Get a foot pump with fixed gauge, it will help you in any situation to pump up the wheel to the desired level. Or buy an electric pump that connects to the "cigarette lighter" in the cabin of the car. It should also have included a device which will show the pressure in the wheels.
Remove the cap, it is always located on the valve. In place of the cap, push the hose that leads from the pump or from the compressor. Do not rush immediately to pump, first look at the pressure gauge. If the pressure is below normal, then you need swap space. Norm is the value 2 to 2.2 atmospheres.
Be careful not to exceed, the excess pressure will make the wheel too hard, which reduces the comfort and handling on the road. Sometimes this surplus invalidates the tires – they just burst. When the excess pressure to clear the hose and let the excess air out by pressing on the nipple. At the same time check the pressure in all the other wheels and, if necessary, swap them.
If you have a flat wheel on the road, in the Parking lot or in some other place, then after pumping the wheels check if there is a puncture. To do this, raise the vehicle on a Jack and inspect it, scrolling in all directions. If you see entrenched in the tread patterns nail, screw or any other sharp object, then the repair can not be avoided, and pumping will not help. Well, if you have a spare wheel, then it's simple: Jack the car and replace.
If you don't have a spare, then try to get to the nearest tire store. To do this, inflate the wheel and, without pulling out a foreign object, move at low speed. If it fails to do so, and the spare wheel you have, then you have to carry out repairs on site with the kit for repair of tubeless tyres.
Advice 2: How to build a wheel
Support specified by the manufacturer uniform tire pressure of the car helps to save fuel consumption, but also provides the conditions of operating mileage of the tire, guaranteed by the manufacturer. In addition, this is also a very important factor, ensure the safety of driving.
You will need
- The compressor or pump and the manometer.
The difference of tire pressure of the wheels creates the conditions for their uneven engagement with the road surface, leading to intensive wear of the tread, and uneven redistribution of loads in each suspension unit, and this leads to the disruption of the balance of stability of the car while driving.
Low tyre pressure increases the load on the lateral surface of the wheel, which also leads to uneven distribution of load on the protector with all the ensuing consequences.
Increased tire pressure increases the load on the center of the treadmill tread, reducing it to the lateral surface of the wheel. The consequences of too high tyre pressure will also reduce the life of tires and reduces security while driving.
In connection with the foregoing, to once every two or three days to check the tire pressure of the wheels in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations. In case of deviation, the tire pressure is brought back to normal.
For the swap wheels, you need to connect the compressor to the cigarette lighter socket, Unscrew the protective cap from the wheel valve, wear of the tip of the pumping hose at the valve and start the compressor. Bringing the tire pressure to normal, the compressor stops, and the pumping hose is detached from the valve wheel. But before the Herz-TS protective cap, be sure to check the tire pressure with a test gauge, and then tighten the cap on the valve.
Plate with the manufacturer's recommended tire pressure, as a rule, is usually placed on the inner surface of the fuel filler flap the fuel tank.
Advice 3: How to align wheel
Deformation of the wheels is one of the most common problems faced by owners of cars, motorcycles and bicycles as a result of accidents or drive on bad roads. When minor damage wheel you can align.
And yet, most often this trouble is chasing cyclists. What "eight" is one of them. Translated into technical terms it means the curvature of the rim when one or more parts out of the same plane. The result of "eight" becomes the friction of the rim on the brake pads, which leads to their premature wear.
The reason for "eight" is the weakening of the tension of multiple spokes. To eliminate the problem you can at home, pulling the spokes. "The pit" - a more serious deformation of the wheel when the wheel rim to bend to its centre. With a significant deformation of the wheel must be replaced. In other cases, the disassembly and repair of wheels will have to do on a special stand, if this is a fairly expensive model.
Deformation in the form of an oval occurs when uneven tension of spokes in different ways. This issue can also be addressed independently, pulling the spokes from the side, where there was a bulge. In case of serious deformation of the rim, remove the wheel from the bike, loosen all the spokes and resting on the rim at any two opposite points, arms straighten it. After that, put the wheel on the bike and carefully align it. To correct the deformed portion of the rim you can use a special hook made of metal strip with a soft grip.
Dents on the edges of the rim you can fix with a hammer and a wooden lining. Don't forget before you start to work with a hammer, it's good to pump the tires.
Deformation of motor drives can be eliminated only in the conditions of service. The degree of deformation is determined by special equipment. After the diagnosis and establish the type of deformation of the disk is put on the stand. The main principle is to determine the direction and force of impact, leading to deformation of the disk and then apply the opposite force to overcome it.
