How To Keep Your Cheap Auckland Tyres Looking Brand New

Thursday, April 25, 2019

We all appreciate a bargain, and there’s no feeling better than being able to get cheap tyres from Auckland’s Drury Tires instead of having to purchase overpriced or new ones. If you’ve opted for used tyres, they’re just as safe and trustworthy as new ones and are easier on the pocket. If you’d rather nobody knows that they aren’t new, all you need to do is make sure that you maintain them to keep them looking as good as the day you purchased them. Here’s how you can do that.

1) Don’t Wait To Clean Them

Driven through freshly mown grass or mud? The worst thing you can do is to wait until the dirt has dried to clean your tyres. Hose them down the moment you can, and you won’t have to deal with caked on dirt that needs to be scrubbed off. Don’t forget to aim the hose under your wheel arch to remove debris that might be out of sight.

2) Choose The Right Cleaners

There’s no need to invest in harsh chemical cleaners to keep your tyres looking good. If you wash major dirt off them as soon as it occurs, cleaning them will only require a solution of dishwashing liquid mixed with water and gentle brushing. You’ll need to do this every other week. Make sure to rinse them off thoroughly after cleaning.

3) Dry And Shine Them Afterwards

After you’ve used a chamois or microfibre cloth to dry off your tyres, you might want to apply a tyre shine product that keeps your tyres black. If you do, make sure that you follow the instructions.

What Happens If You Don’t Maintain Your Tyres?

If you’ve neglected your tyres for a while, they might develop a bloom, which is brown rubber discolouration on the surface caused by built-up oil, sand and dust penetrating their upper levels. It won’t reduce the lifespan of your tyres by much, but it will make them look older much faster. It’s easier to maintain them regularly and prevent this from happening in the first place. As long as your cheap tyres Auckland are from a reputable dealer like Drury Tyres you’ll be working with quality ones.
