After the new car has passed the running-in period, many car owners will begin to consider upgrading the tires to improve the handling and driving pleasure of the vehicle. However, if the "improper upgrade" will leave a safety hazard to the car. The reporter recently interviewed the professional masters, who proposed the following upgrade suggestions for the majority of car owners.
It is recommended to have the same specifications as the original matching tires.
The frequency of use of the vehicle and the road conditions it travels are an important basis for choosing to upgrade the tires. If you use the car every day, the wear resistance of the tire may be the most important issue for the owners.
Sports wide tires have good ground adhesion, but wear is also very fast, and in order to pursue speed, the tread pattern will be minimized, so the performance of the tire on the wetland will not be ideal. If the vehicle is often used in rainy and humid areas, a set of wetland tires with wetland adhesion and drainage performance should be a good choice.
Because vehicle manufacturers are equipped with tires for their vehicles, they will save costs at the expense of some of the performance of the tires for overall cost considerations. Therefore, most consumers carry out tire upgrades, which is actually an upgrade of the control level and quality. It is generally recommended to replace tires of the same specifications but higher grades as the original matching tires, such as using higher speed tires or using higher level tires, which is a common upgrade. The improvement in vehicle performance they bring is not possible with the original tires.
Select the same pattern tire
Experts remind all car owners to pay attention to the choice of tires of the same pattern when upgrading tires to ensure safe driving after the upgrade.
If the tire wear degree, structure and specifications are inconsistent, it will not only affect the service life of the tire, but more importantly, it will cause the brake resistance of the car to be inconsistent. When the car needs a sudden braking at high speed, the resistance of the tire is different, which makes the four wheels have uneven force. It is very easy to cause traffic accidents caused by the loss of control of the vehicle. So remember, don't "mix and match" when upgrading tires, you should choose the same pattern of tires, this is the correct upgrade method.
