Things to look for when checking tyre condition

The tyres are extremely important elements of the car, yet many people do not think much about them when checking that their vehicle is roadworthy.

However, in addition to checking the amount of air in them and whether there are any obvious flats, which is the only check that many people perform, there are other elements that you check your car for on a regular basis when it comes to the tyres to ensure the condition is OK. These are listed below:

You should check for oil and grease on the tyres which can build up depending on driving conditions, and you should clean these off where present as they clearly reduce the grip of the tyres

You should check for any foreign objects on the tyres: sometimes little bits of glass or stone can get caught in the tread and cause damage or even puncture.

Cuts and bulges can also appear in the tyre walls so check for these. Another element to check for is that the tread wear is even; if it is uneven then it could be due to a fault with the car and therefore may need to be checked out. Finally you should check that the tread depth is adequate.
