One of the most common car maintenance you usually need is replacing car tires. In UAE, you should replace car tyres within five years of production. However, this depends on the usage and quality of the tires. Some good quality tire brands like Bridgestone or Michelin last longer than others. Our tyres shop in Dubai deals in all kinds of tire brands and provides free installation with every tire replacement.
How often should you change tyres?
A car testing center might alert you if your tyres are old. They can last up to 50,000 kilometers or five years, whichever comes earlier.
How to know tyre's size and specifications?
You can read it from a sticker on the car body next to the driver’s door or the existing tyres themselves. You must look for tire width, wall height, rim size, and speed rating. You will see it written as 265/70 R16 112S. In this, the tire width is 265, the wall height is 70, and the rim size is 16. Either consult the below diagram or read more here.
Most common reasons for replacing tires:
You may have a flat tire or tire puncture multiple times, so it makes sense to replace tyres instead of continuing to patch them completely.
If you don’t look after your tires condition often, you may have a tyre burst in the middle of your drive. It is an emergency, and you must replace the tyres.
Car registration renewal:
RTA and similar testing centers test your car tyres thoroughly and ensure they are in a good state. Worn-out tires are the most common reasons to fail an inspection test.
Misalignment and poor maintenance:
Suppose your car has other tire-related mechanical issues like wheel alignment or balancing problems. In that case, they can decrease the tires’ lifetime. For this poorly maintained vehicle, tyres will age faster, and you will have to replace them sooner than required.
How do tyres impact car life?
Incorrect or mismatched tyre installation can decrease your car’s fuel efficiency and reduce the overall life. Similarly, tyre rotation can increase their life. Poorly performing tyres can even impact suspensions.
Choosing between different tyre qualities:
Tires come in different qualities, and as UAE has a wide range of cars, it also has an extensive list of tyre brands. Let us assure you that the government approves any tyre you see in the UAE market, and they meet basic quality standards. You can go with high-end brands like Michelin or Pirelli, or you have the choice to go with second-tier brands like Yokohama and Bridgestone. So even if you go with Chinese brands, you might not be making a mistake.
Different types of tyres
As the name suggests, these are specially designed Tyres for ultra-luxury cars. These types of vehicles do not have spare pieces. Run-flat tyres mean you can drive up to 60 to 70 km once you see the tyre symbol on the dashboard. It allows you to keep going and find a tyre shop instead of replacing tyre on the roadside.
Highway terrain or on-road tires:
These tires are designed to drive on highway roads. They are silent, smooth, and comfortable to drive.
All-terrain or off-road tyres:
These tyres are considered suitable for off-road driving or in regions like the outskirts of Dubai, where there’s a vast desert. The all-terrain design makes noise, and its driving is not as comfortable as highway terrain. Still, it helps the vehicle balance and sticks to the ground on rough and soft surfaces like sand.
Mud terrain tyres:
These tyres are best suited for wet surfaces or, as the name suggests, muddy surfaces. People living closer to areas with frequent rains or flash floods rely on this type of tyres.
