Radial tyres are softer and offer a more comfortable ride than old cross ply tyres.
At Hi-Q we never take our eyes off what’s important: your safety – and the safety of your passengers.
1. Check the fluid level in the brake fluid container – it should be close to the ‘max’ mark. Low brake fluid level in one of the first indicators that a vehicle’s brake pads are worn out.
2. Be aware of how your brakes feel underfoot. A hard or spongy pedal can be an indication of air in the hydraulic system.
3. If the brake pedal goes down too far, this may be indicative of a brake system problem
4. A red brake-warning light that stays on may indicate an imbalance in the car’s hydraulic system.
5. If the vehicle pulls aside during braking, this could be symptomatic of a brake system problem.
6. If the brake pedal pulsates and/or the vehicle vibrates during braking, this could be symptomatic of a brake system problem.
7. Any kind of noise while braking (e.g. screeching, squeaking or grinding) is indicative of worn and/or damaged brakes.
8. If the brakes drag and the vehicle does not roll freely, this could be symptomatic of a brake system problem.
9. If there is an odour of burnt brakes, this is a highly dangerous situation and may indicate brake failure. Brakes should be replaced immediately.
