How to safely run in your new tyres

Fri, 09/27/2013 - 12:31 -- Steve Nacci

You might be surprised to learn that driving on brand new tyres needs a little care and consideration.

Brand new tyres have a number of tiny vent holes on the surface as a result of the moulding process – new tyres are also incredibly smooth.

To remove these holes and prepare the smooth surface for day-to-day driving, we recommend that new tyres be run in for the first 150 to 200 miles.

Running in simply means driving at medium speeds on dry roads, whilst trying to avoid sharp cornering and hard braking.
