A "cheap tyre” is going to kill you, here is why good tyres costs more

I don’t know about you, but tyres are a fascinating subject to me. I spend hours researching on what sort of tyre should I go for next. Full-on performance rubber? Or maybe I should give my back and ears a break and opt for a more comfortable option.One thing is for sure, I will be splashing my cash for one from a manufacturer of repute. And thankfully I’m not alone on that opinion. The responses from our dear fans and readers on WapCar Forum topic of cheap vs premium tyres were very

When was the last time you checked your tyre pressure?

I know I haven’t checked mine in a while, to be fair. I also can’t remember the last time I pumped air into my tyres, let alone checking the tyre pressure.It wasn’t until my colleague Adrian pointed out that the ride of my car felt odd, and recommended that I checked my tyre pressure just to be sure.I swung by a nearby petrol station to get my tyre pressure checked, and yes, all four of my tyres had really low pressure, one of them as low as 23 PSI. Yup, 23

Have you ever wondered what Bibendum on your tyre wall is pointing at?

How do you check your tyre wear? Universally, we are taught to hold a coin within the grove of the tyre to check the depth of the treads.It took quite a bit of digging before I found the Malaysian coin version of the test.If all the alphabets of the words Bank Negara Malaysia on your 10 cent coin is on show when you hold the coin to the tread, it means it’s time to change your tyres.But did you not know that there is an even better fool proof test you can carry out without the use of coins

Why is my tyre shop trying to sell me nitrogen gas inflation?

You might have come across this scenario while sending your car to your neighbourhood tyre shop – after the job is done, whatever it may be, the tyre shop will try to upsell you nitrogen gas inflation for your tyres.
