Inspection at regular intervals is advised for a smooth drive. The frequency of checking should be decided generally on the basis of actual pressure loss experienced.
It is important to maintain and check, at regular intervals, the inflation pressure of all the tyres, including the spare in a vehicle.
Tyre wear indicator
As your tyres wear down, their ability to grip the road decreases.
Cleaning your Rim/wheel and tyres regularly is not just an appearance issue – it’s preventative maintenance!
Vibration and Noise
Do not ignore apparent impacts, pulling, or vibration
Recent studies have shown that cost-per-kilometer almost doubles when original or re-treaded tyres are pulled early because the tread is worn unevenly or rapidly and this can happen because of some common mechanical conditions.
Rotation patterns differ depending on the kind of vehicle you drive.
Vehicle alignment is one of the most important factors in not only vehicle care, but tyre care as well.
MOUNTING AND BALANCING
When mounting wheels & tyres on to the vehicle, ensure .
Other Mechanical Irregularities
Bent axle; Loose bearing/ wheel shake; Improperly adjusted, hard/weak suspension; etc can also have their share of impact on your vehicle and tyres.
Continuous improvements in tyre and manufacturing technology have led to a uniform and incredibly durable product. But there are some factors which will impact a tyre forever if not taken care of.
The high standards of quality and reliability built into a tyre cannot be fully utilised if/when a driver subjects the tyre to severe abuse by speeding over pot-holes, stones, etc.
Regular checking of brakes
Regular brake checks are an important part of any vehicle preventative maintenance plan.
Excessive heat is generated by the abnormal flexing of a tyre.
Driving at high speeds has a greater chance of causing tyre damage than at low speeds.
