Maximizing Tire Life

Why Should We Perform Regular Tire Pressure Checks?

Tire Pressure will naturally decrease over time.
New tire will decrease 70 kPa (0.7 kgf/cm2) within a month.

Importance of Regular
Tire Pressure Inspection

Dangers of Low Tire Pressure

Abnormal Shoulder Wear On Both Sides

Deformed Sidewalls (Steel Wire Detaches From Rubber)

Sidewalls Easily Broken

Increased Fuel Consumption
Dangers of High Tire Pressure
1. Tire Damage
  • • Decreased buffering capacity and shock resistance leads to more broken steel wires or tire blowouts
  • • Smaller contact area between tire and the ground leads to faster wear, especially in the center, resulting in shorter tire life
  • • Increased skidding
2. Road Damage
  • • High tire pressure without overloading, will damage the road due to the effects of force and counterforce

3. Rim Damage
  • • High tire pressure causes greater vibration which leads to rim damage

4. Vehicle Component Damage
  • • High tire pressure increases vibrations and damages vehicle components, while proper tire pressure has better buffering capacity

When the tire pressure is maintained at 10kg/cm², tire life can be extended by 40%

Purpose of Tire Rotation
  • 1. Shoulder and bead failure becomes a concern when transporting heavy cargo. Proper tire rotation can extend tire life.
  • 2. Partial Wear at a Fixed Position

Tire Rotation Method

1. First Rotation: perform 2-3 rotations until the tires are completely worn
2. Second Rotation: if possible, rotate tires between different axles for better results
When using dual tires, the inner tires usually bear more weight and absorb more heat from the brake drums.

Key Points of Tire Rotation
  • 1. Change the rolling direction
  • 2. Rotate between front wheels, trailer wheels, and drive axels
  • 3. Tire rotation frequency should be higher during the initial stage of wear
Effects of Tire Rotation
