How to determine the correct tyre size

Selecting the appropriate tyre dimensions is essential for achieving peak performance, guaranteeing safety, and extending the lifespan of your tyres. Here are some steps to follow when determining the correct tyre size for your car:

Check your car manual

Your car manual should have information about the correct tyre size and type recommended for your vehicle.

Check your tyre sidewall

The sidewall of your tyre will have a series of numbers and letters that indicate the tyre size, type, and other specifications. Look for the following:

  • Tire Width: The first number in the series is the tyre width, in millimetres.
  • Aspect Ratio: The second number in the series is the aspect ratio, which is the height of the tyre sidewall as a percentage of the width.
  • Rim Diameter: The third number in the series is the diameter of the rim in inches.

 

For example, a tyre with the following numbers on its sidewall: P205/60R16, would indicate the following:

  • Tyre Width: 205 mm
  • Aspect Ratio: 60%
  • Rim Diameter: 16 inches

Check your current tyres

If you’re not sure about your car’s recommended tyre size, you can check the size of your current tyres. Ensure that the size and specifications of the new tyres you choose are the same as your current ones.

Consult with a tyre specialist

If you’re still unsure about the correct tyre size for your car, it’s best to consult with a tyre specialist who can help you determine the right size based on your car’s make and model.

Tyre Tread and Wear

The part of the tyre that makes contact with the road surface is known as the tyre tread, and it plays a vital role in providing traction and grip. However, over time, tyre tread can wear down, negatively impacting both performance and safety. When it comes to tyre tread and wear, here are some crucial factors to consider:

Check your tyre tread depth

The legal minimum tread depth for tyres in Australia is 1.6 mm. It’s important to check your tyre tread depth regularly to ensure that your tyres are safe to use. You can use a tread depth gauge to measure the depth of the tread.

Check for signs of wear

In addition to measuring the tread depth, you should also look for signs of wear and tear on your tyres. These can include:

 

  • Cracks or cuts in the sidewall
  • Uneven wear on the tread
  • Bulges or blisters on the tyre

 

If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to have your tyres checked by a professional.

Rotate your tyres

Regularly rotating your tyres can help to promote even wear and extend the lifespan of your tyres. Tyres should be rotated every 10,000 km or as recommended by your car manufacturer.

Avoid harsh driving conditions

Harsh driving conditions, such as driving on rough roads or in extreme temperatures, can accelerate tyre wear. It’s important to avoid these conditions when possible and to drive safely and responsibly.

By keeping these tips in mind, you can ensure that your tyre tread remains in excellent condition, guaranteeing optimal tyre performance and safety. In case of any doubts about your tyre’s condition, seek assistance from a tyre specialist who can provide you with expert advice and guidance.

Maintaining and Repairing your Tyres

Regular maintenance and tyre repairs can help to extend their lifespan and ensure optimal performance and safety on the road. Here are some things to keep in mind when it comes to tyre maintenance and repair:

Check your tyre pressure

The correct tyre pressure is essential for ensuring good fuel economy, handling, and safety. You should check your tyre pressure regularly and ensure you inflate your tyres to the recommended pressure, as indicated in your car manual or on the tyre sidewall.

Check your wheel alignment

Poor wheel alignment can cause uneven tyre wear and affect handling and safety. You should have your wheel balance and alignment checked regularly, especially if you notice any signs of uneven wear on your tyres.

Patch punctures

If you have a puncture in your tyre, it may be possible to fix it with a patch. Before you do, however, it’s important to have the puncture checked by a professional to ensure the tyre is not damaged beyond repair.

Replace Worn Tyres

Tyres that are worn down beyond the legal minimum tread depth of 1.6 mm should be replaced. It’s important to replace all four tyres at the same time, or at least in pairs on the same axle, to ensure balanced handling and performance.

Avoid hitting curbs and potholes

Designed to deliver good performance in different weather conditions such as wet, dry, and light snow, all-season tyres are an excellent compromise between summer and winter tyres. They are suitable for use in most regions of Australia.
