How is your car? Is the engine working powerfully?
Do you wash the car, refuel, and check the engine oil, cooling water, tire pressure, etc. before going out? Trouble on the go is the worst.
Typical car troubles on the highway are "overheat" and "flat tires".
For those who use the highway frequently, checking the cooling water, or "cleaning", can prevent most of the overheating.
However, the prevention of flat tire is prevented by the usual "driving method".
1. Flat tire on the highway
The reason why there are many flat tire troubles on the highway is that you are entering the highway without knowing it with tires that are already flat.
Even if you step on a nail or screw and get a flat tire, if the air is not deflated, you are supposed to drive every day without knowing that it is a flat tire.
Then, when the tires are worn out, you will notice that the air has escaped, and when the tires rotate at high speed on the highway, the nails and screws will come off due to centrifugal force, and the nose air will come out and you will have a flat tire.
Therefore, when checking the air pressure, it is also necessary to check the tread surface of the tire.
2. Why does the flat tire?
Why do you get a flat tire?
Just stepping on a nail or screw will almost never stick to the tire. Stepping on a lying nail or screw from above is no different than stepping on a pebble. It is flipped up and rolled by the momentum stepped on. At this time, if you are unlucky and step on the pointed nail or screw in the direction of sticking to the tire, you will get a flat tire.
The basic rear tire of a car running normally has a flat tire.
That's right, "the nails and screws that bounced up in front stick in later" is common.People who often "flat tire in front" often say, "The distance between cars are short."
Your front tire is flat tire the nails and screws that the front car bounced up.
Also, the nails and screws that everyone stepped on and bounced off were thrown away and eventually fell toward the end of the road. Like pebbles and trash on the side of the road.
And compared to the surrounding cars, the car on the right side and the left side has more flat tires. It's easier to get a flat tire if you drive in a way that disturbs the convoy.
3. Keep in mind flat tire prevention driving
What is flat tire prevention driving?
"Ensure a sufficient distance between vehicles and drive in line with the vehicle in front."
"Do not drive on steps or cat's eyes"
It is driving that keeps these two things in mind. Yes, driving safely will prevent flat tires.
"Where was the flat tire?"
"Is the side of the tire cut or bulging like a lump?"
I haven't had a flat tire for over 10 years.
For those who often get a flat tire, please remember your usual driving such as "parking on the street", "distance between cars", and "disturbing the convoy".
Car trouble is a barometer of your driving and how you use your car.
To prevent troubles, keep in mind "care" and "safe driving".
