So, you go bring your car in for an oil change and when you pick it up, the mechanic tells you that you need new tires. You don’t know what size tires you need, what kind to buy, or even why you need new ones. Do you just trust the mechanic, or do you venture out on your own? Okay, so you are going to go for new tires, where do you begin? irst of all, it’s not a bad thing to have trust in your mechanics. They are going to have to fix a whole lot more than bad tires in the future. But, tires are one thing you have a little control over with just a little bit of knowledge. This way you can make sure you are getting exactly what you need for the price you deserve to pay.
Trailer tires are designed to roll freely and resist the pressure and friction during braking. They are also designed with thicker sideways to minimize the risk of damage due to rubbing on the curb as you pull up to park. They are not designed for traction or for torque and should not be used in the steer or drive positions for safety reasons. Many of the top lines of trailer tires now are designed to be puncture resistant or to have construction options that help then stand up to contact pressure, withstand heat better to help minimize the degradation of the tread over the miles and to also prevent the tire from becoming extremely rigid in cold weather. Puncture resistant trailer tires are also a consideration and are used by many large fleets as a cost and time saving option for long haul routes as well as short deliveries.
If a tire gets too hot and there is too much pressure, the tread can actually separate from the belts on the tire. This is more likely to happen with the addition of high speeds. Driving on a highway and losing your tire’s tread can easily cause an accident. Do your part to keep yourself and others safe. Another potential risk is that of hydroplaning. This happens mostly when your tires do not have enough tread. What happens in hydroplaning is that too much water builds between the tires on your car and the road. Water pressure in front of the wheel forces a wedge of water causing it to actually lift from the road. This leads to the loss of traction and you are then at the mercy of the water. You basically skid on the water and have a loss of control in your steering, braking, and acceleration.
