1.6.35. Tires

Fig. 1.212. A sticker with indications of the recommended pressure in tires

The required air pressure in forward and back tires of your car is given in the plate in a doorway of the driver. Pressure, both in lobbies, and in back tires has to meet standard.
These norms, however, do not belong to a compact spare wheel.

Check of tires
At least once a month check tires: 1) measure pressure by the manometer; if it is necessary, bring it to the provided value (do not forget to check also a spare wheel).
For obtaining exact results pressure of air needs to be measured in cold tires.
Pump up tires gradually, from time to time checking pressure until it reaches necessary value.
Do not allow transfer and not broken download resume of tires.
Nedokachanny tires can change controllability of the car and cause a tire board exit to a rim zakraina that can end with accident or damage of the tire and (or) a disk. Transfer can break off the tire that can cause injuries. The pumped-over tires can also change controllability of the car that can lead to accident.

Fig. 1.213. Indication of wear of tires: 1 indicator of wear; 2 – index of the place of the indicator of wear

Make sure that depth of the drawing of a protector not less than 1,6 mm. For simplification of this check of the tire have wear indicators in a protector. When indicators are visible on a tire racetrack, depth of the drawing of 1,6 mm or is less, and the tire has to be replaced;
Check whether is not present on the tire of traces of abnormal wear, cracks or damages. Tires with cracks or other damages need to be replaced.
Collisions with curbstone and driving through stones lead to damage of tires and knocking down of a convergence of wheels. Regularly check tires and a convergence of wheels.
Check whether nuts of fastening of wheels are tightened.
Check whether is not present in tires of nails, stones, etc.
The car is equipped with tires of one type and the size. It provides good controllability of the car. Never use the tire of the different sizes or types.
Replacement of the established disks of wheels and tires with tires and disks of other brands can change controllability of the car considerably.
Transition to tires of other diameter will lead to a mistake in indications of a speedometer and the odometer.
At all-wheel drive model replacement of one any tire with the tire of other size, and also simultaneous use of raznomarochny tires can put transmission out of action.

Shift of wheels

Fig. 1.214. Scheme of shift of five wheels

Fig. 1.215. Scheme of shift of four wheels

In order to avoid uneven wear and for extension of service life of tires they need to be rearranged as it is specified in drawings. Shift of tires has to be made through each 10 000 km of a run. After shift normalize pressure in forward and back tires.

Shift of 5 wheels
L: wheel at the left R: wheel on the right
Shift of 4 wheels
