What should I do if my tyres are damaged?
The first thing you need to do if you're ever driving and suspect there's a problem with your tyres is to pull over when it is safe to do so. Also, ensure that you are parked safely out of harm (especially when on a freeway).
Next, you can inspect your tyres for signs of damage. During this inspection, look out for:
Puncture or objects such as nails imbedded in your tyres.
Crack, bulges or lacerations
Signs of uneven wear (your tyre tread should wear evenly, if not, your tyre may be over or under-inflated, or incorrectly aligned)
Shallow tread (1.5mm is the absolute minimum for roadworthy tyres - learn more about tyre tread here)
If your tyres present any signs of failure mentioned above, they need temporary replacement until the tyre is fixed, or permanent replacing if repairs aren't possible.
If only one tyre is damaged, you can replace it with your spare. If more than one tyre needs replacing, you can call us at Doube D Tyres for emergency tyre repair in Melbourne. You can also call us for assistance if you don't feel confident conducting a tyre inspection,
