1.2.1.7.8.1. Types of wear of a protector

GENERAL INFORMATION

Side wear of a protector


Low pressure in the tire (wear from two parties)


Low pressure in the tire leads to continuous deformation of the tire and неправиль to Nome to contact of the tire with the surface of the road. At the same time the cord of the tire strongly wears out and coupling of the tire with a paving decreases. Also because of an overheat of the tire there can be its gap.

Wrong corner of disorder (wear on the one hand)

It is necessary to make repair of a suspension bracket.

Overcoming turns at a high speed


It is necessary to reduce speed on turns.

Wear of a protector in the center


High pressure in the tire

With a pressure in the tire norms are much higher, there is an intensive wear of a protector in the center of the tire, coupling of the tire with a paving decreases, the tire does not extinguish roughness of the road therefore all blows are transferred to a body and the probability of a rupture of the tire increases.

Check and bring to norm pressure in tires

In certain cases it is necessary to increase pressure in tires, in particular, at the movement at high speeds or with big loading, at the same time do not forget to bring pressure to norm at normal operation of the car.

Uneven wear


Tires on forward wheels can unevenly wear out from communication with not coaxiality of wheels. At the same time it is necessary to adjust the angles of installation of wheels.

Wheels are not balanced

Balance wheels.
