- 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 case of emergency braking, they have better control on wet surfaces, and overall better handling rather than being rear or front wheel drive.
- Wear and tear
Summer and going on vacations goes without saying, knowing that tires go through tough terrains and all kinds of 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 do ignore it, it will reduce the tires ability to grip onto the road which can be dangerous, and safety is your first priority in order 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 car it can start disturbing the tires 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 into the tire.
- Replace the Worn Out Tyre
Tyres are definitely not something which will last a lifetime. No matter how reliable they can be. Tyres have an expiration date like all things do. Once past the date they mostly weaken before that. Once they wear out to a certain extent, the solution is simple, to replace them with new ones.
In weathers with extreme heat like in the Middle East, tyres usually exhaust much quickly. Feel free to consult a professional and ask them some advice of when it’s the right time to replace them.

- Tire valves
The modules of the valve in the tire are made up of rubber and can end up weakening overtime. It is like a primary air seal. Heard of the word Valve before? Yes, you most certainly have. Our hearts have valves and the valves of tyres are just as important as our hearts’ valves. Tyre valves need to be replaced regularly and can help in increasing the life of tires and maintaining sufficient air pressure.
