Q1: What is the recommended tyre Pressure for my tyres?
Correct tyre pressure is important not only for safety but also for fuel efficiency. It is measured in Bar, as well as pounds square inch (PSI), and you can find the correct information for your vehicle in the manufacturer’s handbook.
Q2:What is my tyre size?
It can be found in either the vehicle manufacturer’s handbook or on the sidewall of your existing tyres.
Q3: How do I know when I need new Tyres?
Many tyres have tread wear indicator bars molded into the tread. When the tread is worn down to where you can see a solid bar of rubber across the width of the tread, it’s time for new tyres
Q4: What is Tyre under Inflation / over inflation and their impact on tyre life?
Tyre are underinflated when air pressure is less than the recommended pressure by vehicle Manufacturer and over inflated when air pressure is more than this limit.
Under inflation can cause tyre to flex more and there by generating more heat which can deteriorate the characteristics of tyre rubber. It can also make your tyre to wear out faster on shoulders. In severe cases it can cause the rim to slip on the tyre bead, resulting in damage to the tyre, rim and also adversely impacts fuel efficiency.
Q5: What should I do if my tyres wore too fast?
An inspection of your tyres must be performed by an OEM authorized service workshop to rule out any vehicle irregularity.
- 1 Tyre maintenance (inflation and rotation)
- 2 Vehicle maintenance (alignment and suspension)
- 3 Driving styles and habits.
- 4 Materials used in road surfaces.
- 5 Geographical area, the vehicle is driven in.
