Tyre valves are a vital component often overlooked by drivers. Tyre valves maintain tyre pressure and are the outlets for air to be released or added. The tyre pressure depends upon its valves. Therefore, the valves affect the lifespan of tyres.
If there is the accumulation of dirt and grit in the valve, it will affect the performance of your tyres. This is dangerous as the tyres would not be at optimum performance during high speeds. Also, worn valves that do not fit properly will cause under-inflation of tyres. This will cause your tyres to wear out faster.
For safety and good maintenance of tyres, Goh Swee Hin recommends changing tyre valves when the tyres are changed.
