Recommended periodicity: each 400 km of run or weekly.
Check of a condition of tyres — the important element of preventive maintenance which can give the information on a condition of a steering and suspension brackets of the car and to prevent serious damages.
Depth of a protector is measured by the simple measuring tool — глубиномером. When depth of a protector reaches a minimum established by the legislation or the manufacturer of tyres, replace tyres.
At survey of tyres mark any abnormal deterioration of a protector. Signs of non-uniform deterioration of a protector, such as step deterioration of paths of a protector, spotty deterioration of a protector and the strengthened deterioration on the one hand wheels, specify in infringement of corners of installation of wheels and / or balancing. At detection of any of these signs of non-uniform deterioration find the reason and immediately eliminate. Too the high pressure in tyres is at the bottom of the accelerated deterioration of an average part of a protector, coupling with road is thus weakened, decreases амортизирующее action of the tyre and danger of rupture of the tyre increases. Regularly check absence on tyres of cuts or swellings, especially on lateral surfaces. Delete the stones which have got stuck in a protector or sharp subjects. Periodically remove wheels and clear external and internal surfaces of a wheel of a dirt. Signs of infringement of balancing of wheels usually are vibration of a body of the car (for the speed about 90 km/h) though in most cases vibration is felt through a steering wheel. Keep in mind that deterioration or damage of details of a steering and a suspension bracket can become the reason of the strengthened deterioration of tyres. Non-uniform deterioration of forward tyres specifies in infringement of corners of installation of wheels.
Regularly check pressure in tyres, support pressure at normal level. Check pressure upon cold tyres before a trip or after a while after it.
If pressure of air in tyres falls, first of all check up tyres on presence of punctures or cuts. If the tyre has no defects, check up a condition and reliability of an inhaling of a zolotnik. For simplification of search of leaks of air put on a place of prospective leak a soap solution. In the presence of leak the soap solution will start to bubble.
Carefully examine an internal lateral surface of each tyre on presence on it of traces of a brake liquid. If traces of a brake liquid are visible, immediately check up a condition of wheel brake mechanisms.
