As the weather turns colder, snow falls in many areas one after another, and slippery road conditions can easily cause rear-end collisions and loss of steering control. As a component that is in direct contact with the ground, tire maintenance is also very important. How to maintain tires in winter to make driving safer in rain and snow?
Check your tires regularly：
The daily maintenance of tires cannot be ignored in any season. Usually, we should regularly check whether the tires have scratches, bulges, punctures, etc., and repair or replace them in time to avoid running with air loss. At the same time, it is necessary to clean up the inclusions in the tread pattern frequently in winter to avoid hard debris remaining in the tread pattern and causing tire damage.
Check tire pressure regularly：
"Tire pressure" is the most important detail. Due to the large temperature difference between day and night in winter, the air in the tire expands and contracts greatly, and the level of tire pressure will directly affect the service life of the tire.
Excessive tire pressure will not only increase the risk of tire blowout, but also cause the middle of the tire to protrude to contact the ground, reducing the grip of the tire. During emergency braking, it cannot provide enough friction to brake the vehicle, threatening driving safety.
If the tire pressure is too low, the outer edges of both sides of the tire will touch the ground, and the entire tread cannot touch the ground. Not only will it increase the wear of the sidewall, but it will not provide enough grip area, and there are hidden dangers in driving.
The optional tire pressure detection system (TPMS) can timely alarm the tire high pressure, low pressure and high temperature to avoid traffic accidents caused by tire failure and ensure driving safety.
Frequent visual inspections：
The easiest and most effective way to carry out visual inspection is to observe whether there are obvious cracks, deformations, pattern wear and other problems on the tire surface. In particular, the pattern is lower than the wear mark, which will lead to reduced grip, slippage, etc.
Always check the pattern for foreign objects, such as stones and sharp objects. This can prevent the tread pattern from being accidentally pierced by foreign objects due to high speed or bumps.
Rotate tires regularly：
Every 10,000km maintenance, the tires must be rotated according to regulations
Due to the different functions and loads of each axle, the wear of each tire is also different to a certain extent. In order to ensure driving safety and prolong the service life of tires, the tires should be replaced regularly.
Safety Wear Mark：
The tires should be replaced in time according to the wear conditions. All tires have wear marks at the pattern depth of 1.6 mm. Where there are wear marks, there is a small boss. This boss is called "tread wear mark". The English abbreviation "TWI" for "Tread Wear Mark". Under the premise of normal use, if the tire wear reaches this bulge, it means that the tire needs to be replaced.
Note: Do not change tires with different patterns or specifications at will, so as to avoid slippage and loss of control due to different friction on the ice. In addition, when using single-guided tires, do not install the pattern in the opposite direction, otherwise the grip performance will be lost.
