What is the impact of long-term parking on tires?

2020-06-15
The car is not afraid to drive, but afraid to let go. If the car is parked for more than a month, the corresponding operation "warm up" will be performed to check what is wrong.

One of the places we tend to overlook is tires.

The tire is arguably the most "labor model" component of the entire car. Usually the start-stop brakes are worn, and they are exposed to the sun and the wind, and they are supporting the weight of the vehicle every moment.

There is a problem here: under different working conditions of tires, the loss is different.

In the case of normally open, the pressure of the tire is evenly distributed; when the vehicle is parked for a long time, the tire is in a state of being pressed for a long time and has been pressed, it may be aging, and there will be cracks, deformation, air leakage, etc. A brand tire official has a saying: "Tire will lose about 0.1bar of pressure every month. If the tire pressure is too low for a long time, the tire may have problems."
The above is only for normal use.

If the tire pressure is too low, when the road is on the road again, the increased deformation of the sidewall will cause damage and a flat tire.

Under normal conditions, the tire pressure range is 2.2bar-2.5bar. During the epidemic, many car owners did not need to go out, and the car did not move the nest for more than 2 months. It is necessary to re-measure the tire pressure before going on the road.

Even if there is no need to travel, the car should be driven out about 2 weeks apart to keep the tires in optimal condition.
