FAQs

At tyremart we've spent more time around tyres than most people should. But one thing we love even more than tyres is helping people find the right tyres for their vehicle. That's why we created tyremart.ng and while you may never love tyres as much as we do, you can confidently drive away knowing that what you got was exactly what you needed.

Please remember, Plus Sizing must be taken with proper care. When replacing tyres with optional size designations, be sure to check vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations (found in owner’s manual or on door sticker). Interchangeability is not always possible because of difference in load ratings, tyre dimensions, wheel well clearance and rim size.

Contact a participating tyre retailer that is trained to assist you with plus sizing.

Avoid used tyres - you can never know what hazards and abuse a previously owned tyre has suffered. Internal damage can lead to dangerous tyre failure.

It is recommended that the replacement tyre size speed rating be equal to the O.E. tyre size speed rating. If a lower speed rated tyre is selected, then the vehicle top speed becomes limited to that of the lower speed rating selected. The customer must be informed of the new speed restriction.

Tyre Maintenace

A vehicle is said to be properly aligned when all suspension and steering components are sound and when the tyre and wheel assemblies are running straight and true. Proper alignment is necessary for even tread wear and precise steering. Uneven front or rear tyre wear, or changes in your vehicle's handling or steering response (i.e. pulling to one side) can indicate misalignment. Many vehicles today are equipped with rear suspensions that can be adjusted for alignment. Your vehicle many need a 'front-end' alignment or a 'four-wheel' alignment, depending on the symptoms you are experiencing. The moderate cost of having your vehicle aligned can more than pay for itself in tyre mileage, performance and comfort.

For best all-around performance, the same type tyre should be used on all four-wheel positions. Tyres of different size designations, constructions, and stages of wear may affect vehicle handling and stability. NOTE: Some vehicles are intentionally fitted with different size tyres on front and rear.

For four-wheel drive vehicles, if no instructions for tyre mixing appear in the vehicle owner’s manual, adhere to the following guidelines:

Do not mix sizes. All four tyres must be branded with the same tyre size.

Do not mix radial and bias-ply tyres. All four must be either radial or bias-ply.

Be sure that the outside circumference of all four tyres is within 1” of each other.

Do not mix tread patterns, such as all-terrain and all-season.

Properly maintained tyres can help give you a more comfortable ride and a longer tread life. So:

Check your tyre pressure monthly with a tyre pressure gauge (and make sure the tyres are cold—at least 3 hours after driving).

Check your tyres frequently for any cuts, snags, punctures, any other injury, or irregular tyre wear.

At the first sign of irregular treadwear, have your alignment checked.

Make sure the tyres are balanced when they are mounted on the wheels.

Rotate your tyres following the schedule in your vehicle owners manual or as required by the tyre manufacturer’s warranty.

Many factors can affect the tread life of your tyres, such as:

  • Tyre Type
  • Tread compounds
  • Construction features
  • Vehicle application
  • Tyre maintenance
  • Geographic conditions
  • Atmospheric conditions
  • Driving habits
  • And more

That’s why exact mileage is impossible to predict. Take special care when braking, accelerating, cornering, etc., to help increase the life of the tyre.

Never exceed the load-carrying limits or maximum vehicle axle load limit as shown on the vehicle tire placard. Overloading builds up excessive heat in the tire and could lead to failure

Yes. Here are several tips to help increase the life of your tyres:

Don’t speed. High speeds can generate excessive heat, which can increase the rate of tyre wear. Drive the safe, legal speed limit.

Avoid fast turns on curves and around corners.

Avoid fast starts and panic stops.

Don’t ride on the edge of the pavement or drive over curbs, potholes, or other obstructions.

Tyremart recommends replacing all four tyres at the same time, however if replacing only two new tyres, be sure that the new tyres are the same size & tyre type as the current tyres and that the dealer always installs the new tyres on the rear axle of the vehicle.

Why Put the 2 New tyres on the Rear Axle?

The New tyres will provide better wet grip than your half-worn tyres.

It will help reduce the potential for the vehicle to oversteer and lose stability in wet conditions
