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.
