DANGERS OF USING WORN TYRE
Worn tyres are a sign of danger. Tread grooves are vital for safe driving! Tread wear causes poor tyre performance and can lead to serious problems!
Worn tyres need a longer stopping distance on wet roads!
According to JATMA* study Comparison of the stopping distance of new tyres and worn tyres on wet surface. *Japan Automobile Tyre Manufactures Association
Driving in the rain with worn tyres is very dangerous!
Driving fast on a wet road with worn tyres may lead to slipping (hydroplaning phenomenon).
Replace the tyre immediately when the tread wear indicator shows!
The Tread wear indicator appears when the tread has worn out to 1.6mm.Never use a tyre where even just one tread wear indicator is exposed.
Advantages of Tyre Rotation
1. Prevention of Uneven Tread Wear
2. Extension of Tyre Service Life
3. Averaging of Tyre Fatigue
Note: The front-wheel tyres of an FF vehicle wear two or three times faster than the rear-wheel tyres because the front-wheel tyres function for both driving and steering.
