Car Spare Tyre Checking and Installation in Hamilton

Why is the spare tyre important?

If you have ever experienced a flat tyre while you are driving, you will know how important it is that you have a working spare tyre handy. A spare tyre can be used to replace the flat tyre, allowing you to continue your drive.

It is important that you replace your spare tyre once it has been used to replace a flat/punctured tyre. This is because you never know when you might need it again. Having a suitable spare tyre can save you the expenses and hassle of getting a new tyre when your current one goes flat.

Performing maintenance on your spare tyre:

What many people don’t know is that the spare tyre can lose effectiveness, even when it is not in use. This is because tyre rubber can degrade over time and the air can slowly leak out of the spare tyre, whcih may mean it is partially flat when you go to use it. A spare tyre check can determine the condition of the spare tyre and its air pressure, where the spare tyre can be pumped up or replaced if necessary. 

Not using your spare tyre can also lead to uneven tread depth. For this reason, we recommend that you swap your spare tyre with an in-use tyre whenever a tyre rotation is performed.

Please note: To be legally used on the road, your spare tyre must have at least the minimum legal tread depth across the entire tyre, and be able to pass a Warrant of Fitness (WOF). If you fit a spare tyre with less than the legal tread depth then you are putting yourself, your passengers (as well as other motorist at risk) and could be find by the police if caught.
