    Uneven Tyre Wear – Repairs, Replacement & Diagnostics in Hamilton

    About tyre wear:

    Uneven tyre wear repairs Hamilton

    In New Zealand, a car’s tyres must pass a series of requirements in order to be considered road-legal. If your car’s tyres do not meet these requirements, the safety of your vehicle will be compromised and you will fail your next Warrant of Fitness. Having a tyre tread depth above 1.5mm will keep your tyres in contact with the road, allowing you to have increased control over your vehicle.

    Uneven tyre wear occurs when the tread depth of one or more of your tyres is degrading more quickly than the others. The will often lead to tyres needing to be replaced more frequently. There is often an underlying cause for uneven tyre wear, which when identified and repaired will prevent the problem from happening with new tyres.

    It is natural for tyres to wear slightly unevenly. This is due to the configuration of your vehicle (front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive). A tyre rotation can prevent this from becoming an issue. 

     

    Causes of uneven tyre wear:

    Improper tyre inflation – If one or more of your car’s tyres are inflated incorrectly, it can lead to the tyres wearing at an increased rate. To avoid this, regularly inflate your tyres according to the specifications in your owner’s manual.

    Wheels in need of alignment – A wheel alignment is when mechanics adjust the angles of the tires which affects how they make contact with the road. If your wheels are not aligned correctly, they will wear quickly and need replacement.

    Damaged suspension – If suspension components such as the tie rods become damaged, they can cause tyres to wear more quickly.

    Car leaning to one side – Damage to the suspension can result in the car leaning to one side. This will apply an increased load to the tyres on one side, causing them to wear quickly.

    Braking problems – In some cases, a fault in your braking system can lead to the tyres wearing quickly.
