Customer Education Tips

To obtain maximum life and performance, tyre/tube care and maintenance is very important. For proper tyre/tube care & maintenance, United Tyre Associates recommends the following:

1. Proper Tyre Mounting & De-Mounting

For optimum radial advantage, mount vehicle with full set of Company radials at both axles and at spare position. Mix use of bias and radial tyres on the same vehicle is not recommended. Always use a new tube for a new tyre. Tyres/Tubes should be of the same brand. Always use a designated tube for the particular type and size of tyre being used.
Always mount tyres on correct sized rim. Rim should be free of dirt and rust.Rim valve hole should be round and smooth. Clean tyre interiors before placing the tube inside. Lubricate tyre beads with mild soap solution before mounting and de-mounting.Before starting to inflate the tyre, check whether the beads are seating correctly on the rim seats.
Never exceed 44psi (3.0 kgf/ cm2) to seat the beads. After beads are seated adjust inflation pressure to the inflation pressure recommended by vehicle manufacturer.
2. Tyre Balancing
An un-balanced wheel may cause vibration to the vehicle. So it is recommended to balance tyre-rim assembly if some vibrations are felt, or after every 5000 kms.
3. Tyre Rotation
Rotate tyre positions in a criss-cross manner, if an irregular wear is found on any of the tyre or after every 5000 kms. The first rotation is important as it sets the stage for long and even tyre wear.
4. Wheel Alignment
Always maintain proper wheel alignment.
5. Daily Tyre Check
Every morning before starting the vehicle, check the exterior of your tyre. If the damages exposing the ply cord and/ or steel belt is visible, remove the tyre and consult with a tyre specialist. Remove stones or nails which are entrapped in the tread of the tyre.

6. Tyre Change

The tyre being used currently should be replaced with a new tyre when the tread wear indicator (1.6mm height) is exposed.
