Tires and wheels safety tips are things that hold importance in the preservation of life to car users and owners. Find guidance on the following tips:
One, Check tire pressure often.
Tires should be cool and the car should not have been driven for at least three hours. Do not reduce pressure while tires are hot.
Two, Tire pressure specified by the car maker is very important.
Tires that aren’t inflated to manufacturer’s specification will wear out faster than properly inflated tires.
Three, tires at maximum air pressure roll more easily than when at low.
But it is acceptable to add 3 to 5 pounds above the recommended pressure to each tire without exceeding 32 psi to increase tire life and gas mileage without affecting your car’s riding qualities.
Four, avoid under inflation.
Low pressure causes extreme flexing and causes excessive heat to build up which is one cause of tire failure.
Consult tire wear patterns for your specific problem.
Five, The alignment of the front wheels of your car should be checked at least once a year.
More often if you drive at high rates of speeds. Improperly aligned wheels can ruin a set of new tires in a very short time.
Six, A wheel that is not balanced can cause sufficient vibration to affect steering and increase wear of the front suspension parts.
A wheel can be damaged in hitting a pothole when balancing weights fall off the rim. Tire wear also affects balance.
Seven, One of the surest precautions for avoiding front tire blow-outs is having the best tires on the front. A front tire blow-out is much more dangerous than rear tire blow-outs even though you have direct control of the front wheels.
Eight, Get familiar with the feel of your steering wheel while driving on balanced, properly inflated, good tires at maximum legal speeds. Any different feel should be examined carefully. It may be the wheels are not balanced.
