Have you check your tyre recently?

I had a punctured tyre recently but just changed it with the spare tyre as I was in a hurry to go to work. I managed to visit the tyre service shop last Saturday to repair the punctured tyre. I decided to interchange my front tyre with the rear tyre as to maximize the tyre performance.

If you decided to interchange the wheel, the wheel must need tyre balancing as well as wheel alignment. When all the process is met, the mechanic will check whether any side of the wheel wear or tear badly (makan tayar). If any side of the wheel found having bad wear, some adjustment is done to offset the wear. Nowadays, it will take a short time performing that process as compared previously. They will use some string and water hose filled with water for the alignment process. All the process now is computerized and easy as what is needed a good mechanic to operate it.

This is a tip of the day to all new drivers.
