are the major component of any mobile device, it doesn’t only help in the of such device but also assists in suspending the device above the ground thereby eliminating major vibrations from affecting the two parts in contact with each other, i.e. vibrations from the ground not affecting the device and vice versa.
Since every mobile object will require tires, it is expedient to look into the technology surrounding the tires, its maintenance, functions, common , and repairs.
THE MAKING OF
are made from synthetic materials or polymers, refining residues, latex from rubber trees, and other artificial materials formed as a result of modern technology. The making of involves the heating process of the needed raw materials in the absence of oxygen and reacting it with the needed addictive at the hot ensuring the process is shielded from atmospheric air and pressure. Afterward, it is put into molds and hence are formed after allowing it to cool to atmospheric .
There are two major types of and they are; TUBELESS and NON-TUBELESS the former doesn’t require tubes in it while the later requires tubes inside to function effectively this simply means that the materials and manufacturing process of the two types will vary.
The major way to maintain tires is to ensure its pressure is maintained during operations by not exceeding it or allowing it to operate under the stipulated pressure. Another means of maintenance is to avoid exposing the to higher temperatures than specified by the manufacturers during the course of its service. The expiring date of the must be observed and it must be changed to avoid being taken unaware. Any early visible damage to the must be repaired especially if such has the tendency of increasing under higher and pressure.
It suspends mobile equipment, vehicles, and heavy mobile generators from the ground.
It absorbs the vibrations coming from both sides having contact with it.
It acts to establish frictions with the running surfaces.
It makes it possible to move the device.
It improves safety due to it flexible features compared to metal (iron & steel) rollers or wheels.
It increases the speed of the of devices it’s attached.
COMMON FAULTS OF AND THEIR REPAIR
This can happen as a result of various defects, but your are one of them. Do you often notice your wobbling especially at low speeds? It might be your .Get it checked and possibly replaced.
Just like bulges don’t ignore cracks, no matter how small it is, change the as soon as possible.
This is one you should NEVER ignore. It usually looks like a blister or “boil” on the , this is a sure sign that you need to change your .
4. Tread Depth
The “lines” or “zig-zags” (the treads) on your have to have enough depth to attain enough friction of the road, especially for braking. The tread should never be less than 1/16th of an inch in depth, if it is or visibly very low, you need to change your .
5. Outer-edge Wear
Have you noticed the outer edges of your are too smooth, you need a change! The edges also have a role to play in maintaining an adequate amount of friction.
