Hankook Tyres are one of the world’s largest and fastest growing tyre manufacturer for radial tires for passenger cars, light trucks (SUVs, RVs, and etc.), trucks, and buses. Hankook Tyres uses a tyre labeling system to provide useful purchase information for consumers who buy new tyres. Through such a labeling system, consumers will be able to personally check the excellent performance of Hankook Tyres
Regulations require tyre manufacturers to declare fuel efficiency, wet grip rating and external rolling noise performance for C1, C2 and C3 tires (i.e. tires mainly fitted on passenger cars, and on light and heavy duty vehicles). Click here to read more about EU Tyre Regulations
When it comes to vehicle wear and tear, your car tyres are in a league of their own. A properly-fitted tyre with ample tread depth is essential to your safety whenever you or your family make a journey. So making sure your tyres are inflated to the correct pressure, and are not over-worn is a potentially life-saving check for any driver.
How do I know if my tyres need replacing?
The law in the Ireland states that your tyres must have a minimum of 1.6mm tread across 75% of the wheel surface. Driving your car with tread worn beyond this limit is an offence, and could land you with a nasty fine (2,500 per tyre!). But more importantly, your safety is potentially at risk if your tyres don’t meet this requirement.
You can buy a simple tread gauge from most forecourts, so we strongly advise that you keep one handy, and make checks on a regular basis.
The law also states that your car tyres should be of a certain size and type for the car you are driving. This isn’t a major cause for concern for most drivers who have their tyres supplied and fitted by a reputable garage or Baldoyle Auto Centre Ltd
You should also know that the law forbids having two separate types of tyre on either side of your axle. If in doubt, ask your us to check that your car conforms to legal standards.
How do I replace my tyres?
Despite the legal limit being 1.6mm, once the tread on your tyres dips below 3mm, you may begin to experience longer braking distances. So we always advise replacing tyres sooner rather than later, if your budget allows.
Generally speaking, it’s not possible to change the tyre on your own, so we would always recommend finding an honest and knowledgeable garage to do the work for you.
Baldoyle Auto Centre are independent, offering a wealth of local knowledge, with a common customer service ethic you can depend on. We’ll recommend the perfect tyres to match your car – and your budget – and fit them for you
Tips for Tyre Replacement
It is the best to replace two tyres on one axle at the same time.
Only replacement of one tyre of two on the same axle usually causes to unbalance the vehicle.
