3 Tyre Tips for a Safe Easter Road Trip

Easter long weekend is a fun blast for the whole family, but whether you’re going on a road trip to the mountains or heading to the beach, it’s important to make sure your tyres are travel ready. Here are our 3 main tips for checking your tyres before hitting the road this Easter - writes David Basha from Kumho Tyre.

1. Tyre Pressure

How - The appropriate tyre pressure is outlined in the owner’s manual, and can occasionally be found on a sticker by the driver’s side door. Consider if the weight load is higher than your everyday drive, and fill your tyre pressure accordingly. If you plan on driving for a week or more, then make sure you are checking your tyre pressure every few days.

Why - Safety! Also remember the economic benefits that properly inflated tyres offer: your tyres wear more evenly; your car will maintain fuel economy; handling is greatly improved and; it could mean the difference to preventing costly accidents.

2. Baldness - Check Tread

How - A standard tyre comes with approximately 8mm of tread, and the legal amount of tyre tread is at least 1.8mm - any less and you will need new tyres. You can find your tread easily with a tread gauge.

Why - The depth of your tyre tread affects your handling and braking distance on wet roads by expelling water through the tread channels.

3. Check Your Spare

Repeat all the above steps for your spare tyre. Your spare is what will get you home safely when accidents occur. Ensure the pressure, tread and overall wear and tear signs before you head off on your Easter road trip.

Just remember ‘PTW’ - Pressure, Tread & Wear!
