Tyres wear out and need replacing, although, there are other reasons why replacing them for new tyres is a good idea.
- The number one reason for replacing tyres is, safety. Not just your own safety, but also the safety of other occupants in your car, as well as other motorists and pedestrians. As tyres age, the bonds that hold it together perish, and as a result, your tyres will tend to initially harden up (and so lose grip) or outright begin to crack and crumble and this can become very dangerous.
- Tyres also have a major effect on your car’s fuel economy. Your tyres turning, is the goal of the entire combustion process, and the more freely they can turn while still maintaining grip, the better your car will make use of the fuel it uses.
- A major reason that your tyres may need to be changed is that they simply are not suited for your needs. If you are going to take your vehicle off-road, it is a good idea to swap your road tyres for some that are specifically designed for tough terrain. Similarly, using meaty rock-crawling tyres on the highway will result in horrible road noise, as well as having a major impact on your performance, fuel economy, emissions, and your safety. Another thing to consider is that different tyres are made from different compounds and will have different tread patterns and so will be better suited for either cold or hot weather.
