It is a common and general question that strikes every individual mind, but the answer to it never satisfies anyone. Even if there is an answer to it, it does not appease a person as the details are not clear to the other person. There are a few questions that are left unanswered about the life span of the tyres. Several factors affect the life of the tyres. According to the manufacturer’s the general life span of a tire should be around 40,000 km, but that’s not necessary, it can be a bit up or down as well. The factors on which the life of a tyre depends are some under the control of the driver, and there are a few factors that are not in anybody’s control. Tyre manufacturers do not guarantee an exact period for your tyres, but they do guarantee an estimated period. Factors like driving habits, climatic conditions, type of roads, Terrain, alignment and balancing, pressure etc. A few of these factors are discussed below in short.
• Driving Habits– This is the one factor that is completely under the control of the driver. The way the driver drives the vehicle affects the lifespan of the tyres. So if your Tyres Blandford produces screeching rubber sounds, you take corners hard, you spin the wheels, the life of the tyres could be at stake. If your driver chooses aggressive driving rather than defensive driving, then you will have to get your tires replaced again and again and frequently than usual.
• Terrain– City streets or the freeway, the area where you live matters a lot, it helps in knowing the life of your tyres, for example, if the area you live in has uneven roads and pathways then driving on that uneven terrain the tyres may get destructed, it can cause bulges cracks and cuts which can further reduce the life of your tyres. Roads that have potholes, crumbly edges, rocks on them also lead to vibration in your car tyres, which can further lead to poor handling of your tyres, further leading to poor handling of your vehicle resulting from minor to major accidents. The condition of your road surface, whether it is good or bad, has a long way effect on the lifespan of your tyres.
• Correct Tyre Pressure– trust the fact or not, tyre pressure is one most important thing that affects the life of your tyres. It is the most crucial factor that one should consider for their car tyres. The amount of tyre pressure should be correct, firstly for safety and secondly, for long-lasting tyre tread. Under the pressure system, two things should be kept in mind, first overinflation and second, under inflation. If your tyre is overinflated due to a high amount of pressure, then it will become rigid and stiff which will further damage it, as it moves on rough and uneven roads with curbs, potholes, rocks and sharp objects like nails, glass etc.
• Alignment & Balancing– in normal human life, almost everything requires balancing. Working of a human body, walking, diet, office work, family, friendship and many more, all these things require balancing in our day-to-day life. Not only this, but your car tyres also require proper alignment and balancing, otherwise, they will offer you bad results, it creates bad vibrations in your tyres. It results in poor handling of your Goodyear Tyres Blandford. An unbalanced tyre results in uneven wear and more continual replacements than usual. Misaligned wheels mean all your vehicle’s wheels running in separate and different directions. Unbalanced and misaligned wheels wear out at a faster rate. So, you should give them a regular or a routine checkup to avoid any kind of difficulties in driving. Get your wheels alignment and balancing checked after every 10,000 miles. Also, you should get your wheels rotated after every 10,000 km.
