Top Tips

  • Check your tyres regularly to make sure there is plenty of tread. The minimum legal depth is 1.5mm but the more tread you have the better grip and the safer you will be.
    Advantage recommends that you replace your tyres when the tread depth reaches 3mm.
  • Tyres below the 3mm recommendation are worn by up to 78% and will greatly affect the overall braking and cornering performance of your vehicle. You can use a tyre tread depth checker/gauge or go to your local Advantage and get our team to check it for you.
  • Regular wheel alignments will improve fuel economy and are essential for even tyre wear, giving your tyres a longer life.
  • Wheel alignments should be done once a year or every 12,000km.
  • For better fuel economy always choose the best quality engine oil suitable for your vehicle.
  • The less friction you have between the parts in your engine, the more efficiently the parts can work and move – and the less fuel you will burn.
  • Advantage stocks Shell Helix Ultra with Pureplus Technology which can help you get up to 3% better fuel economy.*
