Summer is a time for having fun and going on holiday; when the weather is on our side it’s the perfect time to give your pride and joy the much needed care and attention. This ensures you get peoples head turning as you drive past.
The summer is known for warm weather and heat; but as you in the UK the weather is so unpredictable so you must prepare for all eventualities. It may surprise you that your anti-freeze also acts as a coolant in the summer months hence why it is just as important for you to keep your coolant level topped up to prevent the vehicle from overheating (Especially if you are taking a trip to the safari park over the summer).
Remember prior to your journey to make the relevant checks to your vehicle; check your tyres, engine oil, coolant levels, screen wash. All are vitally important for varying weather conditions.
The tyres pressure is more important than you think; over inflated and under inflated tyres can both have adverse effects on your vehicle. Under inflated tyres is one of the leading causes of tyre failure. If tyre pressures are too low, too much of the tyres surface area touches the road, which increases friction. Increased friction can cause the tyres to overheat, which can lead to premature wear, tread separation and blowouts.
When overinflated, your tyres round out on the tread section, causing the centre to wear significantly faster than the outer edges. Your tyres might only last half the life they normally would.
Over inflation can cause loss of traction. Even in normal conditions, you are more susceptible to losing traction, spinning out or crashing. This is especially noticeable in winter weather. Over inflation creates a harsher ride. Over inflated tyres provide a bumpier ride, so you will feel every dip in the road.
