You have to be extra careful and conscious about your car tyres, especially in the scorching heat of summer. The extremely hot weather conditions can adversely impact your car tyres and increase the risks of tyre blowouts. Waiting until the tyre explodes or gets prematurely damaged can lead to additional repair costs and put your life in danger. It is time to ensure your car’s safety to avoid mishaps and have a happy summer journey. There are several things you should examine to keep your car tyres in good shape and functional in summer. Here is how you can take care of your tyres -

  • Maintain Optimum Tyre Pressure
    The temperature of the surroundings affects the air pressure inside the tyre and causes it to inflate. However, periodic checking of the tyre pressure will allow you to maintain optimum air inside the tyre and eliminate the risk of worn-out tyres. Check the pressure when the tyres are cold to know the exact number. If the tyers are hot and in extended contact with the road, the constant friction generates heat and increases the temperature which will give inaccurate tyre pressure readings. According to experts, the recommended tyre pressure in summer is between 32 PSI to 35 PSI.
  • Replace Worn Tyres Immediately
    All tyres face wear issues after being used over an extended period. Continuous usage and seasonal changes speed up the deterioration process for your tyres, and you cannot prevent it. However, you need to examine the tyres closely to identify the damage like tread separation, cracks, and bulges on the surface. Continuing to use worn-out tyres can cause various problems like unpredictable stopping distance, lack of grip over the surface, and unresponsive braking. Hence, consider replacing the tyres if you find
    alignment and air pressure problems.
  • Regular tyre Rotation
    It is one of the good ways to get the maximum use out of your tyres and maintain their tread wear. You can perform tyre rotation every 8,000 to 10,000 km. According to the widely used rotation pattern, the tyres of your vehicle must be rotated front to rear or vice-versa on the same side of the car.
  • Prefer Summer Tyres
    Summer tyres offer advanced performance compared to all-season tyres, especially on hot roads like the UAE’s. They have finely tuned tread patterns that offer enhanced grip, better responsiveness, speed, traction, and braking on dry surfaces. Installing summer tyres offer low rolling resistance and create less strain on the car. They are made for high performance, speed, and agility which is best suited in hot weather conditions.
  • Check The Tyre Tread And Valves Regularly
    Usually, a new tyre has around 8-9 mm of tread depth which eventually gets shallower with regular driving. However, you need to make sure that the depth doesn’t fall below 1.6 mm or it may cause safety risks. Closely examine the tread wear before going on long drives. Also, move your hand over the tyres to check for uneven wear. Ideally, it should feel plain and smooth. If not, then chances are the tyres are not inflated and end up being flat.

    Signs You Should Replace Your Car Tyres
    Some predictable tyre conditions indicate that you should replace your car tyres immediately. They are -
  • When The Treads Look Low
    Treads enhance your vehicle’s ability to gain traction on various odd-even
    surfaces. But if you find your car tyres look like grooves and have become less defined or smooth, it is time to replace them.
  • Tyre Cracks
    Cracked tyres can’t handle the air pressure inside and lead to a blowout. They appear mostly on the sidewall, outer part, and underneath the treads. Replace the tyre before the problem gets severe.
  • If The Tyre Light Comes On
    It is one of the obvious reasons you should replace the car tyres. If the tyre light flashes endlessly even after inflation, it is time to get new tyres.

You can conduct thorough maintenance of your tyres before summer arrives to ensure that they stay in good shape. You can avoid harsh driving, quick acceleration, and braking hard, especially on hot surfaces. Careful consideration of all the signs will allow you to do timely replacements and repairs.
