Factors On Changing Tires

It is important that tires good ift is the key of safety in riding. The same as shoe soles that can wear, tires can wear as well. Basically,  people will change tire when blown tire or accidents happened. Of course, you don’t want that to happen to you Mates! Here are some things you need to pay attention at when you want to decide to change your car tires.

1. Know your bald tires

Tires are always in touch with the asphalt when you ride. These tires will eventually wear out or should we say, bald tires. Bald tires are extremely dangerous if it’s not identified quickly and changed with the new ones. Bald tires can cause a slip if the road is too slippery. This can be known by looking at the TWI (Tread Wear Indicator) triangle which is located on the sidewall. Every once in two weeks or when you check the tire pressure, make sure you also check the thickness of that indicator. Generally, the minimum thickness of when the tires should be replaced is 1,6 mm. Less than that, then you need to quickly change the tire

2. Know the bulged tires

Know the tires when it feels a bit shaky or tremble hard. Surely there is a sign that your tires are in trouble. Generally, this is caused by the bulge on the tire. Bulged tire is caused by several things. First of all, the pressure volume which is too much can cause the tire to incapably sustain the pressure and leads to bulge. Therefore, you need to know the standard tire pressure of your car. Second, toe in toe out can also cause the bulge. Toe in toe out is the condition where the tires are not in fit, meaning that the position is a bit tilting in and out. Third, the road you go through is rather rough. The worst part is that when hard suspension and dead suspensions happened will cause hard bump. So how do we check whether your tire got bulged or not? When your tires don’t feel right, you should get it checked. The easiest way is by jacking up your car 0,5 cm from the ground. Release the handbrake, then turn your tire. If your tire got stuck and didn’t turn, then your tire is bulged.

3. Know your tire’s age

Tires also have age. Know your tire’s age by looking at the production date on the sidewall. For example, the code 0910 means that the production date was on the ninth week in year 2010. The tire can be used for around 3 years. If more, then the elasticity will decrease and tend to harden. That tire will have to be quickly replaced in order to avoid a blown tire. It necessary to know the tire’s age when you buy a new tire. Don’t forget to ask to the store service and make a note of the purchase date so you won’t forget
