This is why proper tyre maintenance is vital in ensuring that we get from A to B safely and with no hassle. But how do you know when tyres need replacing?

What causes tyres problems?

Before we address how to know when your tyres need replacing, we need to understand what causes tyre problems. Many factors can impact tyres and cause damage, wear, tear and more. Here are some of the things that can cause problems with your tyres…

  • Potholes & Road Conditions

With over a million potholes marring UK roads, it should come as no surprise that these uneven road surfaces can cause significant damage to your tyres. Our tyres face a constant battle against tough road conditions which can lead to increased wear and tear, therefore compromising your vehicle’s performance and safety.

  • Improper Tyre Maintenance

But UK roads are completely to blame. Tyre maintenance can sometimes slip our minds but neglecting these necessary tasks can increase the risk of premature tyre wear. Monitoring tyre pressure and ensuring proper inflation levels are key tasks to undertake to ensure your tyres are roadworthy.

  • Load Capacity

All vehicles and tyres have a recommended load capacity which, if exceeded, can place undue stress on your tyres. Putting excessive strain on your tyres can impact their structural integrity and longevity. If you’re not sure what the maximum load capacity is for your vehicle, we advise checking your vehicle handbook.

  • Age & Wear

Like any piece of equipment, tyres aren’t immune to ageing and wear with frequent use. Unfortunately, tyre ageing and wear can’t be stopped and as tyres age, the rubber may degrade. This degradation will lead to loss of tread and the likelihood of cracks. We recommend regularly inspecting your tyres for wear and tear.

How do you know when tyres need replacing?

Now that you know what causes tyre problems, how do you know when tyres need replacing? Here are some key warning signs that your tyres are on their way out…

  • Uneven Tread Wear

Uneven tread wear patterns are a sure sign that you need to replace your tyres. These patterns can be identified by areas of significantly differing tread depths and may indicate alignment issues, improper inflation or general wear and tear. If you spot uneven tread wear, you must replace your tyres to ensure optimal performance and safety.

  • Vibrations or Shaking

If you’ve noticed your vehicle or steering column vibrating or shaking whilst driving, you could have tyre problems that need to be addressed. Replacing your tyres when you spot vibrations or shaking is vital to stopping further structural damage in its tracks and keeping you safe on the road.

  • Visible Damage

One of the easiest ways to spot that your tyres need replacing is by inspecting them for visible damage. Bulges, cuts or cracks are sure signs that your tyres are damaged and need replacing. Failing to address these problems could cause blowouts, punctures and other dangerous driving hazards.

  • Loss of Tyre Pressure

Is your vehicle frequently losing tyre pressure? If so, then your tyres could have a puncture, leak or valve stem issues. The symptoms of low tyre pressure can be indicative of more serious issues and must be addressed immediately to ensure optimal fuel efficiency, vehicle handling, and tyre longevity.

  • Poor Vehicle Handling

Is your vehicle pulling to one side whilst driving? If so, you may need to replace your tyres. Vehicle pulling may indicate uneven tyre wear or misalignment, both of which can be detrimental if left unaddressed. Replacing your tyres ensures even tyre wear and can improve your overall driving performance.

  • Excessive Road Noise

Excessive road noise such as rumbling, roaring or groaning can suggest that there is an issue with your tyres. In addition to making a driving experience uncomfortable, unusual or excessive road noise can indicate more significant tyre or vehicle issues and, left unaddressed, could impact the structural integrity of your vehicle.

  • Dashboard Warning Lights

Most modern vehicles are equipped with tyre pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) which provide warning lights on your vehicle’s dashboard. TPMS can highlight when tyre pressure is low or irregular, providing you with easy alerts to problems. If your dashboard warning lights inform you of tyre issues, it’s important to act fast.

  • Overheated Tyres

Are your tyres overheating, even on short journeys? If so, then you may need to replace them. Overheated tyres are caused by excessive friction or underinflation and pose a serious safety risk to drivers, passengers and other road users. If you spot signs of overheating, you must seek professional assistance.

If you’ve spotted any of the above, you must seek professional tyre replacement services. Here at Mobile Tyres 4 You, our friendly team will assist you wherever you are. Contact us today!
