FAQ

Why is liquid ballasting done in tyres?

Sometimes, your tractor needs extra weight to improve traction in severe conditions or to reduce tyre slippage.
When adding weight, it is necessary to lower the centre of gravity, at the same time, to ensure stability.
Adding tyre fluids helps in gaining more traction weight and an increased counterbalance. It lowers the centre of gravity of the vehicle and so reduces the possibility of tipping.

What are the must do’s for storing tyres?

  1. Store clean and dry tyres
  2. Store the tyres in a cool and dry place indoors
  3. Protect the tyres from sunlight, heat and liquids – also frost
  4. Don't store the tyres in the same room with ozone-generating machines
  5. Upright position is the best. If the tyres are mounted on rims, store them stacked. Reduce inflation pressure first.
     

Can tyres be stored outdoors?

Outdoors is not good for storing tyres.Avoid any place that could get hot or wet,or too cold.

What are the Top things to remember while inflating tyres?

  1. Check that the tyre is correctly mounted and the beads are in the right positions
  2. Use a safety cage
  3. Use safety goggles, safety shoes and safety earmuffs
  4. Use inflation guns with a minimum 5 m long extension tube
  5. See the inflation pressure recommendations in your tyre manufacturer's manual
  6. Never stand in front of the wheel!

What if the vehicle is seldom used?

If the vehicle is not used for a long time, the rubber of its tyres may crack more quickly than if they were frequently run. Make sure that there is no extra load on the tyres and keep them away from direct sunlight. Cracking of the sidewall rubber indicates aging and must be checked by tyre professionals.

How can I make sure that the tyre achieves its planned service time?

Cuts, cracks, punctures or other damages certainly have their effects on the tyre's service time, but the most common causes for premature tyre wear are more mundane - and avoidable. These are: running them at the wrong pressures, operating in poor conditions, and having incorrect wheel alignment.

What should I do if the tyre pressure suddenly drops?

Try to find out the cause of the pressure drop. If the tube is leaking slowly, have the tyre immediately fixed in order to avoid more damage.

Ozone is harmful to the tyre. I store my tyres indoors, can they still be affected by ozone?

Yes, they can! Keep your tyres away from electric motors, central vacuums or any machinery that can generate ozone.

What do I keep in mind before mounting tyres?

Make sure that the rim, the tyre (and the tube) are compatible, and that the tyre is suitable for your machine. Use only rims recommended or permitted by the tyre manufacturer.

  • Check that the tyre can be fitted onto the rim from tyre and equipment specifications.
  • Check the correspondence of rim diameter (DW16L x 30) and tyre diameter (19.4 R30). 

What are the Top 5 things to remember in order to maintain our tyres well?

 

  1. Check your vehicle, loader, tyres and rims visually every time before and after use
  2. Keep them clean
  3. Check the pressure during every service to the tractor
  4. Repair all damages immediately
  5. Correct inflation pressure, right weight distribution and wise driving are keys to the longevity of your tyres!
