Shock Absorbers

When shock absorbers fail, the repercussions extend beyond just the suspension system. One significant effect is the detrimental impact on tyre condition and performance. As shock absorbers lose their ability to dampen vibrations and maintain stability, tyres are subjected to increased wear and tear, particularly at the edges.

The development of lumps on the edges of tires is a common issue resulting from failed shock absorbers. Without proper shock absorption, tyres experience excessive bouncing up and down, especially during highway driving at higher speeds. This repetitive motion leads to uneven wear patterns, causing lumps to form along the tire edges over time.

Not only does this irregular tyre wear affect performance, but it also results in increased noise levels. As tyres bounce excessively due to failed shock absorbers, they generate noticeable vibrations and disturbances, contributing to a noisy driving experience. These vibrations can resonate through the vehicle, causing discomfort for passengers and indicating a compromised suspension system.

Addressing failed shock absorbers promptly is crucial to prevent further damage to tyres and ensure a quieter, smoother ride. By replacing worn-out shock absorbers, you not only restore stability and control but also protect your tires from premature wear and excessive noise.
