爆胎?

Stay calm and move to a safe area away from traffic if possible. If you can not reach a pull-off area, call for help and get a tow, it's way to dangerous to change a flat tire close to traffic. Running on a flat tire will ruin the tire and possibly the wheel if you drive on it long enough.

基本轮胎更改说明:

Always consult your owners manual or instructions with your spare tire. Remove spare tire and jack, making sure you have everything you needed to change the tire. Break loose the lugnuts prior to jacking up the car, do not full remove, just loosen an 1/8 of a turn or less. Jack up car at the recommended spot per your owners manual and remove the lug nuts. Put spare in place and tighten lug nuts as much as possible. Lower jack, and fully tighen lug nuts.

    轮胎和轮胎基础知识,你需要知道什么......

    When shopping for wheels and tires, most people are in the dark about sizing, tread design and wheel construction. In this section of AutoShop101 we take a look at how you can make an educated buying decision when it comes to buying wheels and tires.

    车轮和轮胎为你的车做了什么?

    The wheels and tires are your vehicle's connection to the road. This connection effects handling, ride comfort, braking and even fuel efficiency. If you care about looking good while driving down the street, your wheels and tires can also contribute greatly to the look and style of your ride.

    Before we look at the mechanics involved, let's look at the construction of the typical wheel and tire.

    How are car wheels made?

    汽车和卡车上的大部分车轮由钢或铝制(也称为合金轮)制成。钢轮通常用塑料Hubcap完成,以呈现定制合金轮的外观。合金轮毂通常铸造或锻造和抛光或粉末涂料,以向车轮提供闪亮的表面。一些铝和钢轮,用铬饰面完成,以留下亮度的反射涂层。

    当涉及到成本,钢轮包with the cheapest purchase price. Cast aluminum wheels are the next more costly option with forged and mag wheels leading the pack of the most expensive wheels out there. In general, the larger the wheel, the more it costs. A 15" steel wheel may be $50 and a 22" chrome plated forged alloy wheel may be as much as $600 per wheel!

    How are tires made?

    轮胎由橡胶制成,该橡胶在钢和尼龙带芯上模制。在高压和热量下,橡胶硫化和形成加工到模具中的胎面花纹。制造商改变橡胶化合物的添加剂,以实现处理,湿润/干燥牵引力和乘坐质量。胎面图案也是处理,湿/干牵引力和轮胎的乘坐质量的关键。购买轮胎的诀窍是找到您的车辆和驾驶风格的因素的最佳妥协。与生活中一样,一切都是一个妥协,所以要得到一个伟大的处理轮胎,你可能必须放弃一些乘坐质量或湿牵引力。如果您想要潮湿条件的巨大轮胎,您可能必须放弃干燥的牵引力或所有处理。

    What can go wrong?

    • 爆胎:A flat tire can ruin your day. Nails, debris and even vandals can flatten a tire when you least expect it. Depending on the damage, the tire can be repaired with a patch or plug. If you have a flat, do not drive longer than needed to get to a safe place to change the tire. Before you have a flat tire, make sure you have a properly inflated spare and that you know the proper procedure for changing a spare tire. Once you have the tire changed, take the tire to a trusted tire shop and have it repaired. When properly repaired, a tire can lead a long and happy life, until the tread wears out.
    • 磨损的轮胎:Eventually your tires will wear out, it's just a fact of life. If a tire was able to be made to last forever, it would have to be so hard, as to make ride comfort and handling unbearable. All tires have a wear indicator molded into the tread to let you know when it's time to replace your tires. This wear indicator or wear bar runs across the tire and is about 2/32" above the bottom of the tread pattern. When the tread wears down and this wear bar is flush with the top of the tread, it's time to change your tires. If you have a penny handy, you can use it to check your tread depth. From the edge of the penny to the top of Lincoln's head is about 2/32". So if you stick the penny between the tire tread and some of Lincoln's head is not visible then you have more than 2/32" of tread left. Please be aware that misalignment in your suspension can cause uneven wear, so you should check tread depth and both edges of the tire as well as the middle. Propertire rotation通货膨胀将保持均匀穿的轮胎并防止过早更换。
    • Bent Rim:It only takes a light hit to a curb while parking to bent a steel or alloy wheel. While steel wheels are a little easier to fix, alloy wheels can take a little more skill. If you have a bent rim, it can effect handling and even cause the tire to leak air over time. Check for local wheel repair shops, and evaluate the cost of repair vs. buying a new wheel.
