre's tread. If you can see Lincoln's full head, it's time to visit your local tyre shop. While you could buy cheap tyres, they don't perform well and tend to wear out quickly. Consider spending a little extra money to upgrade for better performance, safety and longevity.
