Is It Time To Change Your Bike Tyres?

news, auto news, change your bike tyres, bike, carandbike

A damaged set of tyres is one of the worst things about your bike’s performance. Since the bike’s only contact point to the road is the tyres, frequent trips and journeys can take a toll on them.

Moreover, even the best motorcycle tyres give up and show signs of damage and injuries with time. Bike owners fail to acknowledge that damaged tyres are detrimental to performance and their safety on the road. Let’s look at some of the glaring signs that scream tyre change!

Wear and Tear

One of the ways to know if your bike tyres require changing is by looking at the wear and tear. If you use your bike often and extensively, the wear and tear would be severe.

Wear is one of the most common indicators that your tyre is no longer apt for use. To help you understand this, look for the Tyre Wear Indicator mark on the sidewalls. It is a triangular arrow sign that tells you about the level of wear.

Uneven Tread Wear

Uneven tread wear is one of the last things you want. There might be times when the tyres might not be completely worn out but might still require your attention. The tyre’s shape plays a huge role in determining whether it is apt for future use or not. If you spot squarish wear on your car’s tyres, it indicates uneven tread wear.

Scalping or Cupping of the Front Tyre

Another indicator that you need to watch out for is scalping or cupping of the front tyres. Under this condition, you will see noticeable damage along the tread length. This problem can be dangerous, leading to stability and handling issues. So, if you see that the tyres are scalping from the sides, it’s time to invest in new wheels.

Too Many Cuts and Punctures

If your bike’s tyres have too many punctures or cuts, it is a sign that you need to look for new sets of wheels. It would be best to change such wheels immediately as the damages might make the wheels unfit for future use. Additionally, driving with such tyres will affect the vehicle’s performance and ride quality as well as compromise on safety.

Tyre’s Age

Even if you don’t see any visible damage to your vehicle, it doesn’t mean that the tyres are fit for use. If you want the tyres to be usable for the future, consider the age. Most tyre brands suggest a tyre replacement every five years. The oils in the rubber evaporate, leading the rubber to harden over time.
