Tyre Safety Tips

THE IMPORTANCE OF CORRECT INFLATION

Tyre pressure governs the lifetime of the tyre. The compressed gas among the tyre assembly determines the load carry ability, stability and handling. The pressure ought to be checked frequently once the tyres area unit cold.

Overinflation

Excessive gas pressure causes speedy wear within the centre of the tread. there's conjointly a larger danger of casing fracture and tread cutting injury.

Correct Inflation

The correct pressure ensures most mileage with satisfactory artefact, stability and road holding properties. The tyre is unbroken at the contour at that it absolutely was designed to run.

Underinflation

Insufficient gas pressure accelerates tread wear and throws undue stress on the tyre casing. Underinflation causes excessive flexing on the sidewall, heat buit-up and irregular tread wear.

CONDITIONS AFFECTING TREAD WEAR

  • Underinflation / Over-loading
  • Speed
  • Oil and grease
  • Braking and acceleration
  • Road surfaces
  • Mechanical irregularities
  • Unbalanced wheels
