Most men believe that ladies and cars do not go together and that is why when it comes to cars and tyres it’s only the men folk who take decisions. Well Athenas, it’s time to switch gears.
The first and foremost thing to remember is that the tyre is not just a rubber circle, it’s an engineering marvel and there are a whole lot of ingredients involved in the making of a tyre. Some of these ingredients are steel plies (skeleton of the tyres), nylon threads (muscles), silica (flesh), carbon blacks (skin) etc.
The next thing is you should know is the size of your car tyres. You will find it on the sidewall of the tyre. It will constitute of three parts. For example if the size is 155/70 R 13, then 155 is the width of the tyre, 70 stands for 70% of 155 which is the height of the sidewall and then finally 13 which stands for the diameter in inches.
Each car can be fit with only a few sizes of tyres. The brand that you pick always depends on what you want from your tyres. While buying tyres you need to keep safety, car handling, fuel efficiency, comfort and tyre life in mind.
Which brings us to the next question, when is it time to change tyres. If the tread depth is below 1.66mm, it’s time to change your car tyres. If you want to check the tread depth pick up a one rupee coin and put it in between the tread , if you can see the entire word “INDIA” written on the outer cirle of the coin the it’s time for you to change tyres. The second thing is rubber life is only four years….if you haven’t changed tyres in the last four years, you are driving a tyre which is past its expiry date and can burst open at any time. A small tip when you are replacing tyres; always change in even numbers (2 or 4) unless you have broken a single tyre and are replacing it.
