Owner troubles last week, although the majority of owners point to the sun and the source of the trouble, but when it comes to bring their own troubles up to temperature. Summer heat, let the car owners and car are injured, it also brings a lot of trouble. These troubles are mostly concentrated in the many aspects of the tires, air conditioning, spontaneous combustion, interior comfort. Let’s first look at the the most close security relationship tire.
Summer traffic safety tire checks essential
Owners of troubles in the last week, many owners worry about the own vehicle tire failure due to the hot weather. In fact, summer driving, especially on the highway, nearly half of the accidents caused by tire failure.
Auto Parts World of Chang Kuo pointed out that the generally flat tire because the tire pressure is insufficient or too high. If the tire pressure is easy to make the tire sidewall bending and breaking burst. If the road before when inflated, due to Tire Valve wear and dust caused by a flat tire, the tire internal tire pressure is too low, can easily lead to a puncture. Tire pressure is too high to make easy tire to burst at the defect in the hot summer weather or when traveling for a long time, this situation is more common.
Check tire pressure before driving, this is the “miscarriage” the most common method. The two front wheels and two rear wheels inflation pressure should be consistent, otherwise traffic in each tire uneven force will cause a puncture. A hot summer Remember that air pressure is not too high, especially in highway driving, the tire inflation pressure lies in between 85% and 90% of the normal value, because the car at high speed for a long time, tire friction and heat generated distributing too late to make the womb The increase in air pressure. Increased fetal temperature increase wear, can easily cause the tire burst, causing the car to crash tragedy.
Chang Kuo also reminded timely heat of summer to make tires. If a car traveling on the highway after an hour, in relation to the appropriate slowdown speed, tire to cool down and then accelerate. Remember not to use cold water poured tire deflated, so that the brake hub and wheels are easy to crack, deflate the tire temperature is reduced there will be insufficient air pressure. Chang Kuo also recommended Qualified owners to alloy wheels, although your point, but in the summer the advantage is obvious, faster cooling, weight, proved, owners of a car for the alloy wheels, a year down to save a good quality tire money is no problem.
Pick the right tire, Chang Kuo said, the owners of the best to look at the tire tread, tread on car tires, in addition to play a beautiful effect, have a great impact on tire performance. Often in city driving the car, you should choose a small tire of those patterns, low noise performance. Need a car cross-country and long distances, you can choose a pattern of massive. Such as Bridgestone, Michelin, Pirelli these big brands have their own product characteristics, vehicle owners can be selected according to their requirements, consider replacing the flat If you are not satisfied with your vehicle’s handling, lower-profile tires, a lot of models, one of the most effective ways to improve vehicle appearance and handling performance is to replace the low-profile tires.
Wei Jian also believes that the summer driving should be used in aggravation harder and better drainage performance of the tire, such as asymmetric tread or tire with a chute, good drainage performance tires provide more grip in the rain, in order to ensure road safety.
Chang Kuo also recommends that owners best to tire in the summer driving filled with nitrogen, because the stability of the inert gas, high temperature heating, the gas will not over-expansion, in order to avoid a puncture. Car to recharge a nitrogen cost is not high, tens of dollars to two hundred dollars can get.
Is very important to learn some common sense
Cheng Yanhui with particular emphasis to the car’s tires to be essential for a routine check each tire should be careful to conduct a “physical”. If the tire is only worn on both sides of the long-term lack of tire pressure, if you only wear the middle part of the long-term tire pressure is too high, you should at least once a month the amount of tire pressure and the tire pressure is maintained at the standard value; if the wear is not balanced East a West a tire unbalanced rims deformation, should do tire balance, front wheel alignment or replacement of the deformed steel ring; front wheel alignment should be done only wear one side of the tire roll angle offset, camber corrected; uplift lump If you touch the tire, said air into the tire inner layer, regardless of the old and the new tires, should be replaced; fine cracks on the tire tread, tire rubber begin to age, it should be replaced.
Often view the tire pressure is key for summer car “miscarriage”

Owners select the appropriate speed level should be based on different speed car tire quality standards, and should check the date of manufacture of the tire, if you exceed the period of use is the best time to replace. Tire rubber high temperature abrasion butyl rubber or better explosion-proof with no guts tire as the tread damage should be replaced as soon as possible. Usually pull over to be as careful as possible to avoid tire outside of collision or collision roadside. Otherwise it is easy to make the tire sidewall injuries hidden, more serious cause internal wire breakage or rims deformation.
Ningbo Yinzhou Xinghua Metal Products Factory believes that, to select those with good handling and safety of tires in the summer. Short braking distances, the strong grip of the wet and dry ground, good drainage, high carcass level, strong and durable, suitable for Chinese road tire, the consumer is the best Pirelli, Michelin, Bridgestone, and other big brands. As for maintenance, he said, judge a tire’s tread wear, you can see the tread wear indicator mark, which is molded in the bottom of the tread grooves, the transcontinental tread width 13mm belt-shaped area, when the tire is worn to the wear indicator The markers revealed, tire tread depth is 1.6mm, then should replace the tire, or the tire will slip occurred lane dangerous.
Also do not be alarmed if the high speed puncture, to try to remain calm, do not rush to hit the steering wheel or emergency braking, should be both hands firmly to the steering wheel, brakes slow speed uniform decline, parked and then replace the spare tire.
