Understand your tire

Looking after your tires

If you practice good tire care, your Fulda tires will keep on performing until the day you replace them.

Tires wear out gradually, so it’s not always easy to know if yours have become worn beyond safe use. Paying attention to these factors, along with regular inspection and maintenance helps you monitor tire wear and spot damage before it becomes a problem.

If you experience difficulty turning, braking, or handling on wet roads, or if you feel excessive vibration, talk to your dealer. It might be a good time for a rotation, balancing, or alignment, or you might need a replacement set.

You can do some tire maintenance yourself, but it’s important to know when to leave things to a professional. You’ll find helpful tire care advice below.

Make pressure checks a regular habit: Maintaining correct tire pressure is essential to getting the best performance from your tyres. In this section, we explain why correct pressure enhances safer driving and helps your tires last longer.

Rotate your tyres: Rotating your tires every 10,000 to 12,000 km (or every six months) helps ensure even wear. Here we explain what you need to do.


Inspect your treads often: Stay on top of tire health by carrying out regular checks of tread wear patterns. In this section, we talk you through what some of the wear patterns mean, and help you determine if it’s time to call a professional.
