It's so easy to do, but it's one of those things we all forget. However, poor road-holding, steering vibration and longer stopping distances aren't just annoying traits. They can pose a real danger on the road - and are all signs that there could be a problem with your tyres.
However, it is a problem we can easily resolve. So to make sure you and your occupants are being driven safely, remember to check the following:
- Tyre pressure is the correct level - not too much or too little
- There are no signs of side wall cracks - a real sign of ageing
- The tread depth is not below the legal minimum of 1.6mm - this can affect your braking distance up to 70% and increase the risk of aquaplaning (we recommend tyre replacement at 2mm)
At Nissan, we know how important tyre safety is. That's why we offer a tyre health check. So whether the time has come to replace your tyres or you feel they just need looking at by a professional to give you the added piece of mind, give your dealer a call today.
