Are Your Car’s Tyres in Need of Replacement?
Over time, tyres become worn and lose their tread. This makes the vehicle slippery and dangerous to drive. The minimum legal tread depth for tyres in New Zealand is 1.5 mm. This ensures that your vehicle isn’t a safety hazard and is able to come to a stop when it needs to. If your vehicle becomes slippery or difficult to drive, it is strongly recommended that you check the tread depth on each tyre.
A flat/punctured tyre can be caused by driving over objects such as nails, sharp rocks or broken glass. You may have a flat tyre if:
- Your vehicle suddenly becomes difficult to steer
- Your vehicle steers to the left or right as if it is being pulled in that direction
- Your vehicle suddenly swerves to the left or right. (usually caused by a blowout)
Signs your tyre is punctured and needs repair:
- Tyre is visibly flat: If you can visually see damage to the tyre, such as a puncture or tear, it is likely that you have a flat tyre.
- Thumping or thudding noise: If you hear a thumping or thudding noise coming from your vehicle, it could be a sign of a flat tyre. This sound is usually caused by the tyre hitting the pavement as it rotates.
- Difficulty steering: A flat tyre can cause difficulty steering, especially if the tyre is completely deflated. You may notice that your vehicle pulls to one side or the steering wheel feels heavy and difficult to turn.
- Vibrations or shaking: If you feel vibrations or shaking in the steering wheel or throughout the vehicle, it could be a sign of a flat tyre. This is typically caused by the uneven distribution of weight on the remaining tyres.
- Low tyre pressure warning: If your vehicle is equipped with a tyre pressure monitoring system, a flat tyre can trigger a warning light on the dashboard.
