Tyres can become damaged without the driver’s knowledge. Most common damages are punctures, cuts, impacts, cracks, bulges and irregular wear.
If you do discover or suspect damage, have the tyre inspected without delay by a tyre service professional.
If you have to drive over an obstacle (e.g. curbstone), approach it slowly – as close to the perpendicular as possible. Check your tyres regularly for exterior damage such as cuts, cracks or bulges.
