Chris Wicks from Bob’s Tyre Centres and TJM shared the following tips with Good News Fraser Coast so you can tell what condition your tyres are in:

  • Each tyre has a four-digit age code and cracks are also signs of age. Tyres also have a wear mark indicator within the tread. These can be checked by a tyre fitter or salesperson.
  • Wheel alignment and balancing should be checked every 10,000km or 12 months.
  • Tyre pressure should be checked monthly.
