Do I Need New Tyres?

Pacific Toyota's Service Centre in Cairns cares about your safety and want to ensure that you and your family are safe on the road, but too often people don’t realise that their tyres are worn out or damaged. Living in Cairns with our wet season and slippery roads it is more important than ever that Cairns drivers are vigilant about the state of their tyres.

So how can you tell when you need new tyres? At Pacific Toyota Service Centre Cairns, we recommend the following:

1.       Inspect your tyres regularly

It’s important to inspect your tyres regularly, and in particular, you should look out for uneven tread wear, shallow tread, rocks or nails in the tyre or other damaged areas and ensure you check the valve caps also for damage. It’s also a good idea to check your spare tyre too for any of these issues, especially if you’ve had it for a while. Regular inspection is necessary and if you are unsure about your tyres don’t take the risk, the professional team at a Cairns’ Pacific Toyota Service Centre will be happy to give you advice.

2.       Pay attention to the ‘feel’ of your tyres as you drive.

A rough ride may indicate excessive wear or that your tyres are damaged in another way. Don’t ignore vibrations, unusual noises or any other disturbances while driving. Immediately reduce your speed and drive with caution until you can safely pull over. Inspect your tyres and if a tyre is damaged, deflate it and replace it with your spare tyre. If you cannot see any damage and cannot identify what’s causing the issue, take your vehicle to a tyre dealer, such as Cairns’ Pacific Toyota Service Centre for a thorough inspection. They’ll be sure to find out what the issue is for you.
