Tyre Tips

What Tyres Do

Your tyres are essential for safe driving; they are the only link between your vehicle and the road – a critical contact area no bigger than the palm of your hand.

Tyres have 4 vital functions:

  • Provide grip for braking and acceleration
  • Maintain steering and directional control
  • Support the weight of the vehicle
  • Act as a shock absorber for vibrations from the road
