Bald Tyres

Bald Tyres

What is bald tyre?

It is always recommended that your tyre’s tread must not be less than 1/16th of the inch. However, if your tread reaches less than this then your tyre is said to be worn down. You’re having a bald tyre. And, if your vehicle is having bald tyre, you need to purchase new set of tyres to have a safe and comfortable journey.

Why are bald tyres dangerous?

In the rainy season, the grooves of the tyre help to keep the channel water away so that sufficient contact can be maintained with the road. This helps in controlling your vehicle. While on the other hand, bald tyres don’t have sufficient grooves due to which the driver may face difficulty in stopping / controlling their vehicles.

Even in the dry surface, bald tyres are more prone to failure as compared to the normal tyre. Bald tyres are thinner than the normal tyres due to which bald tyres are always under the risk of getting punctured.

Bald tyres are easily affected by stones, cracks, bricks, pins, and unmaintained roads which increases the chances of a sudden blow, while compromising with your safety and security.

When to change your tyres?

If you are wondering when to change your vehicle’s tyre, it’s always recommended to change them before they lead to a big collision/ loss of life.

If you find your tyres grooves rugged/ worn out, you need to change them up and prevent the risk of getting punctured/ collision in your journey.

Don’t postpone something as far as the safety is concerned.
