yeah, that's the good habit!! we should check our tyre every 5000km runs. besides, i think it is very important to choose suitable tyre for our car!! because it is safer for us as driver. everyone has different driving style, so of course not everyone suits the same tyre lor

Tyre is not so important to me, as long as can bring you to the destinantion, that is enough d. Dun need expensive one. I think engine is more important as it give the overall performance for the car.

not only tyre treadwear but also the air pressure of the tyre
alignment and balancing around 2-3 years once or when I get my tyre change  ;)

Tyre pressure should be checked every week unless you installEd a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

Tyres are the only things connecting you to the road. Going and stopping well, control when turning, cornering...all using the tyres. To say it is not important is to be totally mis-informed. Every 5,000km inspection is a good rule of thumb. That is the time to also physically rotate the tyres - this means to change the tyres from wheel to wheel. Must be done at tyre shop. They will rebalance them (due to wear of tyre) as well for a small fee.
