ULTIMATE TYRE SAFETY FOR THE ULTIMATE DRIVING MACHINE.
When you have purchased a prestige vehicle such as a BMW you want to know that you will get the most out of it in terms of performance and safety. Keeping an eye on the status of your BMW’s tyres is a key way of ensuring that the handling and grip of your car are as effective as possible, reducing safety issues and maximising performance.
Our video below introduces you to our new state-of-the-art equipment in wheel alignment check, covering the essentials in the importance of tyre safety.
Here is some essential information to help you monitor your tyres correctly to keep you and your BMW safe on the road.
Check your tyre treads are legal
The minimum legal limit is 1.6mm across the middle 75% of your tyre at any point so use the tyre wear indicators in the base of the tyre tread groove to check the extent of the tyre tread wear. When the tread has worn to these indicators, your tyres are at 1.6mm and illegal so you need to replace them immediately.
If you would like us to check your tyres for you, please contact one of our BMW centres and book in for acomplimentary tyre safety check.
We price match tyres for your convenience.
Uneven Wear? Wheel Alignment Check only £39.99
Incorrect wheel alignment can result in rapid irregular tyre wear and can even affect the handling and safety of the vehicle.
Incorrect wheel alignment problems can be caused by hitting a kerb, driving into a pothole in the road or by excessive wear to steering or suspension components. It is
important to get your wheel alignment checked annually to ensure you get the most out of your tyres. Checking your wheel alignment regularly can prolong the life of your tyres by up to 12,000 miles and increase fuel efficiency.ˆ This can be monitored by unusual wear on your tyres or through a wheel alignment check at one of our retailers.*
(^Driving condition dependant. *Wheel Alignment check not available at Colne or South Lakes)
Make sure your tyre pressures are correct
Tyre pressure is a key factor in the extent and nature of tyre wear, so we recommend that you check your tyre pressures twice a month to ensure they are set to the correct level. Under-inflated tyres experience greater wear on the shoulders whereas over-inflated tyres tend to have excessive wear in the centre. Once you have checked and rectified any incorrect tyre pressures you may need to reset the tyre pressure warning, depending on the make and model of your car. You will find further information in your car’s manual or feel free to contact one of our BMW centres for further assistance.
