Car tires are a component that has a high workload. Because car tires are always contact with the road, the rubber on the tire surface will thin out.
That is what makes car tires have a usage limit.
However, the usage limit of each car is different. So that time cannot be used as a benchmark for measuring tire life.
To find out the usage limit of a tire, we can rely on the distance the tire has traveled. Of course it is more accurate.
Of course, the mileage that can be covered by each tire is different. It depends on the quality of each tire and how the driver drives the vehicle. Some tires only last around 40,000 KM, but others can last much further.
In general, tires can still be used safely at 30,000 - 60,000 KM.
How about further?
The tires can still be used, but the quality of the tires has decreased significantly. So that the tires are prone to leaks and prone to slippage, it reduces driving safety.
Another thing that can be used to find out when to change tires is by looking at the condition of the tires.
1.Thread wear indicator
Tire thread is a kind of trench on the tire surface which serves to increase tire traction on the road. So that the tires do not easily slip even on wet roads.
The depth of this tread can be an indicator of tire quality. The further the tire is used, the surface of the tire will be eroded so that the thread will be shallower.
When the thread is disguised with the tire surface it can be a sign that the tire needs to be replaced.
2.Bubble on the tire wall
Crack in tires reduce tire quality. For example, when you find bubbles on the tire walls, it's better to replace the tires.
When there is a bubble on the tire wall, the tire has a greater potential to explode.
3. Vehicle is going in either direction
The front tires are also used as output to control the direction of the vehicle. When the surface of the tires is crack, steering problems will occur.
For one thing, the vehicle is turn in a direction. It indicates uneven tire wear on one of the tires.
4.Vibration and noise
Vibration and noise are synonymous with suspension system problems. However, tires can also cause vibration and noise.
So when these symptoms appear, in addition to checking the suspension system, check the tires. If the tire wear is uneven, then it's time to replace the tire.
This things shorten the life of the tires
1.Under pressure & over pressure
When a tire is forced to run in under pressure or over pressure, it will have an impact on the tire surface.
Under pressure causes the surface of the tire wear out faster. While over pressure causes the center of the tire surface wear out faster.
When you frequently brake suddenly, or drift frequently, it will cause the tires to wear out faster.
3. Use of tires on inappropriate terrain
Road tires are different from dirt road tires. If you force a tire to be used on an improper road, the tire will quickly crack. So that the general tires are shorter.
4.Poor tire quality
What should not be forgotten, if you want tires that are safe and durable, you must choose tires with the best quality.
There are many tires that have good quality, but generally quality tires are cost expensive.
So if you choose a tire at a low price, then don't be surprised if the tire is showing signs of being replaced in a short time.
