Wheel Safety – Maintaining your Car

The wheels of your car might seem like a small part, but really, they are one of the most integral parts of the car in terms of safety. A wheel that is faulty in some way can be a real safety hazard, causing your car to be a danger to you and any passengers you might have inside your vehicle. You will need to maintain your wheels to a certain standard for your car to be roadworthy – the tread will need to be a certain thickness in order for your car to be allowed on the roads.

If you notice anything out of the ordinary with your wheels, you need to get this checked immediately. It might be that something simple can be replaced, such as a wheel bearing. It might also signal the end of your tyre’s life cycle, so the whole of the tyre might need to be replaced. Listen out for unusual noises and try to stay aware of the way in which the car is handling.
