Identify The Different Types Of Tyre Wear

Knowing the causes that produce irregular tyre wear  is very important to carry out a previous diagnosis and reduce the time in search of breakdowns in the workshop. Improper tyre alignment is one major causes of tyre wear. But there are other causes of Tyre Wearing. What are they? What are there possible symptoms and how you solve the problems in tyre wear? These questions will be answered in this article.

 

  1. Regular tyre wear

Symptoms: The tyre wears regularly over the entire tread but its tread is less than the legal limit of 1.6mm.

Causes of Regular Tyre Wear: The tyres have not been changed in time.

Solutions: Change the tyres.

  1. Irregular wear on the tyre shoulders

Symptoms of Irregular Wear on the Tyre Shoulders: Both shoulders are worn but not the central part.

Causes of Irregular Wear on the Tyre Shoulders: Insufficient inflation pressure or circulation with excessive loads without adjusting the pressure.

Solutions: Adjust the tire pressure as indicated by the manufacturer and adjust it to the load with which we are going to circulate. It is a good idea to check the tire to see if it has suffered any internal damage.

  1. Wear in the center of the tyre

Symptoms: The tire pattern in the center of the tread is less than on the shoulders.

Causes of wear in the center of the Tyre: Circulation with excessive inflation pressure.

Solutions: Adjust the inflation pressure correctly.

The hydroplaning effect can be produced when driving in this state in addition to increasing the braking distance.

  1. Irregular wear on the outer shoulder of the tyre

Symptoms: The outer shoulder of the tire is worn.

Causes: Excess positive drop, overloaded axles.

Solutions: Adjust the alignment parameters by adjusting the camber or camber.

  1. Irregular wear on the inside shoulder of the tyre

Symptoms: The inner shoulder of the tire is worn.

Causes: Excess negative camber, overloaded axles.

Solutions: Adjust the alignment parameters by adjusting the camber or camber.

  1. Localized wear on the tyre

Symptoms: A localized area of the tire meets the worn tread.

Causes: Emergency braking, skidding, brake failure.

Solutions: Check the brake system and verify that the tyres have not been damaged.

  1. Irregular sawtooth wear

Symptoms: The tread channels of the tyres responsible for draining the water are worn.

Causes: Shock absorbers in poor condition, poor adjustment of the alignment parameters.

Solutions: Check the damping, adjust the alignment parameters, check the tyre pressure and check for damage to it.

  1. Wear diagonally on the tire

Symptoms: Wear appears diagonally on the tyre.

Causes: The wheel is not rolling smoothly or may be bouncing on its sides. Possible causes are: loose running gear, bad tire mounting, unbalanced, worn shock absorbers, etc.

Solutions: Adjust rolling, check the correct mounting of the wheel and tire, check the proper design of the tire with the vehicle.

  1. Flank bulge

pneumatic bulging

Symptoms: The tire has a bulge on the sidewall.

Causes: A strong impact against a curb, pothole or other element.

Solutions: Replace the tyre.

  1. Irregular tread wear

uneven tyre wear

Symptoms: The tread shows uneven wear.

Causes: Failures in the ABS system, the brakes lock, unbalanced, deformed or eccentric rim, contamination of chemical agents.

Solutions: Balance the wheel, check the suspension system and alignment parameters.

We must bear in mind that it is very difficult for tires to wear out on a regular basis. Generally the tires of the driving axle tend to have a greater wear.
