Underinflation also wears out the treads and strains the belts holding the tires together.

Overinflated tires are more prone to punctures because the tires cannot absorb impact from road debris.

Low Tread Depth

Tire treads give the tires a better grip and channel water and debris away. To test your tire treads’ depth, you insert a coin on the treads’ center groove. At logistics repairs in Newcastle, you can have the tread depth checked and get advice on the best tires.

Squealing Breaks

You need to have your brake pads changed regularly to avoid the squealing sounds from the brakes. The squealing sounds are not only annoying to the truck’s driver but every other driver near the squealing vehicle.
