Tyre Care

It is essential that your tyres are regularly looked after.

The following tips can help prolong the life of your tyres and reduce any associated costs.

Tyre Pressure

Check your tyre pressure regularly. Incorrect tyre pressure can result in higher wear and tear. It is important to check your tyre pressure every month to prevent damage.

Wheel Alignment

Maintain wheel alignment to enable the tyres to wear evenly.

Tyre Tread Depth

Tread depth has an important influence on the safety of your vehicle. As the tyre’s tread depth wears down, its ability to grip the road is reduced, impacting your breaking distance and safety. Audi recommends replacing your tyres at a minimum tread depth of 3mm. The legal minimum tyre tread depth is 1.6mm. Check your tyres regularly to ensure it is not below the minimum depth.

Tyre Rotation

Rotate tyre positions if any irregular wear is found

Kerbs and Potholes

Steer clear of objects that may damage your tyres such as kerbs and potholes.

Damage

Check your tyres frequently for any damages such as cuts, bulges, uneven wear and embedded objects.

Cleanliness

Keep your tyres clean by avoiding contact with oil, grease and fuel.

Get Your Tyres Balanced

Get your tyres balanced whenever you change them to extend their life.

EU Tyre Label

All tyres, produced from July 1st 2012 and on sale from November 1st 2012, are required to carry the EU Tyre Label.

Fuel Efficiency
Tyres contribute up to 20% of the overall fuel consumption for a car. The less resistance your tyres endure, the less energy will be consumed meaning you will save CO2.. Class A tyres deliver the best fuel efficiency. The difference between class A and G is up to 0.7 litres at 100km/h.

Wet Grip
Wet grip affects your tyre’s breaking distance on a wet road surface. Better wet grip results in shorter braking distance. The difference between class A tyres and class F tyres stopping distance is up to 18 metres.

Noise Levels
The external noise made by the tyre, measured in decibels, contributes to sound pollution.

The black sound waves illustrated on the label show how loud/quiet a tyre is. The more sound waves, the louder the tyres.
