  • 3. Reasons • Your tyres are the legs of your vehicle and the only thing that touch the ground • Tyres are the organs of the vehicle that moves or take you to your destination
  • 4. REASONS • They are in control of your steering, breaking, acceleration and absorbing all the bumps that the road may throw at you. • They absorb road shocks. This is, the air/nitrogen that acts as springs for the car.
  • 5. How to Check for Fake Tyres
  • 6. CHECKING FOR FAKE TYRES…………. • It is important that you pick tyres that are well suited for the conditions that you most regularly drive in. Many people tend to choose budget tyres for the cost saving factor, however this can be false economy, as cheap tyres tend to go bald quicker, can increase fuel consumption and may not grip the road as well. • Not all tyres are created equal, so it pays to make sure that the tyres you are looking to buy match your requirements. If you do a lot of motorway driving then you will want tyres that handle much better at higher speeds, while rural drivers may look for tyres that can easily handle a range of terrain. You are also able to purchase tyres made from a tougher compound making them much longer lasting and with better grip than cheap tyres.
  • 7. CHECKING FOR FAKE TYRES…………. • According to the Standard Organisation of Nigeria, it is very pertinent for all drivers to always check for expiry dates of tyres before purchase. This is because most of the tyres that are imported into Nigeria by the Chinese through illegal means are substandard; i.e. they are post-dated to make them appear roadworthy. • Despite this, we can also smartly out- do them doing the following:
  • 8. CHECKING FOR FAKE TYRES…………. • As a rule, examine the tyre well. Check for any incorrectly spelt words or letters first, as bad manufactures usually misspell a letter within a word. • Another simple route is to consider the tyre you are obtaining on the web and take a closer look at pictures of it to check whether they seem to be comparative.
  • 9. CHECKING FOR FAKE TYRES…………. • You can spot an altered manufacture date on a tyre by taking a closer look at the manufacture date. For example, if the manufacture date is "0316" (3rd week of 2016) and you notice that "031" is embossed, while "6" is debossed, just know that the manufacture date has been tampered with. These shady tyre dealers cannot create embossed "FAKE DATES" (at least for now). They can only create debossed dates by stamping. Though, some can go as far as erasing the date completely and writing a new one. • Tyre dates are either embossed or debossed (stamped) by the manufacturer. When the date is embossed, you can use the above method to spot a fake one. However, when the date is debossed (stamped), you can spot a fake date by looking at the last digit in the date. For example if the debossed (stamped) date is "0316", you should take a closer look at "6" to check if it's as clear as the other digits "031". You should also check whether "6" is perfectly aligned (in a straight line) and of the same font size with the other digits "031".
  • 10. EXAMPLE
  • 11. OTHER TIPS • Always and most importantly, go for brands well known for their genuiness. E.g. Michelin, Dunlop, e.t.c. also be sure that their spellings are correct. • Avoid buying tyres whose manufacturing dates are before two years. • Purchase from trustworthy dealers. Sincere ones will allow you re view the tyres before you put them in your vehicle. • NEVER buy USED tyres!
