Exclusive Summary About Hybrid Car Tires by Della Franklin and James S Todman

First time hybrid car users may still be quite a bit unfamiliar with the new and innovative hybrid car tire designs. When you are planning on replacing your hybrid car tires, remember to pick the low-rolling resistance tire models.

Five Tips to Keep Your Car Tyres in Good Condition

1. Correct Tyre Pressure

Regularly check your car tyres are not under or over inflated.

Whenever your car tyres are repaired or replaced make sure they are correctly balanced when remounted on your car. If not this will cause vibrations, increasing tyre wear, damaging suspension and leading to driver fatigue.

2. Balance and Alignment

Correct alignment is necessary to have the steering, suspension, wheel components and car tyres all working in harmony to achieve the optimum performance from your vehicle.

3. Inspection

Most tyres have a tread wear indicator built into them. Remove any stones and other objects stuck in a car tyre's tread.

4. Repairs

Don't risk driving on a car tyre that is losing pressure. Never try repairing a car tyre yourself.

5. Tyre Rotation

By regularly rotating the tyres their lifespan is extended and uneven car tyre wear is avoided.

Visit a car tyre specialist for further advice and to check the condition of your current car tyres.
