Guide on when to replace your tires

Every tire has a Tread Wear Indicator (TWI), which forms a triangle located on the sidewall of the tire. TWI is an indicator of tire wear and is also a benchmark for you to check if your tire is worn out. Tires should be changed immediately when the tire tread has surpassed the indicators.

Warning: Worn out tires compromises the handling and braking distance tremendously.

Tire Maintenance

Keep a lookout for the physical signs stated below, even if the tires have not worn out yet.

Consult your nearest tire dealer if there are any signs of physical damage or deformity on your tires.

Air Pressure

The tire's air pressure standard for each vehicle is set by the vehicle manufacturer. This can be found in various areas of your vehicle, such as at the end of the driver's door, at the bottom of the door, or in the storage box found at the door of the vehicle.

Low air pressure can cause damage to the sidewall, thus decreasing the load carrying capacity, and also consume more fuel. The tire pressure should be checked regularly, at least once every month.

Note: Allow the tires to cool down after driving before checking the air pressure in order to obtain a more accurate reading.

Tire Maintenance

4-Tire rotation

Can be done by diagonal, horizontal or vertical rotation

Tire Maintenance

Diagonal

Diagonal rotation is done by swapping the front left tire to right rear and front right tire with the rear left.

Tire Maintenance

Horizontal

Horizontal rotation is done by exchanging the front right wheel with the left front wheel. Likewise for the rear wheels, rear right tire will be exchanged with the left rear tire. This method is normally used for non-directional tires.

Tire Maintenance

Vertical

Vertical rotation is done by swapping the front right tire with the back right tire, and the front left tire with the back left tire. This method is normally used for directional tread pattern tires.

5-Tire rotation (with spare tire)

5 tire rotation relatively similar to the 4 tire diagonal, except that the spare tire will also be rotated.

The spare tire is to be mounted on the left rear, left rear tire moved to the front left. The left front tire will be moved to right back and right back to be moved to the front right. Lastly, the right front tire will be used as the spare tire. This method of rotation is normally used for 4-wheel and all-wheel drive vehicles.
