SOME PRATICAL TIPS

Your specialist tire in Geneva and around

When should i chang my tyres ?

On all tyres, you will find a wear and tear indicator on the side with the marking TWI. Depending on the law, the depth of the profile should not be below 1,6mm. However, to retain maximum grip on snow or to retain a minimal stopping distance and avoid hydroplaning, we advise that tyres should be changed after 3,0mm depth for summer tyres, and 4,0mm for winter tyres.

When you first put new tyres on your vehicle, drive at modest speeds for the first few kilometres and regularly check the depth of the profile, the tread and the regularity of usage.

What means « Run on Flat » ?

The ‘Run on Flat’ tyres allow drivers to drive a further 30km (thereabouts) at a maximum speed of 80km/h even with a flat tyre.

For example, on the tyre it says « 215/65R16 102H »
215 For example, on the tyre it says « 215/65R16 102H »
65 corresponds to the height of the flank (side) expressed as a percentage of the width of the surface. In this case, the height of the flank is 65% of the width of the surface
R is the type of manufacturing of the body. In this instance; radius. D for diagonal
16
is the interior diameter in inches. This figure should correspond with the wheel dimensions
102 represents load, that is the load capacity that the wheel can support
H
is the speed indicator. In this instance, the tyre can run therefore at a maximum speed of 210 km/h

Don’t forget to check the pressure of your tyres !

It is imperative to check the pressure of your tyres (when cold), including the spare wheel, once a month and as before a long journey.

A tyre, which has not the right pressure risks overheating and trigger an explosion. Also, the less pressure a tyre has, the more the car consumes fuel and its performance is degrading.

You will find the recommended pressure in the owner’s manual or on the sticker found in the door by the drivers seat or on the petrol tank cover.

It is of equal importance that you check the pressure in your spare tyre, too.

Correct balancing is necessary every time you change the tyres. This avoids or at least limits vibrations.

What is the parallelism (geometry) of a car ?

Parallelism is the alignment between the front and back wheels of the same axle. It must be checked after a collision, after impact with a pavement, following a change in the shock absorbers and other pieces, following abnormal wearing of the inner and outer side of the tyres or if the vehicle develops a tendency to drift left or right. An incorrect alignment can cause damage to your tyres and your steering accuracy, cause premature wearing as well as reduce grip, and greaten fuel consumption. For your comfort and your security, alignment in your wheels is of great importance.

Taking care of your tyres

For tyres and wheels, laying them down flat, aka horizontally, stacked, without any additional weight on top. Avoid prolonged exposure to the sun and the elements.

Fastening

For those who prefer changing your tyres yourself, ensure that the fastenings correspond to your vehicle type as well as your tyre type.
