Finding the tread depth Indicator

Posted on July 20, 2014 at 7:23 pm

You don’t have to be an expert to know when your tyres need changing; you just need to know where to locate the tread depth indicator. There are usually indicators in the grooves of a tyre, and it’s basically a small square positioned deeper than the groves, then over time, when the groves are at the same level (depth) as the indicator, you’ll know that they desperately need changing.

Depending on the tyre, the indicator can be hard to find, and in the event that you’re unable to see the indicator, make sure you get them checked by a qualified tyre technician. A tread depth gauge can also help you determine the wear too, and these can be easily attached to your car keys. It’s just a small device that measures the amount of grip left on your tyres and you can find them at pretty much any garage or car part retailer.

The Extreme Wrangler MT/R

Posted on July 9, 2014 at 2:43 pm

The Goodyear Wrangler MT/R is one of the most aggressive tyres on the market, offering an extreme level of grip. It’s no wonder why this tyre is the factory fitted tyre for the Land Rover Defender L316 and the Land Rover Defender L316.

It is an all season, off road tyre that can provide tremendous traction in the wet, while it can even grip in thick, deep mud. There is a reduced chance of a puncture, thanks to the Dura-wall Technology, which provides extra reinforcement to the tyre sidewalls.

Any luxury SUV can benefit from this tyre on an off-road adventure, and that’s why it’s made its name as on of the most aggressive SIV tyres you can find. Large bumps, mud patches and loose soil are no longer an issue when you have these tyres but they certainly don’t come at a cheap price.
