Automotive tyres are the only point of contact between the car and the road. However, these strips of rubber are often disregarded and taken for granted. As the saying goes "Power is nothing without control", car tyres are vital in keeping the car in rein.

Tyres are the only point of contact between the car and the road, and play a vital role in keeping the car in control

As with other components of the car, tyres require regular maintenance and upkeep to perform well. Motorists need to keep in check the amount or depth of thread left on the tyre, which will directly affect traction. 

Air pressure is a constant vital factor, which construes to the stability of the car and the safety of its passengers. Tyres that are under or over inflated will also increase rolling resistance, thereby affecting the fuel efficiency and running costs of the car, which includes wear on the engine and transmission. 

Beside regular maintenance, tyres are also vulnerable to debris on the tarmac, which may penetrate through the tyre’s outer wall and cause a puncture. In more serious cases, the tyre loses internal air pressure, which leads to a flat tyre.
Motorists are advised against driving with a flat tyre, as it deteriorates the stability of the car and compromises on the safety of the car. On top of safety concerns, driving with a flat tyre will cause damages to the car, such as the bumper and rims.

Most of us have experienced a tyre puncture before, and we are familiar with the aggravating hassle of meeting with one. Imagine the disruption a tyre puncture will cause, especially when you are tight with time.

Flat tyres are labourious and time consuming to replace

Having to replace the blown tyre will also require strenuous manual labour, or cost valuable time in the case where a recovery service is needed. 

And above all the prior, stationary vehicles have posed a great danger to the vehicle, and its passengers on the road.
