With the festive season upon us, many would already be planning their much anticipated “Balik Kampung” trips. However, the erratic weather conditions that we’ve been experiencing lately, with heavy rain and flash floods expected to continue in many parts of Peninsular Malaysia is a reminder for us to ensure that our vehicles are in the best of conditions.
Under such unpredictable driving conditions, it is important for motorists to ensure that their tyres; which are actually the most important safety features on their vehicles, are in optimal condition as they ensure the safety of the motorists’ loved ones.
So, it is important to make it a habit to inspect your tyres regularly and keep an eye on the tread wear. The common mistake made by most drivers is that many assumed that as long as the tread has not worn down to the level of the indicators, the tyre is still safe.
While a tyre might still be within legal limits, braking performance however is significantly compromised once the tread depth drops below 40 percent (about 3 mm). In fact, braking performance will begin to taper off once the tread depth drops below 60 percent.
So, if you find the tyres of your vehicles to be in critical shape, and realise that it is time for you to replace them, there is a good reason to head over to your nearest MICHELIN outlet this Raya.
With a wide range of tyres on offer, MICHELIN offers tyre solutions for your budget and your vehicle type.
