Used tires for sale: how to extend tires life?

 In blog

The tires are the only contact that the car has with the highway, becoming the primary aspect for the safety of your family. For this reason, it is important to know some tips to keep the tires in good condition and also if we wish to sell them as used tires for sale.

When leaving home, it is very important to check the tire air pressure; depending on which car you use will be the pressure that you should place on your car’s tires. If you do not know how much air your tires need, you can check it on the same tire. On one side of the rim you can see a number similar to P 185/48 R 14 and on that side you can find another number that indicates the maximum air pressure that can be placed to the rim, as well as the maximum amount of load car. For example: 52 PSI (pounds square inches) this will be the maximum pressure load you can put.

It is important to mention that you need to go to the first gas station to measure the tire pressure so that the reading is correct. Normally, when we go out on the freeway or we are on the street, the tires heat up and expand. For this reason, it is not advisable to add more air to the tires when we are in the middle of the trip because the pressure reading may be incorrect.

If you want to put air to the tires, make sure that it is in the morning, without having traveled (preferably) more than 5 km, this way the pressure reading on the tires will be correct. Also, it is important to remember that when moving normally in the city without load it is important to put 3 pounds less to have greater comfort in the car and extend the life of the tire and thus use them as used tires for sale. There are some doubts whether it is better to fill the tires with nitrogen or air.

Nitrogen has come to stay because filling the tires with nitrogen brings many benefits. The common air that we put to the tires already counts on approximately 78% of nitrogen for which we have some benefits; however, having 100% nitrogen in the tire helps us to maintain the pressure that our tires must have.

It is known that in hot climates when riding on the highway there is a risk that the tires will explode because they expand due to excessive heat increase, nitrogen causes greater pressure stability and the tire does not expand. Also, nitrogen helps save fuel; increases tire life, and protect steel hoops from rust. In addition, if something damages, nitrogen leaves out the tire more slowly than just air.

The benefits of nitrogen are due to the oxygen molecules are larger for this reason the inflation is maintained for a longer time, the density varies with changes in temperature keeping the pressure in optimum state helping the fuel to last longer. The use of nitrogen prevents oxidation of the metal walls of the rim. To sum up, the benefits of nitrogen are that they maintain the pressure for longer, save fuel and increase the life of the tire. However, there are disadvantages because you cannot go anywhere to fill the tires with nitrogen and you should pay for every time you want to fill the tire. The alignment is very important for your safety and tire life. The alignment consists of achieving a parallel and angular positioning of the tires in the two axles (front and rear) and is used to move with less resistance in the bearing, thus achieving greater safety at the moment of using the brakes, curves or in any of the conditions climatic conditions (dry or wet floor).

If we do not perform tire alignment, it may happen that if we brake abruptly, the driver may lose control of the car causing an accident. Normally, the tires lose their alignment by bumps or obstacles along the way. For this reason, it is recommended that at least every six months or every 6,200 miles.

If you are not sure if your car needs an alignment we recommend that when driving in a straight line (at low speed), hold the steering wheel slightly but if the car is slightly diverted somewhere is that you urgently need an alignment. Not aligning the tires, causes insecurity in any trip you make, as well as conserve the useful life of the tires for a longer time, reduces fuel and pollution because it maintains the life of the tire for a longer time or to be able to offer them in the used tire market.

Another important factor to increase the life of the tires is the balance and rotation of the tires. The difference between these two services is that the balancing is done to achieve balance and distribute the weight throughout the car. Failure in balance can cause discomfort when driving because it can cause the steering wheel to vibrate at certain speeds during the ride or lose control of the car at some turns or when using the brakes. Rotating tires is important because tires wear out differently depending on where they are in the car due to braking or engine weight. Normally, the front tires are the ones that have a greater wear and if the rotation and balance are not realized the tires should be changed more often, causing more expenses to the owners and pollution to the environment.

The rotation and balance must be done every six months or 6,200 thousand miles (whichever comes first), so you can increase the life of your tires, reducing expenses and pollution. When changing the tires you can choose new ones or choose used tires for sale. However, it is very important to check that the tires do not have a strong punch or are too worn to avoid danger. On the other hand, it is important to mention that at the time of changing the tires we must look for the right tire for our car, because if we place a different size tire or made for another type of terrain can cause the other tires to wear out or cause problems of insecurity such as slipping or problems when braking.
