Tyre Air Pressure
Maintaining the correct air pressure in your tyres helps the economy of your car’s driving. Tyres wear longer, fuel consumption is reduced and overall car handling improves. It is therefore important to check air pressure once per month when you fill up at the petrol station. You can find the recommended air pressure rating in your car’s manual, or sometimes a tyre placard on your car door edge. If you are not sure then check with Cassar Automotive at your next visit.
Tyre Rotation and Balance
Tyre rotation and balance is essential for proper maintenance of your tyres to ensure even tyre wear. Recommended checks of your tyres for rotation is every 10,000 kms or every 6 months, and can extend the life of your tyres.
Essential for the life of tyres as well as safe and predictable handling. Car wheel alignments are adjustments of your car’s suspension and can help prevent suspension problems. A professional wheel alignment requires analysis and adjustment of 4 key areas, namely the angle of steering axis, inward or outward tilt, toe in or toe out, and the ride height. Irregular tyre wear can indicate misalignment in these areas. We recommend checks for wheel alignments should be done every 10,000 kms or every 6 months.
Tyre Puncture Repairs
A tyre repair should be performed as soon as possible by a repairer and in accordance with Australian Standards. The tyre must be removed from the rim and the overall condition inspected completely before repairing. Punctures must be sealed internally and the hole must be filled. The legal repair limit per tyre is 2 punctures before a tyre must be replaced.
