2.6. Check of tires


Types and causes of wear of a protector of the tire

1. Insufficient pressure in tires
2. Side wear of a protector
(Insufficient pressure in the tire)
(Deformation of disks or tires)
(Wear of steering drafts or pendular lever)
(Wear of details of a forward suspension bracket)
3. Wear because of elevated pressure in tires
4. Cross angular wear because of the wrong convergence of wheels
5. Uneven wear because of violation of a convergence of wheels or a corner of a longitudinal inclination of an axis of turn

Check of depth of a protector

Check of pressure in the tire



1. Care of tires comes down to check of depth of a protector, pressure in tires (it is checked on cold tires), to identification of traces of abnormal wear and damages by which it is possible to determine a condition of details of a forward suspension bracket and steering.
2. In case of pressure drop improve a gate zolotnik in the tire.
3. If air through the gate does not pass, then establish the place of a leak, having sprayed the tire soap solution.
4. Regularly delete the stones or sharp objects which got stuck in a protector. Periodically remove wheels and clear external and internal surfaces of a disk of dirt. If there are doubts concerning consequences of any found damages, then address for consultation in a shinoremontny workshop. Rearrange wheels with the specified frequency (see subsection 2.14).
