Nowadays, tire technology is becoming more and more advanced. Tires are most important parts of a car. When changing tires, many people choose tires that suit them according to their needs, but some people still have such questions: Bought wear-resistant tires, why are they still so worn out? I chose energy efficient tires, so why do they consume so much fuel? I installed silent tires, why is noise still so loud? What I want to tell you is that no matter how good tires are, it is useless not to pay attention to maintenance!
Tires are consumable items and only part of car that comes into contact with road. This is very important for driving safety! The tire life is usually 50,000-100,000 kilometers and service life is 3-5 years. However, if driving style and driving conditions are not good, it is likely that the tires will be disposed of in advance. As a reminder to everyone, tire safety is important and regular maintenance is a must. Do you know everything about tire care?
First, regular tire cleaning
When driving in various difficult road conditions, foreign matter such as gravel, glass fragments, etc. can easily get into tire tread. Then, when driving, tires will make a sharp and unpleasant sound. Pebbles are also a kind of “killer” for tires: if they are not removed in time, these foreign objects will gradually pierce tires, creating a safety hazard and a great threat to driving safety! Therefore, it is very important for everyone to regularly clean foreign body in tire gap.
Secondly, pay attention to tire tread depth
Regularly inspect tires for major damage such as bulges, scratches and delaminations; Check tire wear, and when tire pattern is worn to wear limit mark, replace it with a new tire in time to avoid driving safety Hidden danger, even cause explosion. In addition, cracks in tread are an important sign of tire aging, so it is necessary to pay attention to whether there are cracks in tires during daily maintenance of car.
Third, check your tire pressure regularly
Everyone knows that heat expands and contracts with cold. Similarly, due to rise in temperature, gas in tire will continue to expand due to heat. When car is driving at high speed, if tires cannot dissipate heat well, it is easy to cause a tire burst accident. Therefore, it is recommended that novice drivers first adjust their tire pressure correctly when temperature is high. Even if tires get hot, air pressure stays within a controlled range. On contrary, if weather is cold, everyone must make adjustments.
Fourthly, change your tires regularly
According to general tire change standards mentioned above, when this deadline is reached, new tires must be replaced on time, but for vehicles that often drive at high speeds, tire change time and mileage must be properly extended. In addition, driving style and driving conditions also have a big impact, car owners should pay attention to it.
Five, regular tire change
Because operating conditions and load on each tire are different, it is common for load on rear wheel to be greater than load on front. Due to right-hand traffic, load on right wheel is greater than on right. left wheel, so tires should be changed in time according to vehicle maintenance. Tire transposition is divided into transverse transposition and cyclic transposition. A crossover is suitable for cars that often drive on roads with large arches, while a circular transposition is suitable for cars that often drive on relatively flat roads.
