There are some clear signs you
might need new tyres, as NRMA
MotorServe’s Con Kavalieros explains
A CRUCIAL SAFETY CONCERN for your car is
having tyres that are in good condition. While
checking tyre pressures weekly for under-
inflation can save fuel and help prevent
premature wear or structural damage, a tyre
can only perform at its required best for so
many kilometres. Here are some indications
it might be time for new tyres:
INSUFFICIENT TREAD DEPTH
Tyre tread is designed remove or disperse
water between the tyre and the road
surface to improve grip levels. The
minimum tread depth in NSW, as per RMS
requirements, is 1.5mm. A tyre with less
than 1.5mm tread depth can result in
greater stopping distances, reduced grip
levels and an increased risk of aquaplaning
or sliding in wet conditions.
A common misconception is that a tyre
only has to have 75 per cent of its tread
deeper than 1.5mm deep for it to be legal.
This is incorrect. The worn section of the
tyre is usually under the highest load, so it
needs the same tread depth as any other
part of the tyre.
DAMAGE TO SIDEWALLS
A visual inspection of the outer sidewalls
while checking the air pressures (the vehicle
manufacturer-fitted tyre placard will indicate
the correct range) can also reduce the risk of
tyre failure or blowouts if a problem is picked
up early. A bulge, bubble or egg-shaped lump
in the tyre sidewall is usually due to impact
with a gutter or pothole and indicates
internal structural damage.
The bulging area is where the inner
structure of the tyre sidewall has separated
and is allowing the air in the tyre to push
against the rubber facing of the sidewall.
This tyre is at an increased risk of failure and
needs replacement. It’s the same story if the
rubber facing on the sidewall has been cut or
damaged through to the inner structure.
A vehicle with misaligned steering can
also cause tyres to wear prematurely.
A weekly visual check of the tyres while
checking the pressures can identify an
issue early on, and having the wheel
alignment corrected can prolong the life
of your tyres. Even if the tyres appear to
be wearing well, a wheel alignment every
12 months, or 20,000km, is a good form
of preventative maintenance.

KNEE PAIN... NOW!!
“I was always in pain and wore knee supports or large fold over support
bandages. I also used a walking stick. When I received the Power Knee Straps
put them on and the pain disappeared. I then walked about 3/4Km without my
walking stick, walked to church and back this morning without my stick -
I walk around now almost as if I have normal legs!” - J Ireland (VIC)
