WHY ARE TYRES IMPORTANT

Tyres are usually taken for granted, until the road puts them to test. When it comes to safety, tyres are one of the most important components of your vehicle. When rubber meets the road, the contact area is the size of the palm of your hand. This is where breaking, traction, handling, steering and comfort happens.

On such a small area, a failure at high speed could have serious consequences. Taking time to choose your tyre is important. Here are some safety tips on driving safely on wet roads during this rainy season:

1. Always drive with two hands to stay in control.

2. Slow down: Tyres will have better traction and contact with the road.

3. Increase your distance from other cars significantly.

4. Stay vigilant of other drivers and dangers in your surroundings. Anticipate dangerous situations rather than waiting to react to them.

5. Before turning: only brake in a straight line before the turn, and do so gradually. Do not brake during the turn as this can make you slip.

6. While turning: slow down before turning, and maintain a consistent speed throughout the turn.

7. Inspect your tyres monthly: make sure that your tyres have the proper amount of tread and tyre pressure.

8. Choose tyres that offer maximum grip in wet weather.

BRAKING IN RAIN

• Braking distance is increased compared to dry roads. Brake much earlier than you would on dry roads.

• Double the distance between you and the car in front; You will need the extra time to stop safely.
