Description: To protect your alloy wheels and tyres, avoid driving over or scrubbing against kerb edgings or other raised obstructions, because if you drive up on them without necessary care, you run a high risk of reducing the life of your tyre. Mounting the kerb can damage the sidewall of the tyre either invisibly or very visibly. Tyre sidewalls are much thinner than the tyre tread and so are easily damaged. Bulging indicates severe damage to the side wall and this will require the immediate replacement of the tyre as there is a danger of a blow-out occurring at high speed with a damaged tyre, either way the tyre life will be drastically shortened. If the tyre is listed in your owner’s manual, then it is safe to have it fitted.
