6 Tips To Reduce Tire Wear

Abnormal wear will shorten the tire lifespan. Here are 6 tips to help you effectively reduce tire wear.

1. Do Not Splash Water On Hot Tires

The tires are prone to overheating when driving for a long time in summer or high speed, and the air pressure increases. At this time, the vehicle should be stopped for heat dissipation. It is strictly forbidden to deflate or drop water to cool down.


2. No Cracks On The Tread

Regularly inspect the tire surface for cracks, deformations and other defects. The seemingly small cracks are the hidden danger of puncture when driving at high speed.


3. Tire Pressure Should Meet the Standard

Tire pressure is an important indicator of the tire wear. When the tire air pressure is lower than the standard value, the tire shoulder wear increases sharply. When the tire air pressure is higher than the standard value, the central tire tread wears out fast. Meanwhile, the rigidity of the tire also increases, which is more likely to cause blowout of the carcass.


4. Avoid Sudden Braking

When starting a vehicle, avoid frequent sudden brakes to prevent tires from tread wear. When facing broken glass or other foreign objects that cannot be avoided, the correct way is to slow down for passing. Do not brake sharply, because the pressure increases due to sudden braking, so that glass fragments and foreign objects are more likely to get into the tire.


5. Parking On Even Ground

When parking, try to choose even ground and avoid unbalanced parking. Avoid parking on rough, or sharp-edged surfaces. 


6. Pay Attention To The Start

The friction is greatest when a vehicle starts to go. The power generated by the engine will slowly exceed the frictional force to make the vehicle accelerate forward. So, when starting a vehicle, you are recommended to have a gentle start and slow speed.
