Speedways Tyres


    Maintain correct inflation pressure as recommended by the vehicle manufacturer or tyre companies.
  • Get air pressure of your tyres checked at least once in a fortnight.
  • Always check the air pressure when the tyres are cold (i.e. within 2killometers of drive). It is normal for tyres to heat up and air pressure to go up as you drive.
  • Increase inflation pressure by 30 kPa (5 psi) over the car maker’s recommendation, when going on a long journey or sustained high speed.
  • Replace defective valve cores and always use valve caps.
  • Visually inspect your tyres for uneven tread wear regularly.
  • Rotate your tyres every 5,000 to 8,000 kms to optimize tyre life.
  • Have your wheel alignment and balancing checked periodically particularly whenever you have indications such as ‘pulling’ or ‘vibrations’.
  • Remove tyres when they are worn up to Tread Wear Indicators (TWI).
  • Whenever a tyre is demounted for any reason, wheel balancing is done before remounting the wheel on the car.
  • Respond immediately to changes in vehicle handling or mechanical faults specially while driving on highways/expressways.
  • Use only recommended rim size, tyre size, ply rating, load index and speed symbol.
  • Ensure nuts are in place and properly tightened.
  • Ensure that the tyre/tube is fitted correctly on rim.
  • Always use the correct size of tube for a given tyre size.
  • Check your tyres regularly for cuts and damages.
