Due to their circular design, tyres should have even wear on contact areas. However, in reality, irregular tyre wear is common.
Uneven wear shortens tread life and can cause abnormal shaking in the vehicle. Causes of irregular wear include driving style, poorly serviced vehicle, incorrect air pressure and lax tyre rotation among others.
Even wear on all tyres eliminates the need for tyre rotation. However, when irregular wear is detected, tyres must immediately be rotated. To prevent such uneven wear in advance, switching the location of tyres is recommended every 10,000km.
- Prevents irregular wear and extends tyre life
- Allows easy detection of irregular wear due to vehicle misalignment
- Enables easy repair of flat tyres
