In some situations, our technicians may recommend that a new tyre is fitted, instead of the existing one being repaired. Examples of this include if there are signs of clear damage or deterioration, such as bead damage or exposed cords, or if a poor-quality repair job was previously done on the tyre.
Another common circumstance leading to a decision to replace rather than repair a tyre, is the tread depth being illegal – in other words, below 1.6mm across the central 75% of the tyre.
Regardless, in each individual instance, our technicians will carefully scrutinise and assess a particular tyre’s condition, before advising in favour of either repair or replacement.
“Flat spots” are badly worn sections of tyre tread that – while not always immediately physically visible – are often noticed by the driver in the form of bumps, thumps and vibrations while they are on the move.
Common causes of tyre flat spots include skidding while braking harshly, or a tyre ‘settling’ into a flatter shape when parked up for an extended period of time. It’s also possible for minor flat spots from previous incidents to gradually worsen.
Regardless of what you suspect might have caused your tyre flat spot, we would always advise you to have it checked out by a reputable garage like ours, as soon as you become aware of it. A flat spot on a tyre is by no means a mere cosmetic issue – it could imperil the integrity of the entire tyre.
Even if you take every possible measure to maintain and look after your tyre over time, with prolonged and regular use, it will inevitably wear out eventually.
However, there are various strategies you can adopt to help slow down your tyres’ rate of wear. These include ensuring your tyres are always at the correct pressure and alignment, as well as reducing the strain on the tyres by emptying the boot.
Another ‘common sense’ measure is to simply take particular care while driving. That means avoiding aggressive acceleration, harsh braking, fast cornering and bumps or scrapes that could potentially damage your tyres and knock your vehicle’s wheels out of alignment.
