- New tires at the back
When getting a new pair of tires, they should first be installed on the rear side. Why? It’s simple; newer tires help in emergency braking, and they have better control on wet surfaces and better handling rather than being rear or front-wheel drive.
- Wear and tear
Summer and going on vacations go without saying, knowing that tires go through rugged terrains and other surfaces, and they can take quite the beating. Keep checking your tire’s conditions to ensure they are not worn out. Don’t ignore this because if you miss it, it will reduce the tire’s ability to grip the road, which can be dangerous, and safety is your priority to keep you and your family safe.
- Store your tires
Even when your car is not in use, the tires will still wear out; Due to the sheer weight of the vehicle, it can start disturbing the tire’s surface. When storing tires, keep these things in mind; store them away from any heat source, never stack them on each other for extended periods, and keep them away from any material that can infiltrate the tire.
- Replace the Worn Out Tyre
Tires are not something that will last a lifetime. No matter how reliable they can be. Tires have an expiration date, as all things do. Once past the date, they mainly weaken before that. Once they wear out to a certain extent, the solution is simple: to replace them with new ones.
In weather with extreme heat, like in the Middle East, tires usually exhaust much more quickly. Feel free to consult a professional and ask them for advice on when it’s the right time to replace them.

Tire valves need to be replaced regularly and can help increase tire life and maintain sufficient air pressure.
