How Are Solid Tires Maintained?

A solid tire is a type of tire relative to a pneumatic tire. It has a solid carcass, no inner tube, no inner liner, and certainly, doesn't have to be inflated. The characteristics of the high elasticity, strong heat dissipation, and good wear resistance of solid tires make them have the advantages of low deformation rate, reduced maintenance costs,  and long service life. It is suitable for industrial vehicles, military vehicles, construction machinery, trailer vehicles in ports and airports, etc. The operating conditions are generally low speed and high load. At this time, the safety, durability, and economy of solid tires will be much better than pneumatic tires. Even the best tires need maintenance, so how to maintain solid tires?

1. It is important to select a suitable and correct tire first. Tires with different types and patterns must not be mixed arbitrarily due to the actual size and load capacity of each tire.

2. Secondly, if the tire pressure is too low or too high, it will affect the service life of the tire, so it is necessary to properly adjust the tire pressure of the solid tire.

3. Solid tires should be used within the load capacity corresponding to the specified load index. The greater the load on the vehicle, the shorter the life of the tires. In the case of overload, it is more prominent.

4. Then the excessively high temperature is easy to aggravate the wear of the solid tire or the occurrence of a puncture. During the driving process of the vehicle, the tire temperature rises due to the stretching, compression, and friction of the tire.

5. Excessive starting, sudden steering, emergency braking, high-speed driving in areas with poor road conditions, frequent getting on and off the road, and tires scraping obstacles when parking, etc., will cause serious wear of the tires, thereby reducing the service life of the tires.

6. If the vehicle runs on gravel roads or has bad road conditions for a long time, the service life of the tires will be reduced.

7. Many auto maintenance experts say that the vehicle should be repaired by three points and nourished by seven points. Don't wait until there is a fault before going to the maintenance station for maintenance. The regular maintenance of the vehicle is also closely related to the extension of tire life.
