The pressure must reach the standard
The driver must inflate the tires in accordance with the regulations of the car factory. When the tire pressure is lower than the standard value, the wear of the tire shoulder increases sharply; when the tire pressure is higher than the standard value, the tire contact area decreases and the unit pressure increases, which increases the wear of the middle of the tire tread and increases the tire rigidity. , Which increases the dynamic load on the wheels, which is prone to carcass bursting.
No cracks on the tread
Regularly check the tire surface for cracks, deformation and other defects. Tire grooves gradually become shallow due to driving wear and tear. If they are worn flat, they will lose their drainage and anti-skid effects, and the performance of the car will be greatly reduced. The seemingly small cracks are a hidden danger of tire bursts when driving at high speeds. In addition, pay attention to promptly remove the small stones in the groove.
Parking and choosing flat land
Avoid parking the vehicle on roads with thick, sharp or sharp stones. Do not park the vehicle near or in contact with petroleum products, acids and other materials that affect the deterioration of rubber. The driver should not turn the steering wheel after parking, as this operation will accelerate tire wear.
Don’t splash water to dissipate heat
The tires are prone to overheating during long-term driving or high-speed driving in summer, and the air pressure increases at the same time. At this time, stop to dissipate heat, and it is strictly forbidden to deflate and reduce pressure or splash water to cool down to prevent abnormal aging of the tread rubber.
Avoid sudden braking
Don’t start too hard. Avoid frequent use of brakes and emergency brakes to avoid acceleration of tread wear due to the drag of tires and the ground; when turning, overtaking, passing through intersections, narrow roads, railway crossings, etc., you should master the appropriate Speed and pay attention to the road, pedestrians, and vehicle dynamics, prepare for braking, reduce frequent braking, avoid emergency braking, thereby reducing tire wear; when facing unavoidable broken glass or other foreign objects, slow down and pass. Don’t brake quickly, because the pressure increases due to sudden braking, and glass fragments and foreign objects are more likely to get into the tire.
Choose a good pavement
When driving on highway maintenance and construction sections, use the method of low speed and slow driving to choose the road to avoid excessive impact on the tires, or even stabs or scratches; when driving on uneven roads, one must choose the road surface to reduce the tire and road surface. To avoid damage to the parts and tires; secondly, slow down to avoid tire bumps and strong vibration; to pass through muddy sections, choose a firmer and non-slip place to avoid tires sinking, idling on the spot, and severe heat generation. The tire and sidewall are severely cut or scratched.
control the speed
Vehicle turning should be based on the curve conditions and turning radius, and generally slow down appropriately, so as not to accelerate unilateral tire wear due to inertial force and centrifugal force; when vehicles go downhill, the appropriate speed should be controlled according to the size, length and road surface conditions of the vehicle. In this way, emergency braking can be avoided or used less, and tire wear can be reduced; when the vehicle stops and stops on the way, it should develop the habit of sliding safely.
Check the spare tire frequently
In the maintenance and use of tires, don’t forget the most important tire—the spare tire. The spare tire is equipped by the manufacturer, but it is often forgotten by the car owner and lacks maintenance. It is recommended that you check the spare tire regularly every 3 months, and inflate it if necessary, so as not to discover that it is flat when you need it.
pay attention to abrasion resistance
Most people don’t know that wear resistance is actually a basic indicator of a tire. The difference from its size, load-bearing and speed rating is that the wear resistance index is not marked on the shoulders of the tire, perhaps because of the wear resistance index. It is not like the other indicators above that will directly affect the installation or pose a direct threat to security. However, car owners who are interested may wish to go online or learn about the wear resistance index of tires through other channels, which should be a reference for you to choose a durable tire.
