The condition of your tyres tells a lot about you and your car. Dirty and unkempt tyres make your car less appealing. Keeping them clean makes it eye-catching and presentable. People will always notice and appreciate clean and well-kept wheels.
The way your drive has a lot to do with how fast the treading on your tyres wears out. Worn out tyre tread does more harm than giving your car a bad look. It makes driving unsafe since the grip needed for stability becomes insufficient. However, there are several things that you can do to reduce the rate of tyre damage.
Sudden spinning and breaking quickly damages tyre treads. It is best to apply sudden brakes only for safety purposes. You should start to apply breaks from a distance of between 5 and 10 metres away from the car in front of you. Releasing the clutch when applying fuel to the engine prevents spinning.
Do you desire glossy and good looking tyres? This can be achieved through application of a protectant, also known as dressing. Many car dealers use this substance to make cars shinier and more appealing. However, this layer does more than that. It protects the rubber from toxic air pollution and the sun’s UV radiation. These two factors significantly contribute to the degradation of the quality of the tyres’ rubber surface.
Sunlight quickly damages the rubber on the tyres, making it delicate. Damaged rubber is unable to withstand increased pressure. Therefore, it is more likely to break. Through dressing, you add a protective layer that prevents any dirt or oil from sticking onto the surface of your tyre. This layer is not greasy. Instead, it is designed to increase the stability and grip of the tyre to the road. You are therefore less likely to spin out of control.
In order to clean your tyres perfectly, you need a high pressure cleaning hose, your most preferable cleaning detergent and a clean piece of cloth. Hose down the tires first. This should remove any dirt and residue. It is easy and fast. Then apply the wheel detergent. Removal of oils requires more than just water. The detergent should do it perfectly. Use a brush to scrub the tyres. Clean the crevices and treads thoroughly. After rinsing, use the piece of cloth to remove all the water on the rim. This should leave it looking clean and shiny.
Your status determines how the society treats you. Good car maintenance is easy. However, it has the ability to boost your status. For every driver, the tyres are one of the most important car parts. They save you a lot on fuel, especially whenever there is a slope to climb. You should keep them clean and well-maintained.
