Land Rover Tyres
Be prepared with tyre maintenance
Land Rovers are designed for adventures, but their tyres are subject to the same wear and tear as any vehicles. As the only point of contact between your car and the road, tyre safety is not something to take for granted, so here are a few things to look out for to maintain them properly, giving you many miles of safe and enjoyable driving.
Are your tyres legal?
The minimum legal limit is 1.6mm across the middle 75% of your tyre at any point. In the base of the tyre tread groove you’ll find tyre wear indicators. Once the tread has worn to these indicators, your tyres are at 1.6mm and illegal, so you will need to get them replaced immediately.
If you would prefer us to check them for you, please contact one of our Land Rover retailers and book in for a complimentary tyre safety check for extra peace of mind.
Are your tyre pressures correct?
As well as tyre treads, it is important to check that your tyre pressures are correct too. It is recommended that you check your tyres at least twice a month to minimise the risk of incorrect pressure which could lead to irregular wear patterns. Over-inflated tyres could cause excessive wear to the centre of the tyres whereas under-inflation can cause greater wear on the shoulders. You may need to reset the tyre pressure warning system depending on make and model of your car, so please check your car manual for more information or contact one of our Land Rover retailers for more information.
Are your tyres unevenly worn?
If your tyres are worn, it is advisable to have your vehicle’s wheel alignment checked as even tiny changes to alignment can result in uneven tyre wear and affect your car’s performance.
Our like-for-like price-match service ensures that, if you do need to replace your tyres, you can rest assured that you are not only choosing from a range of quality tyres, but that they have been highly competitively priced.
