Tires and pressure check in tires


Tires are the unique parts of the car which constantly are in contact to the road and even a total contact surface of all tires the small. Therefore it is necessary to carry out regularly careful check of tires as both own safety and safety of other participants in traffic in big degree depends on a condition of tires.

Continuous check of a condition of tires will allow to find in due time intensive wear and to eliminate its reason that will allow to avoid more serious consequences.

In the presence of non-uniform wear of tires it is necessary to find the reason of it and to eliminate it.

• Check tires on existence of cuts, punctures and extraneous subjects in tires. From the tire it is possible to define places of leakage of air by soapsuds.

• Carefully survey internal lateral face of each tire on existence of traces of brake liquid.

Demanded pressure in tires prolongs term of its service and consequently it is necessary for checking regularly. Pressure control in tires make only on cold tires.

Check of level of a deterioration of protectors of tires
Tires of wheels it is necessary not delay mechanism but to replace, if the special indexes which were below at the bottom of a protector (In) as a result of a deterioration are made even to a surface of a protector of the tire.

The provision of indexes is designated by a triangular label on an onboard wall of the tire (And).

Measurement of depth of drawing of a protector of the tire
Depth of drawing of a protector of tires can be supervised by the special adaptation and at achievement of limiting wear of the tire it is necessary to replace.

Pressure check in tires
Pressure check in tires is made only on cold tires. Optimum pressure in tires increases service life of tires and operational parameters of the car.

Types of wear of a protector

Lateral wear of a protector

Low pressure in the tire (wear from two parties)

Low pressure in the tire leads to continuous deformation of the tire and the wrong contact of the tire to a road surface. Thus the cord of the tire strongly wears out and coupling of the tire with a paving decreases. Also because of an overheat of the tire there can be its gap.

Wrong corner of disorder (wear on the one hand)

It is necessary to make suspension bracket repair.

Overcoming of turns on high speed

It is necessary to reduce speed on turns.

Wear of a protector in the center

High pressure in the tire

At pressure in the tire norms are much higher, there is an intensive wear of a protector in the tire center, coupling of the tire with a paving decreases, the tire does not extinguish roughness of the road therefore all blows are transferred to a body and the probability of a rupture of the tire increases.

• Check and finish to norm pressure in tires.

In certain cases it is necessary to increase pressure in tires, in particular, at movement on high speeds or with big loading, thus do not forget to finish pressure to norm at normal operation of the car.

Non-uniform wear

Tires on forward wheels can non-uniformly wear out from communication with not coaxiality of wheels. Thus it is necessary to adjust corners of installation of wheels.
