With the approaching of autumn, the cool autumn weather is a good time for riders to travel. Drive your car to enjoy the beautiful scenery along the way and relax your tired mood. For driving safety, it is natural to do the relevant maintenance work before traveling. As the limbs of a car, tires also need regular maintenance to eliminate hidden dangers in time. Today, the Auto Accessories Trade Fair will teach you how to check tires to ensure that your car is running normally.
1. Visual inspection
The first step is to check the appearance of the tire. Confirm that there are no bulges, cracks, punctures, etc., and if there are any abnormalities, hand it over to a professional for repair as soon as possible. Tires are rubber products, and aging will inevitably occur over time. The specific manifestation is that the rubber becomes hard, loses elasticity, and the tread is cracked. Therefore, even if the number of kilometers run is not many, it is best to replace the tire after 3-5 years of use depending on the usage environment.
2. Tire pressure check
Many people often neglect the detection of tire pressure. Most vehicles are now equipped with tire pressure monitoring. Too high or too low tire pressure will affect the life of tires. So what we have to do is to monitor whether our tire pressure is normal according to the owner's manual. 210-250kpa is the normal fluctuation range, please make sure that the tire pressure is the same when adjusting.
3. Wear inspection
No matter what brand of tires, there will be a tire wear mark, usually on the side of the tire. When the tread is flush with the wear mark, it is a reminder that the car owner needs to replace the tire in time. Don't take it seriously. In addition to a sharp drop in grip and braking force, a severely worn tire also has the risk of a flat tire. In high-speed driving, it is extremely dangerous to encounter a puncture, so we must pay attention to observe the wear of the tire.
4. Tire selection
For the choice of tires, many people only emphasized wear resistance before. In fact, quietness, drainage, and safety are all characteristics that tires need to pay attention to. If there is a lot of rain in summer and often encounters rainy wet roads, it is particularly important to choose a tire with strong drainage and strong wet grip. We care about the maintenance of the three major parts in our usual car use but ignore the importance of tires. The Auto Wheel Trade Show reminds you: tires are not only related to the control of the vehicle, but also directly involve the members of the car. Safety is more secure only by preventing trouble before it happens.
