BALANCING

BALANCE YOUR TYRES

Regardless of how well or how little you drive, tyres do eventually wear down over time. It is unlikely that they’ll wear down evenly, and this can cause:

  • Quality Product
  • Unrivalled Delivery Service
  • Competitive Pricing

Otisdrive is not just another tyre wholesaler. We support our customers with prompt and convenient product delivery, and most of all reliability.

ALIGNMENT

ALIGN YOUR WHEELS FOR LONGER-LASTING TYRES

Tyres need looking after in order for them to last. One way to care for them is to check your car’s wheel alignment regularly – and not just when you feel a shudder or a shake.

When a wheel is not aligned, other wheels have to work harder to drag the misaligned wheel. This can cause a number of problems, like:

  • A directional pull on your steering wheel, forcing you to counter-steer.
  • Uneven tyre wear.
  • Future mechanical problems.

ROTATION

ROTATE YOUR TYRES TO BEAT WEAR AND TEAR

Tyre wear and tear is natural part of driving, unfortunately. Since most cars are front-engine cars, the front axle bears more weight than the rear axle. This means your front tyres wear quicker than your back tyres.

There are also other causes of uneven wear, like:

  • Turning left. Most interchanges and parking ramps require you to turn left. Left turns are tighter than right turns, causing your right front tyre to wear out faster than the left.
  • Sidewall damage. The sidewalls on your left tyres are more likely to get bumped and rubbed against the pavement when parking your car. This can cause asymmetric sidewall wear.
  • Braking. Heavy, sudden and frequent braking can add stress to your front tyres

PUNCTURES AND REPAIRS

It is normal for a tyre to lose air over time – even for brand-new tyres that are properly inflated and don’t have a puncture.

But if you’re having to pump your tyres more often than expected, it could point to a more serious problem, like:

  • A damaged wheel.
  • A damaged valve stem.
  • A punctured tyre.
  • Improper installation of the tyre.

Driving with a flat tyre can be very dangerous. It can also damage the wheel, the hub assembly, as well as the parts that come in contact with the road surface.

Controlling your car will also be difficult, especially when driving at higher speeds.
