Tires, I believe everyone knows the importance of its existence. As the only object in contact between the car and the ground, many people know that it needs to be replaced in time, but sometimes it is possible that some problems occur before the life of the tire, such as Nailed!
Compared with the situation of tire blowouts caused by the careless use of tires, nailing is a more common situation on the road, but you should not ask why there are nails on the road. This is a problem that buyers and sellers want to know. So today, let's talk about how to deal with such problems, whether it is a stud or a flat tire.
First of all, tools are naturally indispensable. Common vehicle-mounted tools include tow hooks, warning triangles, jacks, tire wrenches, etc. Of course, most models will also be equipped with spare tires. When these tools are complete Circumstances, then you have taken a big step from success.
If you have a problem on the road, don’t forget to place a warning triangle. According to regulations, you need to place the warning sign 50 to 100 meters away from you. If you are on a highway, place it. At a distance of 150 meters.
Of course, if you find it in a parking lot or an open location like buying a king, then just go ahead and do it!
Then, take out the tools you need from the trunk, including spare tires, jacks, and wrenches. Then loosen the screw on the hub, and loosen it counterclockwise, preferably in the form of a diagonal line, so as to prevent uneven force on one side. It should be noted that most of the wheel hub screws are tightened, and it is recommended to use afoot to make it easier to loosen.
After that, don’t rush to unscrew all the screws, use a jack to lift the vehicle, then unscrew the screws and remove the tires, then replace the spare tire, screw-in, and jack down, and finally, after the tire hits the ground Tighten the screws thoroughly and it's ok.
Doesn't it sound like a little complicated, and tires are strenuous to move around? Then I will tell you some methods that do not need to remove the tires, or even do not need to do it.
First of all, let’s talk about the method that does not need to do it yourself, that is, call for rescue. Who should I call? If you have car damage insurance, call the insurance company. If you apply for a car owner card from some banks, call the customer service directly. If there is none, call the 4S shop.
What I want to mention here is that some 4S stores need to charge a certain fee for on-site rescue. In addition, insurance companies and car owners' services are free, you just need to wait by the side. However, of course, there are disadvantages. The disadvantage is that the waiting time is relatively long. Basically, the entire process from making a call to changing a tire takes about 1 hour to 1.5 hours.
If you really don’t want to wait, then you can choose to buy a bottle of "automatic tire repair fluid" from a treasure, just unscrew the tire air cap, then shake the tire fill up, and then you can use it, different tire repair fluids The method of use will be slightly different, so I won’t go into details here, just choose the one you think is convenient to use.
When you run out of tire repair fluid, remember to drive at a low speed for about 2 minutes, and then drive at a speed of no more than 80km/h and no more than 80km. Unless you are forced to use it on the highway, it is recommended to go to the auto repair shop as soon as possible after use. Perform a tire repair.
If you are like buying and selling, the vehicle is equipped with run-flat tires, then please ignore the series of operations I mentioned above. Explosion-proof tires are actually run-flat tires to be precise, meaning that you can continue to drive even without tire pressure, but you should remember that you cannot drive 80km at a speed exceeding 80km/h.
Don't think that there is only one type of tire repair. In fact, it can be divided into two types: cold repair and hot repair. However, the process of hot repair is relatively complicated and troublesome. In terms of cold repair, the common ones are beef tendon, patch, and mushroom nails. Among the three, the method of the beef tendon is the cheapest, but it is also the least durable, so it is temporarily ignored.
Then the most common tire repair outside is actually patch type tire repair, which mainly polishes the damaged parts inside the tire, then cleans up the polished debris, and then smears some special tire repair glue on and around the damaged parts. Stick the patch used for repairing the tire to the damaged place while rolling it firmly, and then apply a layer of glue to complete the repair. However, because the damaged location is still directly exposed, it may continue to expand the damaged area when driving, which requires frequent inspections.
There is also a mushroom nail repair method, which can be regarded as the more advanced tire repair method at present, but the difference compared to the patch type tire repair method is that the mushroom nail repair method can fill the gap of the damaged hole very well. It is completely safe and stable while avoiding the continuous expansion of the damaged area.
It should be reminded that the prices of these two types of tire repairs are basically in the price range of 50-100 yuan, and there are price differences mainly depending on where they are located. Taking Guangzhou as an example, the patch type tire repair is 50 yuan, and the mushroom nail subsidy is 100 yuan.
When you put on the spare tire, you will find that there are signs such as 80km/h and 50mp/h, which actually means that you cannot drive at a speed higher than this, otherwise there will be dangers. As for the mileage It is best to control the mileage within 80km.
If you have a front tire puncture, you need to install the rear wheel on the front wheel, and then turn the spare tire to the rear wheel. This is because most family cars use the front-wheel drive method. If the front two driving wheels have The tire width is not the same, it is easy to cause difficulty in handling. Conversely, if your car is a rear-drive model, but at the same time there is a problem with the rear wheel, then the spare tire must be replaced with the front wheel.
Also, don't run away after repairing the tires, but don't forget to balance the tires. These are because after the tires are disassembled, the counterweight is likely to be different. If the dynamic balance treatment is not performed, tire jitter, eccentric wear, etc. will occur, and the risk of tire blowout will likely occur over time.
By the way, having said so much, let’s say that if the sidewall is broken or the tire is blown, there is only one solution for you, and that is: change the tire!
China Wheel Expo reminds you that paying more attention to the use of tires can better avoid the risk of tire blowouts. As for avoiding the unavoidable studs, if you really encounter them, then know how to deal with them. "Abandoned" by tires on the side.
