Commercial tires contribute to fleet performance and cost you more or less depending on how you take care of them. Tire maintenance protects your investment by extending the life of your tires. Correct tire pressure, regular rotation, and weight balancing tires contributes toward greater tire longevity and performance.
Tire Pressure: Check tire pressure to for the proper inflation level. Underinflation causes excess heat, uneven tire wear, and decreased braking and handling capabilities, which may cause structural failures like blowouts and tread separation. Properly inflated tires maximize tread life, improve handling, and increase fuel efficiency and overall driver safety.
Tire Rotation: Follow proper tire rotation schedules. Routine tire rotations equalize and enhance front-to-rear and side-to-side tire wear. Remember: tire rotation won't prevent or circumvent wear issues caused by worn mechanical components.
Tire Balance: Balance tires and wheels as necessary. An out-of-balance tire/wheel assembly may be detected in bumps that become more noticeable at higher speeds. Balancing tires is necessary during initial installation and during a remount.
Be mindful of abnormal tire wear or damage to your tires. Watch for signs of punctures, embedded objects, cracks, and bulges.
Take these tips into consideration when servicing your commercial tires. The Rubber Manufacturer's Association (RMA) recommends taking five minutes each month to check your tires. Other mechanical issues may contribute to uneven tire wear, and need correction in order to maximize fleet tire life and commercial truck performance.
By taking proper care of your semi-truck tires, you can experience the benefits of better fuel economy, and extend tire life.
