CHECKED YOUR TYRES LATELY?

They’re your point of contact with the road and they keep you safe in all conditions. So it’s really important to check your tyres once a month or more.

  • Make sure tread depth is at least 1.6mm, which is the legal minimum. Simply put a 20p coin in the tyre tread groove, and if the tyre is legal, the outer border of the coin should be hidden.
  • To be really sure and get the best from your Citroën, you should think about changing your tyres when they have about 3mm of tread.
  • Always check tyre pressures when your tyres are cold and make sure all the valve caps are in place.

GETTING TO GRIPS WITH TYRE WEAR

Your tyres will wear down as the miles pass – that’s only natural - but some things can cause premature wear.

  • Under or over inflation can make your tyres wear out much more quickly. Check the correct tyre pressures in your Citroën’s handbook.
  • Incorrect balancing of wheels can cause vibration that leads to tyre wear.
  • Wheel alignment, or tracking as it’s sometimes called needs to be spot on.

If your wheels aren’t aligned properly, then tyre wear will result and you may feel the car pulling to one side while you’re driving.

THE BASICS AT A GLANCE

It’s really important to look after your tyres. They’re vital to the safety and performance of your Citroën, and running illegal tyres could land you with a hefty fine and points on your licence. Make the basic checks part of your routine.

  • Take a look at each tyre to ensure that there are no cuts, tears, lumps or bulges
  • Use the simple 20p test to check that there is at least 1.6mm tread depth across 75% of each tyre and all the way round.
  • Always make sure that tyre pressures match the recommendations in your Citroën’s handbook.
  • Fit the right tyres for your Citroën model and its wheels, and avoid fitting different types of tyre on the same axle.
  • Ask your Citroën dealer to make a free professional check of your tyres. Their knowledge of your car and its tyres is second to none.
