Tyre Care

1. MEASURING TREADWEAR

The tread of a tyre determines how a tyre grips the road surface. The tread depth of a tyre is a critical aspect of ensuring safety and maneuvering. The function of tread grooves is to disperse water from under the tyre while in motion. The more tread depth, the better control and lesser risk and better life of the tyre.

2. TYRE PRESSURE

Maintaining right tyre pressure along with regular maintenance of the vehicle contribute towards the life of a tyre. Resulting in better fuel efficiency and control of the vehicle driving. It,s advisable to check tyre pressure, that of the spare on routine basis and before long journeys, preferably when the tyre are cold.

Underinflated tyres increases tread wear on the tyre´s edges and generate excessive heat while in motion. The tyres go soft, increases rolling resistance and reducing fuel economy. Overinflated tyre, on the other hand, increases wear on the centre tread.

The tyre is cold. The tyre is cold when your motorcycle has not been ridden for more than 2 hrs. Always remove a tyre from service once the wear level reaches to tread wear indication bar located in grooves of the tyre ( the height of tread wear indicator is 0.8 mm).

3. WHEEL BALANCING

An out of balance wheel may cause uneven, rapid tread wear on your tyres and also causes vibration while driving your vehicle. Keeping your wheels in good balance cuts down vibration and averts premature wear of the tyre treads. It also helps extend the life of the vehicle´s steering system, suspension and bearings.if on area of your vehicle feels heavier or lighter than others, it´s a cue that your wheels may be out of balance. it´s advisable to go for wheels balancing each time a tyre is replaced, a balance weight is moved or when you put new tyres.

4. VALVE INSPECTION

Valves and valve caps ensure an airtight seal in your tyre and are critical to maintaining proper tyre pressure over longer periods. They are an inexpensive way to ensure longer tyre life and driving safety. Usually made of rubber, valves and their components are subject to deterioration, cracking and bending over time . when you drive at high speeds a weakened valve can lead to air loss compromising safety. Ensure the placement of valve cap at all times. It is recommended to have periodic checking of valve of tyre-rim assembly and replacing the valve as soon any cracks are observed.

5. MAXIMUM TYRE SPEED

Riding at high speed is dangerous, and can cause a motorcycle accident, including serious personal injury or death. The speed can vary depending on traffic, weather, vehicle, road conditions or permitted by low. No tyre, regardless of its desing or speed rating, has unlimited capacity for speed and a sudden failure can occur if its limits are exceeded. Never exceed the speed in comparison to maximum speed rating stamped on the tyre sidewall of your tyre or the maximum vehicle speed rating, whichever is less.

6. CORRECT FITMENT

Always ensure that two wheeler is equipped with the tyre size specified by motorcycle manufacturer in owner´s manual or manufacturer´s website. It is extremely important that the proper size of rim is used for your tyre. Be sure to match your tyre size against the size mentioned on rim.

7. LOAD ON TYRE

Riding your motorcycle in an overloaded condition is dangerous. Overloading causes excessive heat to build up in your tyres. This can lead to sudden tyre failure and serious personal injury or death while the tyre is overloaded. Never exceed the maximum load rating stamped on the tyre sidewall of your tyre or the maximum vehicle load rating, whichever is less.
