Air pressure in a tyre can strongly influence the tyre life, performance of the vehicle and safety of passengers. Tyres that overinflate can reduce the ability to absorb road shocks and as a result the centre of the tyre can experience excessive wear. Underinflated tyres create more rolling resistance, which can have a negative impact on your vehicle's fuel efficiency.
- Tyre pressure checklist
- Tyre pressures should be checked on a weekly basis
- Pressure should be checked when tyre is cold
- Valves should be checked regularly
- Sealing type valves should be used
Generally new tyres have approximately 8mm of tread when manufactured, however, as tyres wear, the ability to disperse water reduces. It is imperative that your vehicle has more than 1.6mm tread. To ensure safety, tyres should be replaced before the tread wears to the Tread Wear indicators. To find out more information or if you are unsure how to read your tread depth, contact your nearest Honda Tyre Centre.
Tyre Fitment and Rotation
Poorly fitted tyres can cause poor handling, vibration and rapid tread wear. Therefore it is important to have your tyres fitted correctly. Always ensure your tyres are fitted by a qualified technician to secure driving safety.
Tyre rotation is vital to achieving even tread wear and long tread wear life. The tyres on a vehicle’s driven wheels wear more rapidly than the tyres on the non-driven wheels. The difference in wear rates is particularly large on a front-wheel-drive vehicle, where the front tyres, which are subjected both to steering forces and to engine power, wear much more quickly than the rear tyres, whose loading is relatively light. Regular tyre rotation will ensure even tread wear amongst all four tyres; you can check the recommended rotation intervals in your Owner's Service and Warranty Manual. If you haven't had this done for a while, speak to your local Honda Tyre Centre today to book in a service.
