Common Tyre Problems
The wear patterns of the tyres are the indicators of the abnormalities in vehicle, inflation, road and driving habits etc.
If you know what to look for, in the day to day running of your car and how to prevent problems from occurring in the future, you will reduce the risk of having to deal with an expensive repair and inconvenience.
AEOLUS as experienced tyre manufacturer guides you to draw the best value from your tyres and ensure safe rides.
It is important to maintain and check, at regular intervals, the inflation pressure of all the tyres, including the spare in a vehicle. The frequency of checking should be decided generally on the basis of actual pressure losses experienced.
Excessive wear at the center of the tread indicates that the air pressure in the tyre is consistently too high.
This type of wear usually results from consistent underinflation.
A 4-point alignment (as opposed to a front-end alignment) essentially ensures that the tyres are all parallel to each other
Regardless of the position on the vehicle, a worn or loose wheel bearing will result in a severe irregular tread wear pattern.
High speed operations result in increased tyre running temperatures, which would also cause the rate of tread wear to be faster. Along with this, negligent driving can result in several other problems.
The bead is the portion of the tyre which is seating the tyre snugly fit on the wheel.
The tyre cuts, damage and bruises impact the tyre life and safety.
Fast cornering, continued sharp and high speed of gradients at high speed causes rapid tread wear.
A bent wheel, in addition to probably causing a vibration in the car, will also affect the wear on its tyre.
The most common cause of a tyre puncture could be slow or rapid deflation of a tyre, depending on its size, due to a sharp object penetrating it, while on the go.
Continuous improvements in tyre and manufacturing technology have led to a uniform and incredibly durable product. But there are some more factors which have an impact on the tyre, and if not taken care of, becomes a major problem for the driver.
Tyre Conicity Problems
Conicity problems are usually most noticeable on the front wheels.
Tyre Vibration Problems
It is important to remember that vibrations are caused by excessive radial (vertical) and lateral (sideways) runout in the tyre, wheel or hub.
Tyre Noise problem
Tyre noise usually shows up as a whine due to abnormal tread wear or as a thumping sound caused by ply separation.
The wheel/tyre assembly on a vehicle shall invariably have a degree of unbalance.
