Precautions You Should Follow While Fitting Your Car’s Tyres

by Dean Jones Auto Services

Your car is a collection of hundreds of components, all working together in perfect synchronisation. Even the slightest mistake during fitting or replacing a simple part, like its tyres, can end up with disastrous results.

Fortunately, as its owner, you only have to follow some simple precautions while tyre fitting in Longton. Not only these will ensure a spotless job, but will also ensure that your car’s tyres stay in proper working condition for a much longer time.

Here are some of the things you should keep in mind.

  1. External damage

Before you reinstall your car’s tyres in Longton or anywhere else in the UK, make sure that the rim is in perfect condition. Everyday driving exerts extreme strain on all 4 of your car’s rims. Going over a speed breaker at high speeds, accidentally riding the foot walk, etc. can warp (in extreme cases chip or crack) your car’s rims. Any such issues can damage its tyre’s outer casing and cause it to separate from the inner ply.

Also, remember to clean the rims off of any dirt, grease or rust before fitting a new tyre.

  1. Condition of its valves

Tyre valves can get damaged if they are pushed against the valve hole, or if the tube is pulled by the valve stem. It can separate the unit from its rubber o-ring or create tiny fissures in its casing. These can manifest into leaks over time.

Take extra care while tyre fitting in Longton to ensure that the area around the valve stem is free of rust or any dirt. Also, during fitting or removing of tyres, use a valve retainer to dislodge it from the rim carefully.

  1. Lubrication

You should always apply a generous amount of tyre grease while tyre fitting in Longton for easy fitting of a unit. The beads and rim flanges should be properly lubricated so that the outer casing does not get damaged during installation. Lubrication also prevents rust formation on your car’s rims and offers an extra layer of protection to the tyre beads.

  1. Air refilling

The air used to refill your car’s tyres post installation should be moist free and clean. Moisture inside a tyre’s carcass will decrease the service life of that unit significantly.

You can opt to fill your car’s tyres with nitrogen instead of pressurised air. Nitrogen usually has a smaller chance of water retention and expands a lot less during rapid heating and cooling. It exerts less pressure on the casing and prevents chances of a sudden blowout.

  1. Equipment

You should always use the correct equipment to remove or fit your car’s tyres in Longton or anywhere else in the UK. You can also take your vehicle to a reputed car service garage for the process. Garages like Harvey Tyres follow industry recommended methods and use cutting-edge tools to service your vehicle. They also have a vast collection of tyres from reputed brands like Michelin, Dunlop and Continental that you can choose from.

Tyre fitting can be a lengthy chore; however, following these simple steps and taking necessary precautions will ensure you do it correctly without damaging any component.
