Tread and tyre pressure are the two crucial factors in tyre safety. When cornering or braking, tyre tread will help your vehicle to grip the road surface.

Driving on under-inflated tyres will use more fuel, while driving on over-inflated tyres can affect the way your car handles and overall wear.

At Hamilton Automotive we will routinely check your tyres with all of our vehicle services. Our mechanics are experts in assisting you to select the right tyres for your car.

Did you know:

Legally, treads must be at least 1.5mm deep across three quarters of the tread pattern around the entire tyre. However, if you have tread depth indicators in the principal grooves then you must have at least 1.5mm tread depth in these areas.

Wheel Alignments

Wheel Alignments are so important to the handling of your car. They also improve the fuel economy of your vehicle and extend the life of your tyres.

What We Do:

Our highly skilled mechanics at Hamilton Automotive will adjust all four wheels so they are parallel to each other. We do this this using the latest laser technology which produces a sensor zone around the vehicle, highlighting any steering or suspension faults.

The results for you include:

  • Improved Driver Safety

  • Improved Handling

  • Increased Fuel Efficiency

  • Extended Suspension Life

  • Minimized Tyre Wear

  • Improved Steering.

Why We Do It:

Common problems you will encounter when your wheels are out of alignment include:


  • Wheel is difficult to turn

  • Pulls to the left or right

Tyre wear shows signs of:

  • Uneven wear on one side

  • Feathering
