Advantages of Radial tires and Considerations When Using Them
Ⅰ. The definition of radial tires
Radial and bias tires are a structural form of tires, which are different from bias tires, arch tires, and pressure-regulated tires. The international code for radial tires is "R", commonly known as "wire tires". Our company offers radial snow tires.
Ⅱ. Advantages of radial tires
1. As a tire solution, radial tire has large ground contact area, good adhesion, small tread slip and small unit pressure on the ground, so it has small rolling resistance and long service life.
2. The crown of radial tires is thick and has a hard belt, so it is not easy to get pierced. The deformation of radial tire is small when driving, and the fuel consumption can be reduced by 3%~8%.
3. Because the tire cord and the sidewall is thin, the radial tire has large radial elasticity, good cushioning performance and large load capacity.
4. Radial tire has good heat dissipation performance and can adapt to high temperature and high-speed driving.
5. Tax preference: since January 1st, 2001, radial tire is exempt from consumption tax.
Ⅲ. Precautions when using radial tires
1. Tire assembly: radial tire cannot be used together with other types of tires on the same vehicle, especially it is not allowed to be used on the same axle with other tires.
2. Tire pressure: radial tire should be inflated according to the specified standard. When its inflation pressure is the same as that of ordinary tire, it will appear to be under inflated.
3. Vehicle toe-in: when the front wheel of a car is refitted from ordinary tire to radial tire, the toe-in should be reduced accordingly.
4. Driving operation: when driving a vehicle equipped with radial tires, start slowly and brake steadily. When turning, passing other cars or driving on uneven road, please slow down. Overtaking is allowed only on wide road section. Don't jerk the steering wheel.
5. Carcass protection: radial tire has thin sidewall and are easy to get deformed and scratched.
