Commercial vehicles are everywhere in our city. They are the lifeblood of many businesses, so it's paramount they stay on the road.
Do you operate a fleet of commercial vehicles? Perhaps you own a food truck or van? When it comes to saving money on cars and trucks, tyres are often overlooked because we all know they are one of the biggest cash outlays when it comes to vehicle maintenance.
But, not only will a good set of tyres save you money, they’ll also play a key role in on-road safety. Safety for your staff, you and other motorists sharing the road.
A safe tyre is a tyre with plenty of tread and inflated to its correct pressures. Tyre pressures are usually found on the sidewall of the tyre or your vehicle’s placard. More information on tyre pressures can be found here. Over and under-inflated tyres can wear prematurely and cause issues early on after being purchased.
A few things to consider when purchasing tyres for your commercial vehicle:
- Clearance (commercial tyres can be larger than passenger tyres)
- The types of road surfaces your vehicle mostly drives on
- The types of distances your vehicle drives
- Cheaper does not mean saving money, look for quality
- Regular tyre rotations
There are a number of ways to get the most km from a set of new tyres but it really comes down to knowing your intended purpose from the very start. With many reasonable options available for most makes and models, it's easy to get lost in deciding on the right tyre for your vehicle.
