Lotus Elan Tyre replacement
When do Lotus Elan tyres need to be replacement?
The tyres on your Lotus Elan are the only contact patch you have with the road.
Having worn out or damaged tyres can severely affect the handling and stopping power of your Lotus Elan.
Having high-quality tyres that are in good condition will ensure your vehicle is in the safest condition possible.
Tyre replacement can cost $80 to $800+ depending on tyre size and tyre brand selected.
Most tyres have tyre wear indicators built into the tread. When the tyre tread wears down to the same level as the wear indicators then it's time to replace the tyre/s.
If the tyre continues to be allowed to wear past the wear indicator depth the tyre will be deemed illegal, due to the reduced grip that occurs from a worn tyre.
Driving with illegal tread on tyres is extremely dangerous and increases the risk of an accident, it can also incur a defect infringement notice, the vehicle can be forced off the road and the vehicle's insurance could be void.
It's a good idea to maintain Lotus Elan tyres by checking the air pressure and getting regular wheel alignments and suspension checks.
