Foreign bodies in the tyre
The tyre wear is affected by several factors:
Driving style вЂ“ fast cornering, heavy acceleration and hard braking all increase tyre wear. Have the running gear checked by a qualified workshop if the tyres show excessive wear despite normal driving style.
Unbalanced wheels вЂ“ the wheels on new vehicles are balanced. However, various factors encountered in normal driving can cause them to become unbalanced, which results in steering vibration. Unbalanced wheels will affect levels of wear on the steering system and the suspension. In this case the wheels should be balanced again. A new tyre will have to be balanced after fitting.
Running gear settings вЂ“ incorrect wheel alignment causes excessive tyre wear, impairing the safety of the vehicle. Have the wheel alignment checked by a qualified workshop if tyres show excessive wear.
WARNINGIf you notice unusual vibration or the car pulling to one side while the vehicle is in motion, this may indicate that one of the tyres is damaged.
