What Tyres Do

Your tyres are essential for safe driving; they are the only link between your vehicle and the road – a critical contact area no bigger than the palm of your hand.

Tyres have 4 vital functions:

  • Provide grip for breaking and acceleration.
  • Maintain steering and directional control.
  • Support the weight of the vehicle.
  • Act as a shock absorber for vibrations from the road.

Don’t take your tyres for granted – for tips on how to look after them drop into your local dealer.
