TYRES & SUSPENSION GEOMETRY

Tyres

Your vehicle needs the perfect combination of wheels, tyres and chassis components. That’s why getting your Jaguar or Land Rover fitted with tyres that have been approved by Jaguar Land Rover is so essential. Although they may look like the tyres you get in independent tyre retailers, they are tested by Jaguar Land Rover in collaboration with the leading tyre manufacturers and come with their own features and benefits – so in reality are very different.

When the area of the tyre that connects with the road is no bigger than an open hand, it is key to make sure that as much power, braking force and driving dynamics are reliably transferred to the wheels as possible. They are also precisely matched with specific chassis components and electronic regulation systems. Comfort, safety and dynamic performance are combined in this way to provide you with the ultimate driving experience.

JAGtechnic & LandSport are always on hand to help you with any queries you may have regarding tyres and with a wide range of Jaguar Land Rover Approved Tyres in stock, and same day access to more stock, we should always be able to cater for your needs.

Tyre Safety

Checking the tread depth of your tyres is very important. Research indicates the most tyres on the road are either under inflated orbelow the legal limit of 1.6mm tread depth. It is recommended that you check your tyres every two weeks or before you make any long journeys. We are on hand to assist you with a tyre health check should you need us to, and we can advise the correct approved tyre for your car if a replacement is required.

We can do this as part of a great value comprehensive replacement package, where we will also see to the environmentally friendly disposal of your old tyre. For further information on your tyres and how to check/change them, please see your vehicle owner’s handbook or speak to our service department.

Tyre Pressure

Tyre pressure can have a serious effect on the way your tyres wear. Regular checks to help ensure tyre pressure is at the right gauge will maintain the life of your tyres for longer. Over inflated tyres can cause heavy wear in the centre of the tyre, whereas under inflated tyres will wear the shoulders more. To prevent this, checking the tyre pressure at least twice a month and before all long journeys is recommended. The correct tyre pressure readings can be found on the information sticker on the driver’s door post with the driver’s door open.

Depending on the age and specification of your vehicle, you may also need to reinitialise your Tyre Pressure Warning system. Please check your owner’s handbook on how to reset this device, or speak to the our service department.

Tyre Pressure settings for heavy loads and towing

You will need to increase your tyre pressure when carrying heavy loads on a long journey, or towing a caravan or trailer. You can find the settings for these on the information sticker on the driver’s doorpost. Remember to deflate your tyres back to the normal pressure once you have finished your journey to avoid any unnecessary wear.

Tyre Damage

Most importantly, checking for damage will ensure that your vehicle is safe for the road and will give you the best ride quality. Checking regularly for damage, foreign bodies, any unusual tyre wear and checking the tread depth. Take extra care to check the sidewalls of you tyres and ensure there are not cuts and bulges that could have been a result of pothole of kerb damage. Also keep an eye out for cracks as this is a sign that your tyres are ageing.

Tread Depth

The minimum legal tread depth limit is 1.6mm across the middle 75% of the tyre at any point. Should your tyres wear down to below the 1.6mm mark, indicated in the base of the tyre tread groove, your tyres are illegal.

Jaguar Land Rover recommends that you change your tyres when they reach 78% worn (3mm). Anything below this and the braking and cornering of your vehicle will be affected. The risk of Aquaplaning is also increased when driving on wet roads.

Winter Tyres

When temperatures drop below 7° centigrade, your regular tyres will start to struggle in cold, wet and icy conditions. Winter tyres will significantly improve your braking distance when coping with the cold seasons. These tyres are designed to last much longer than regular tyres do at lower temperatures. Starting from just £700 RRP and with the option to have your regular tyres stored by us for when you need them again when it warms up for just £50, there isn't really a reason not to.

 

Suspension Geometry

Sometimes you may notice that your vehicle may have lost its ride comfort a little, is less economical than before or that it doesn't always drive in a perfectly straight line, these are signs that the wheel alignment on your vehicle is out. This can be caused by driving over potholes, speed bumps or kerbs and can even cause premature tyre wear which can cost you.

To make sure your wheels are perfectly aligned to keep your vehicle running how it was intended to, speak to us about having your steering and suspension geometry checked. Our state-of-the-art geometry alignment system is the best system to perfectly align the wheels on your vehicle. This advanced system uses the latest computer checking equipment and even laser measurement systems to ensure your vehicle drives away with a completely accurate alignment that provides safe a predictable vehicle control, stability, comfort and economy.
