When you drive the fleet, it’s the Tyres which that stays in direct contact with the road. When you want to stop the fleet, it’s the Tyres on which the brakes are applied. When Tyres are the only component that stays in direct contact with the road then why its maintenance is overlooked? Excellent maintenance of Tyres is crucial for safety and when the matter is of safety, We at FLEECA are sure you would read and apply the following Tyres safety tips:
Tyre Inspection: Regular inspection of Tyres increase the life of Tyres considerably. By regular inspection you come to know the potential problems that may require professional intervention, you also able to take calls timely so you can avoid major expenses later. We suggest that inspect all the Tyres once a month as well as before and after long journeys.
Tyre pressure: A Tyre does not have to look flat to be underinflated. Even a proper good Tyre can be underinflated as per the standards. Thereby, it is always recommended to check the air pressure of Tyres at quick intervals. If you are not sure of what exactly the air pressure should be for your fleet then ask some experts. We also recommend that check the air pressure of Tyres when they are cold. Both over and under-inflated Tyres significantly shorten the life span of Tyres as well as increase their wear-tear.
Tread depth: What is tread depth? Tread depth is a vertical measurement between the top surface of the Tyre to the deepest of its groves. it is clearly stated that when tread depth comes to a minimum of 1.6 mm then one should refrain using such Tyres. An insufficient tread depth definitely increases the risk on the road and to avoid this, you must periodically get the Tyres checked at nearby Tyre service center.
Tyre alignment: Generally, when a Tyre is worn out more on one edge then it is a result of poor Tyre alignment. For Tyre alignment, you need to visit the right Tyre service center and get it done as prescribed.
Tyre balancing: Vibration while running is a sign of unbalanced wheels. To avoid any kind of mechanical damage, visit the Tyres service center for proper wheel alignment services.
Tyre rotation: Rotating your Tyres help achieve even wear and tear. For that matter, it even helps in smooth handling of the fleet and good Tyre life ahead. As a leading Tyre care organization, we would suggest getting the Tyres rotated at every second oil change.
Tyre replacement: The life of a Tyre varies. It indeed depends on your driving habits, the climate you drive in and how well you take care of them. Eventually, all Tyres are worn out and you need to get them replaced, it’s just that it should be done at the right time and from the right Tyres service center.
Spare Tire: Probably nobody will tell you to pay attention to the spare Tyre but we would say that if not regularly, at least once in a while check your Tyres too. Make sure it’s in a good condition so that in case if you need to change the Tyre of your fleet on the highway, you don’t feel stuck.
