Taking care of our tires
You might be wondering how should we take care of our car? Tires are often the most overlooked parts of the car. Normally, we wait for our car mechanics to inform us that our car tires have worn down to almost the legal limit or we wait until the tire looks deflated before we start paying attention to it.
The stresses that the tires go through in our daily commute is immense. Not only does it have to provide you with grip during acceleration or braking, it also have to keep the car pointing in the direction you want it to when the car is making a turn. Countering the centrifugal forces that is being placed on your car.
Contrary to popular believe, majority of tires bursting open while you’re driving along the expressway is not due to over-inflation of tires. Rather it is due to under-inflation. When your tires is below the recommended pressure, the tire’s sidewall deforms more when you are driving. This continuous flexing motion causes heat to build up in the tires. Causing it to burst open while you’re driving at high speed. Not only does it Increase the risk of losing your beloved car, serious injuries can also occur to occupants if you were to lose control of your car. Not a very smart way to start with how to take care of my car.
Tire manufacturers often put tires to extreme test, ensuring that it is able to bring us to our destination safely. However, we could extend the lifespan of our car tires just by a simple act of checking the tire pressure every month.
