Important Factors To Consider When Changing To SUV Summer Tyres

NT - GlobalWhen the time comes to change the tyres from winter to summer tyres on your SUV, there are a few things that are important to consider.

Firstly, you need to think about whether you will change the tyres yourself or will you let a service station to do the job. Doing it yourself will be probably cheaper, considering that you have the time and the right tools to do it.  You also need to have storage space to store the tyres. Remember that the storage space should be dark and cool. This will make sure that the tyres last longer.

When you change the tyres, you should check wheter you need to rotate the tyres. Rotating tyres regularly is a good way to keep your tyres in shape for longer. You should rotate tyres once every 8,000 kilometres during normal driving or when the tyres have a difference in wear of 2 millimetres. For example, when a front-wheel drive car has 6 millimetres of tread on the front tyres and over 7 millimetres in the rear, you should rotate your tyres from front to back and vice versa. Make sure that you mark the tyres carefully once you have removed them. Once the tyres are marked for storage it is important that you clean the tyres and to get all the salt and dirt away.

After you have changed te tyres you should check the tyre pressure to ensure that you have the correct pressure. Incorrect tyre pressure has a negative effect on your car’s fuel economy and handling.

If you let a service statin do the tyre change for you, then there are less things to worry about. Experts at the service station have the experience, so you know that it will be done correctly and you don’t have to worry about the tyres falling off. In addition, most of the tyre service stations have storage facilities, so they can store the tyres for you. This is very important for people with limited storage facilities in their homes.
