Tyre tread depth
Tyres will always remain the determining factor in the contact between the car and the road surface. The optimum functioning of tyres is strongly influenced by their tread depth.
When should I replace my tyres?
It makes good sense to have your tyre specialist regularly check your tyres. This allows defects to be identified at an early stage, which can extend tyre lifespan and prevent many dangerous situations.
The correct tyre pressure
Correct tyre pressure is crucial for safe and comfortable driving. A tyre can only perform at its best when it is able to ensure sufficient stability and load capacity. And that is where having the correct tyre pressure comes in.
What is the EU tyre label?
European Regulation (EC) no. 1222/2009 requires that all tyres for passenger cars, light commercial vehicles, heavy commercial vehicles and buses that are produced after June 2012 should carry a sticker or be accompanied by a clearly visible label at the point of sale. Based on three aspects, the label gives a better insight into the tyre's characteristics.
Storing summer and winter tyres
The lifespan and performance of tyres can be increased by correct handling and proper storage when not in use. It is very important therefore that everyone is aware of how to do this.
