The continuous increase in the cost of using cars is forcing people to not let go of any detail that saves money. Tires are actually a cost-intensive consumable in the process of using the car. 4 tires are worth thousands of yuan. If improper use causes abnormal wear and tear, it is also a test for the owner’s wallet. How to reduce tire wear and make tires use The longevity of life is the knowledge that car owners must master. Good and skilled driving skills can effectively reduce tire wear, extend the service life of tires, and improve driving safety at the same time.
Insufficient or too high tire pressure can easily lead to a puncture
“You must inflate the tires on high speeds.” Many riders think that only when you get enough air on high speeds can the car have the “strength” to run at high speeds. “But in fact, this idea is wrong. The tires have been pressed. High, it will reduce the contact area between the tire and the ground. At this time, the pressure on the tire will be relatively increased, and the grip of the tire will be affected. In addition, when the vehicle passes over a ditch or bumpy road, there is not enough space in the tire to absorb vibration. In addition to affecting driving stability and riding comfort, it will also cause greater impact on the suspension system, which will also bring harm.
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.
Don’t start too hard. Avoid frequent use of brakes and emergency brakes to avoid acceleration of tread wear due to tire dragging on 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 surface, pedestrians, and vehicle dynamics, make preparations 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.
Check the tread for cracks, beware of punctures when driving at high speeds
“The side of my tire is pierced by glass. Is there any problem with running at high speed after repairing the tire?” A car owner asked. According to the staff of the 4S shop, if the side of the tire is injured, the insurance factor will not be guaranteed, because the side of the tire basically has no steel wire, the sidewall is very thin, and it is easy to burst at high speed. Regularly check the tire surface for cracks, deformation and other defects. Tire grooves gradually become shallower due to driving wear. If they are worn flat, they will lose water drainage and anti-skid effects. The performance of the car will be greatly reduced. The seemingly small cracks are a hidden danger of puncture during high-speed driving. Pay attention to promptly remove the small stones in the groove.
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. 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.
Pay attention to the road while driving. A good habit is better than regular maintenance
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.
Vehicle turning should be based on the curve conditions and turning radius, and generally slow down appropriately to avoid acceleration of unilateral tire wear due to inertial force and centrifugal force; vehicle downhill, the appropriate speed should be controlled according to the size, length and road conditions of the slope 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. 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 the owner check the spare tire regularly every 3 months and inflate it if necessary, so as not to find it is flat when it is needed.
