  1. Wheel alignment
    • It is recommended to have vehicle alignment checked at every 5000 kms or whenever irregular wear or vehicle pulling is noticed.
    • Incase of any accidental vehicle, it is recommended to have proper alignment setting and OR part replacement from authorized franchisee only
  2. Tyre rotation
    • Always ensure to rotate tyre at every 5000 kms or whenever an uneven tread wear is noticed.
    • Always follow vehicle manufacturer’s recommended rotation pattern.
  3. Tyre change:
    • It is not safe to use tyres once tread wear indicator is exposed i.e. at remaining 1.6 mm tread depth.
    • Do not use any tyre with damaged carcass.
  4. Inflation pressure maintenance:
    • Always maintain inflation pressure as per the recommendation of vehicle manufacturer for optimum tyre performance.
    • It is recommended to check inflation pressure in cold condition on at least weekly basis and even more frequently in new tyre for first 3000kms
    • Keep 5 Psi (0.3kg/cm2) more inflation pressure from the recommendation in spare tyre and reduce it to recommended inflation pressure at the time of usage.
    • It is recommended to have 2~3Psi (0.1~0.2kg/cm2) more inflation pressure in tyres of aspect ratio 55 or below.
    • It is recommended to have 5Psi (0.3kf/cm2) more inflation pressure during driving in express highways at high speed to reduce the flat spotting effect.
  5. Wheel balancing:
    • Always use rims free from any bend/damage.
    • Balance the assembly at the time of new tyre fitment or whenever it is de-mounted/mounted on the rim.
