Maintaining your tyres

To increase the performance of tyres, it is important that your winter tyres and summer tyres are properly stored when changing season. A practical solution: entrust them with your dealer. Many dealers or tyre fitting centres offer this service.

Rubber doesn't age well: it hardens and cracks if it is not conserved properly. To store your tyres properly between two winters or two summers, you need two follow certain rules.

  • Place them in a well-ventilated, dry and warm (10 to 25°C) place, away from direct sunlight and the weather.
  • Ensure they are kept well away from chemical substances, solvents or hydrocarbons which may damage the rubber.
