Extend heavy truck tire life by applying tire properly

 

Tire retread (tire covering) is also a cost-effective way to extend tire life.

 

The use of repaired tires for three or four times is quite common for fleets.

 

Operating on highways often requires more retread because the truck's tire wear will occur faster in high-friction situations.

 

In general, there is no limit on how many times the tire can be retreaded, provided its tire is in good condition.

 

Bridgestone also has a Bandag technology that helps reduce costs, minimizes the amount of CO2 and industrial waste generated during the manufacturing process.

 

The tires that you sometimes see on the side of the road can't put tires or tires on, because they're tires thrown away by poor maintenance.

 

Finally, the fleet must have its own evaluation and determine the cost effectiveness of the retread for 

heavy truck tire.

 

Inflation for heavy truck tire properly

 

Most tires worn early are the result of abnormal wear, that is, tires worn unevenly on the tire surface.

 

Usually, this is due to improper inflation, misalignment of the wheel, incorrect rotation of the tire or unbalanced tire.

 

Excessive inflation causes premature / uneven wear at the center of the tire and, more seriously, can lead to tire explosion.

 

Inflation under the most common regulations, perpetrators, causing excessive wear on heavy truck tire bodies. It can lead to structural errors, horizontal rupture or tire separation, causing real danger when driving.

 

Tires operating below 80% of the recommended pressure should be inspected and placed in a safety cage when refilled air.

Rotating the heavy truck tires

Rotating the tires will help overcome irregular wear by turning tires from one location to another.

 

A tendency to lead to heavy truck tire wear is determined in part by its position on the vehicle. For example, rear tires tend to wear faster than the previous tires because they tend to be rubbed more.

 

Although the benefits of tire reversal are obvious, the fleet must also consider how to reverse the tire for their vehicle and determine the optimal island time needed to keep the tire healthy without generating unnecessary costs.

 

According to Bridgestone, you should reverse the tire every 5,000 km and regularly check the tires regularly at reputable addresses.
