Check the condition of your car to arrive safely at the chalet

Whether you’re hitting the road for a few minutes to get to your doorstep, for a few hours to get to the cottage, or to take a trip across the country. It’s essential to make sure your vehicle will take you safely to your destination.Check the condition of your car to arrive safely at the chalet.

In order to get the best performance from your vehicle. It is important to perform certain maintenance tasks such as changing the oil, checking the brake pads and rotating the tires. Another important aspect of maintenance, however, is often overlooked: the inspection of tire wear.

This is an important part of any car maintenance because it is your tires that allow you to control your vehicle when it is running on asphalt and you are accelerating, decelerating or braking, whatever the road conditions.

Here are some important tips from Nokian Tires experts to keep you safe on the road:




Adequate tread

When the tires wear, the grip decreases. Tires with a millimeter wear indicator, like the newer Nokian Tires, are beneficial because they allow you to see if a tire needs to be replaced. Located in the center of the tire surface, the indicators reveal the remaining depth of the main tire groove in millimeters.

These numbers are erased as the tire wears out. When there are only four millimeters deep, it’s time to replace your tires. If your tires do not have such an indicator, try the coin test: insert a five-cent coin into the groove of the tread, positioning the head of Queen Elizabeth with her crown up. If you can see the top of the crown, your tires need to be replaced.



Tire pressure

Just like the tread depth, proper tire pressure is essential to maintain their efficiency. If the tires are not sufficiently inflated. It can be difficult to control the vehicle in extreme road conditions, which can force the vehicle to steer to one side.

Insufficient tire pressure can even increase rolling resistance on the road. Resulting in increased fuel consumption, increased CO2 emissions and increased risk of a tire bursting.

Since tire pressure can also be affected by temperature changes. Check your tires when they are cold before driving, not after driving the vehicle. Use an inexpensive pressure gauge and check the tire pressure every two weeks or before a long car trip.




Take care on the road

Take care of your tires as well as you do your car. Always drive at a reasonable speed, refrain from excessive wheel spinning, and avoid potholes, obstacles and sidewalks.

If you notice a damaged tire, replace the damaged tire with the spare tire. Visit your tire dealer as soon as possible to limit the damage.

Please be aware that any tire with a tread less than 1.6 millimeters or with a hole larger than 6.4 millimeters in diameter must be replaced and cannot be repaired.
