What if I find that the vehicle is shaking?
China international wheel exhibition reminds you: jitter indicates that there is a problem with your vehicle and needs attention. In order to help determine the cause and correct it, the steering device, suspension device, and tires should be checked. If you ignore the jitter, it will lead to excessive wear of the tires and suspension, and even become a hidden safety hazard.
Will my driving habits affect tire life?
of course. Good driving habits help to ensure that tires and vehicles are kept in good condition. Here are some tips for extending tire life:
Don't drive too fast-too high a speed will increase the deflection of the tire, causing excessive heat, speeding up the wear of the tire, and shortening the service life.
Follow the prescribed maximum load and do not overload-the life of the tire depends to a large extent on the size of the load. Regular overloading of 20% will shorten the life of the tire to 50% of the normal life. Overloading also increases tire temperature and air pressure increases rubber and cord fatigue, and can easily cause delamination.
Avoid quick starts, emergency braking, or sharp turns.
Avoid holes or obstacles on the road.
Avoid hitting road cliffs and do not ride on road cliffs while parking.
How does high-speed driving affect tires?
The China International Vehicle Wheel Exhibition believes that when driving at high speeds if the tire passes through potholes or touches other hard objects, it will cause the tire to deform under the severe compression of the impact object and the rim flange. The cord fabric is broken, and the air inside the tire will form a bulge at the break. When driving at high speed, the tire is more likely to be damaged by foreign objects on the road than when driving at low speed. In any case, do not exceed the reasonable speed required by the driving conditions and the legal restrictions. If you turn or encounter obstacles such as potholes in front, please slow down.
How do I check tire wear?
Tires usually give drivers a long time warning before problems occur, so learning to "interpret" these early warning signals can eliminate many wear problems, thereby extending the service life of tires by thousands of kilometers. Observe whether the tread pattern has the following wear conditions:
Unilateral wear, that is, one side of the pattern is more worn than the other.
Pinnate/serrated abrasion, ie unevenness of blocks on the same side.
Center abrasion, that is, the center pattern of the tread is more worn than the two sides.
Abnormal wear, that is irregular wear on the tread.
If the above situation occurs, the tire pressure, positioning, or other related components should be checked and adjusted, and the tire should be adjusted.
How do I know it’s time to change my tires?
The tire must be replaced when the tread groove depth is only 1.6 mm. At this time, the wear marking rubber strip across the tread will be exposed, reminding you that the tire can no longer be used, otherwise it will slip or become damaged when driving. drift. Here is a simple way to measure the groove depth of the tire: find an old (prior to 2001) 5-corner coin, insert "5" into the groove of the tire, if you can see the top of "5" A horizontal stroke indicates that the tire can no longer be used.
