     A car is traveling on the road, and the only part that touches the ground is the tire of the car. The tire condition directly affects the vehicle performance and handling performance. As a car owner, we must understand some of the common sense of tire maintenance, regular tire maintenance, early detection of possible problems, so as to nip in the bud.

1Check tire pressure every month

     Tire under pressure and over pressure will lead to abnormal wear and tear of tires, shorten the life of tires, increase fuel consumption, and even increase the chances of a flat tire. The tire expert recommends that we check the tire pressure once a month to ensure the normal tire pressure.

The tyre pressure check must be carried out when the tire is in a cool condition. The tire pressure gauge or the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) can be used to check the tire pressure. The standard tire pressure under various load conditions will be shown on the vehicle specifications. At the same time, this parameter will be listed on the label at the driver's door.

2Always pay attention to the wear marks of the tires

    The abrasion mark of the tire is located in each main drain tank of the tyre, and is a rubber boss whose cross section is trapezoid. When the tread pattern is worn to the wear mark, the tire must be replaced. During the rainy season, the depth of tread must be kept above 3mm in order to prevent the vehicle from skidding in the water.

3. Pay attention to the inside and outside sides when installing tires

    The inside and outside reverse loading of the tyre will greatly reduce the drainage performance and grip performance of the guided tread tire. If tire is found inside and outside, please reinstall the tire to the repair shop immediately. The outside of the tire will be printed with the word "OUTSIDE" or the date of production. Through one of these two marks, the outer side of the tire can be judged.

4Tires also have a shelf life

    Tires are rubber products, so rubber aging can occur. Tire rubber has a shelf life of 4-5 years. Tire rubber will accelerate aging after the shelf life, resulting in lower tire performance, for example, "9MCR0810" is the tire production date code. Among them, the last 4 "0810" means that the tire is "10" in the "8 week" produced products.

    After you read this article, you should have a more comprehensive understanding of how to maintain the tires. If you tire of before and no special attention, every time the tire leak or puncture after the tire curing, then please from now on your vehicle according to the prompt of the tire inspection and maintenance.
