 TIRE MAINTENANCE

 

Some of the tire maintenance should be done by the user, while some should be done by tire specialists.

Most users are capable of visual inspections only, such as checking the inflation pressure, wear condition and the appearance of damage. Inspecting tires for their safety and economy (extension of tire service life) is a basic activity of tire sales and service people.

Check inflation pressure

  • Tire's Inflation Pressure is one of the most important factors for safe and economic driving.
  • Be sure to check inflation pressure periodically.
  • Tire's inflation pressure decreases naturally.

Overinflation

  • Abnormal wear of the tread center (CENTER wear)
  • Ride discomfort like jumping
  • Easy to impact damage
  • Vehicle stability decrease

Underinflation

  • Abnormal wear on both sides of the tread (SHOULDER wear)
  • Standing wave phenomenon
  • Hydroplaning (aquaplaning) phenomenon
  • Poor cornering stability
  • High fuel consumption
  • Separation and cord break up due to heat build-up

Tire Rotation
When tires are used for a long period in the same positions, the front-wheel tires usually wear more quickly than the rear-wheel tires. For longer tire life, it is necessary to perform tire position rotations periodically as recommended by the tire manufacturer (after 5,000 - 7,500 km for the first rotation and then after every 10,000 km).

  • Prevention of uneven tread wear
  • Extension of tire service life
  • Averaging of tire fatigue

The front-wheel tires of an FWD vehicle wear two or three times faster than the rear-wheel tires because the front-wheel tires function for both driving and steering.
