Ensure your tyres are correctly inflated.
Under or over-inflation is dangerous and can lead to excessive tread wear. Look for the manufacturer’s recommended tyre pressure, listed on the sticker usually located on the driver’s side door pillar or fuel flap, or have a tyre specialist inflate it for you.
Check the age of your tyres.
There is no set rule for at what the age tyres should be replaced. However, some car makers advise against using tyres over six years old. Over time heat, sunlight and ozone can affect the tyre compound. To check the age of your tyres, look at the Tyre Identification Number (TIN). The last four digits indicate the week and year the tyre was made, for example a tyre with TIN XXX4804 was manufactured in the 48th week of 2004. If in doubt, check with a tyre specialist at your nearest Bridgestone Select.
