Optimal Tyre Health: Care and Upkeep Insights for Longevity

Keeping a check on the health of your tyres is extremely important in order to keep a check on your health as your way of travelling makes a lot of impact on your health. Here are some of the ways you can take care of your tyres.

● Maintain the inflation pressure in the tyres

The tyres need right inflation pressure to get the optimum performance, safety, and fuel efficiency. Keep in mind to use an accurate tyre pressure gauge to frequently check your tyres when they are cool.

The recommended level is listed in the owner's manual or on the vehicle placard. The single most crucial thing you can do to extend the lifespan and maintain durability of your tyres is to maintain optimum inflation pressure.

The most common reason for irreparable tyre damage is under-inflation, which can cause serious breaking and subsequent air loss. The outcome is heat and mechanical damage because it lowers load capacity, permits excessive sidewall flexing, and increases rolling resistance.

Overinflation increases stiffness, which can make driving uncomfortable and cause unwelcoming vehicle vibration. Additionally, it raises the possibility of impact damage.

● Do not overspin your tyres

When your car gets stuck in snow, mud, or sand, try to keep your tyres from spinning excessively as it could lead to tyre overheating and irreparable harm. The car may be released by gently swaying it back and forth. Never stand close to or behind a tyre spinning rapidly, such as when trying to push a stuck automobile or using an on-car spin balance machine.

● Look for wear in your tyres

Tyres should always be taken out of service when they have 1.6mm of tread depth left. All brand-new tyres contain tread wear indicators, which become visible at the 1.6mm level as smooth banks in the tread grooves. Accidents in wet weather could be caused by skidding on bare or nearly bald tyres.

● Avoid damage in your tyres

It's crucial for safety to regularly check your tyres for indicators of deterioration and their general health. Get the tyres checked from the tyre dealers if there are any concerns. Any impact, penetration, crack, knot, bulge, or air loss necessitates removal of the tyres and professional inspection.

● Do not mount your own tyres

An explosion of the tire assembly due to poor mounting techniques could cause serious injury. Always remember to match the tyre and rim diameters according to the manufacturer's guidelines. Only individuals with specialised training should mount tyres.

Do not install tyres with less load capability than specified. Make sure that the load-carrying capacity of the replacement tyres is as high as what the original equipment manufacturer provides.

● Don't overcharge your car

To learn about the load limits, consult the owner's manual of your car. Your car's tyres and other essential parts will suffer if it is overloaded. Additionally, this may result in poor handling, increased fuel usage, and possible tyre damage. Never install new tyres on your automobile that have a lower load capacity than what is indicated on the tyre placard, and keep in mind that the ideal rim width is crucial for good tyre load distribution and performance.

Keep your car's suspension and wheels aligned, and balance and rotate your tyres.

Basic Rules:

● Fit the tire with the deepest tread on the rear axle when mounting two tyres.

● Put radials on the back axle if radials and non-radials are to be installed on the same vehicle.

● On the same axle, never combine radials and non-radials.

● Always install snow tyres or all-season tyres in sets of four on-performance vehicles.

● The installation of tyres with various speed ratings is not advised.

● If a vehicle has tyres mounted, the same axle should have similar pairs of tyres if the tyres have different speed ratings.

● The vehicle will only be able to go at the lowest speed rating of its tyres.

● Always consult a dealer before switching tyre sizes to determine the ideal rim width, and double-check everything.
