After how many kilometers should you change tires?

It is hard to say clearly because the rate of tire wear depends on many factors. Tread loss speed is most affected by the conditions in which we drive our car and our driving style. For example, a veterinarian using his car mainly in rural areas, where the quality of the roads is usually very poor, and a large part of them are gravel or ordinary wertepy will have to change tires much faster than a commuter using the highway network. Another factor is our driving style. If you start from under the lights with a screech of tires and entering a corner you feel the car falling into a slight skid, you will quickly “roll” your tires. Tire replacement should really be cyclical.

What are the other causes of tread wear?

The biggest culprit is usually the incorrect suspension geometry. If our car struggles with the problem of unbalanced or misaligned wheels, it will significantly affect the life of the tires. Another very common reason is poorly selected air pressure. Too high tire pressure means that the tire deforms less, which causes the tread center to wear out much faster. If the pressure is too low, the tire sticks to the ground more, which causes abrasion of the side parts of the tire and significantly increases rolling resistance. This in turn translates into greater friction and causes a higher temperature, due to which the rubber loses its mechanical properties faster.

When should we change tires?

According to Polish law, the tread thickness must be at least 1.6mm. However, experts agree that this value is far too low. According to tests carried out by the German organization ADAC, the minimum safe thickness is 3 millimeters (for winter tires this value is 4 mm). It is also worth remembering the year of tire production. It is assumed that it should retain its properties for about 10 years, but practice shows that it is better to change them every 5 – 6 years. We are sure then that the tire is fully functional and will not disappoint us at the most unexpected times.

How much does tire replacement cost?

Tire replacement is a must because of our climate, which drivers and car owners face twice a year. More and more people are choosing universal all-season tires, but the fact is that they are not suitable for long distances or driving on mountain roads. Thus, 90% of drivers still change tires every season.

Every season there are also different rates associated with changing tires, mainly due to inflation and rising labor costs. Thus, changing tires from season to season seems to be becoming more expensive.

Vulcanization – responsibility and experience

Vulcanization is a department of our website that works completely separately. Specializes in tire substitution, tire quality control, balancing and wheel alignment as well as inspection and wheel alignment.

The work of the vulcanizer would seem relatively simple, nothing more wrong, he is responsible for:

  • checking the technical condition of tires and informing the customer about the technical condition,
  • proper assembly and disassembly of the tire,
  • checking the technical condition of the rims,
  • balancing the entire wheel,
  • Tighten the screws properly using a torque wrench.

The responsibility that rests on the vulcanizer specialist results from your safety. Our service makes every effort to ensure that the work is done professionally.

How much is tire replacement? We can confidently say that the cost of replacing tires on our website is really very competitive.

Professional equipment and experienced crew

What characterizes us as a car service and vulcanizer is professional equipment. We are talking about both devices and tools. Wheel geometry is set on professional optical and 3D devices.

Vulcanization is carried out using an appropriate balancer and calibrated torque wrenches. The crew are experienced service technicians who can reliably and reliably approach their duties.
