Tyre Maintenance: Know All About It

Why Is Car Tyre Importance?

Tyres are the most important and overlooked element in a car. Car tyre maintenance or car maintenance is essential as they are in direct contact with the road and if the pressure in the tyre etc. is significantly less or not proper, it can be a threat on life if the car is on high speed.

Tyre performance is affected by the following factors:

  • Overinflation or under inflation: If the tyres are not inflated according to the recommended pressure, quality of the tyre will become irrelevant. Inflation below the recommended pressure or above the recommended pressure can impact the life of the tyre.

  • Load on a vehicle: Uneven load distribution can lead to an unequal burden on some tyres which can cause irreversible damage

  • Speed: Driving continuously on high speed can lead to reduced stiffness of the tyre due to excessive heating of rubber which will ultimately lead to increased tyre wear or damage as rubber is a non-conductor of heat so it will retain it 

  • Wheel alignment: A vehicle is aligned correctly when its suspension components or steering is set according to the manufacturer or when wheels are running straight. For proper vehicle control, safety wheel alignment is critical. As soon as you find your car pulling to one side etc. get your tyres aligned.

  • Wheel balancing: People often consider wheel alignment and wheel balancing as the same thing but in wheel balancing tyres are balanced by positioning weights on the tyres to counteract the heavy spots. For driving comfort, safe and extended tyre life wheel balancing is crucial.

  • Rotation of the tyre: For optimum tyre life, rotation of a tyre is recommended to get a uniform tyre tread wear. It should work as per the manufacturer's recommendation.

  • Condition of the road: Conditions on which tyres operate along with the speed affect life of the tyre majorly for example- broken roads or rough road surface, hilly roads etc

  • Different driving habits: Some driving habits can cause significant damage to the tyres such as driving on high speed with under inflation, sharp turns on high speed, driving over significant obstacles etc

  • Impact of the season: Structural durability or mileage is affected by different or changing weather like dry and hot weather in summers and cold in winters.

Problems Related To Car Tyres

As tyres bear the whole weight of the car and are the only part of your vehicle which is in direct contact with the road, some problems are bound to come with time, which are:

  • Issues in tyre pressure

The most common issue is over, or under-inflation, which can take place with more you drive your vehicle or if the air-filled is more than the recommended pressure. 

  • Worn tyre tread

No matter how much you take care of your tyres, they will wear out one day as the tread of the tyre which is crucial at times of brakes or maintaining a grip on the road surface wears out with time and when the tread depth is below 1.6 mm, your tyres need to change.

  • Punctures or bulges

Damages by punctures have different ranges, as if a small puncture is there,  it can be repaired in the garage while if a big puncture is there, the tyre will have to be replaced. On the other hand, bulges can occur from the tyre’s impact, which can be repaired in garages.

How To Maintain Car Tyres?: Car Tyre Maintenance Tips

We often buy expensive tyres for giving more mileage or less fuel, longer sustainability, safety, etc. Still, if the tyres are not properly maintained, they will act as a budget tyre, i.e. worn, flat or unsafe. AutoBest Emperio (ABE) has got some tyre care tips to gain the tyre’s healthy life to avoid this.

  • Proper car tyre check or Tyre pressure should be checked frequently, including air pressure in the spare tyre.

  • Maintain the air pressure according to the manufacturer’s recommendation

  • Excessive tyre spinning should be avoided; for example- when your car is stuck in the sand, etc., it can cause irreversible damage.

  • Tyres should be inspected frequently to see if there is any damage on the tyre or just to verify the tyre’s standard conditions for safety.

  • The vehicle should not be overloaded as it will put more load to the tyre leading to increased fuel consumption or damage.

  • Rotate your tyres, go for regular wheel alignment and wheel balancing for a healthy tyre life

  • If the tyre’s tread is below 1.6 mm in depth, change your tyres as it will lose its grip or proper braking ability.
