In no way, can one tell you how long the tyres of your car will last or the mileage which it will give. The lifespan of a car-tyre depends on a lot of things; say the weather conditions of the area, the type of road/terrain and other factors. One must never take chances when it comes to the tyres of their car. Here, we will discuss how to determine the lifespan of a tyre and when you should change them.
On an average, a tyre lasts for about a good 4-5 years, provided the condition of the roads are good. After the third year of your car-tyre usage, get it checked or inspected once every year at the least. Precaution is always better than the cure. It is always advisable to change your car-tyres after the usage of about ten years even though it appears to be in working condition. Follow the recommendations given by the manufacturer of the tyres when it comes to its replacement. You can increase the lifespan of your tyres if you take good care of its tread wear, air pressure, and alignment.
On the other hand, there are a number of things which we might find on Indian roads which can damage the tyres, thus decreasing the lifespan of a tyre. For example, the potholes which form on the roads after the monsoon or various obstacles which you might have to face on road. Sharp objects and speed bumps always affect the lifespan of the tyres. The climate of the area also plays a key role in determining the lifespan of a tyre. Other than that, the driving habits of the driver also tell us a lot about how long the tyres will last. Unnecessary speeding, quick starts, and emergency braking or driving on damaged roads will shorten the life of tyres.
Inspect your car tyres regularly and report any changes in the car while you are getting it serviced. Always be careful on the road and always take the necessary precautions. Drive safe!
