Understand The Importance Of Wheel Alignment
Understand The Importance Of Wheel Alignment

Wheel alignment refers to a proper adjustment with the vehicle's suspension- an organized system that builds a connection of wheels with the vehicle. The perfect alignment is one where all the tyres are well adjusted as this angle adjustment is responsible for how your tyres are making contact with the road. Wheel alignment determines the handling of the vehicle, it can increase the wear and tear of the tyre and pull the tyres in one or the other direction. 

There is no rocket science in getting your wheels aligned. All you need to do is get your car to a service center, and they will place your vehicle on a wheel alignment machine. 

You must be wondering when I should get my wheels aligned or what is the right time to get my wheels aligned? The answer to this question is most of the manufacturers recommend to get your wheel alignment checked after 6 months or 10,000km whichever you complete first. 

It is advised that if you hit any pothole or curb you should get your suspension and steering damage checked and wheel alignment too as just shocks can cause damage. 

  • Now let’s understand the common alignment angles in detail :

 

  • 1. Caster Angle

The angle at which the front suspension is positioned about the vertical position is known as Caster. It cannot be set anywhere else other than the front suspension of the car. This angle is not visible with the naked eye but it can be measured with proper wheel alignment equipment. 

There are various wheel alignment services in Nagpur from where you can easily get your Caster angle checked as they are well equipped with alignment tools.  

This angle is set in such a way that it provides steering stability and also assists in the steering when you drive at higher speeds as it is positioned in such that way. Whenever you turn your steering wheel it is the caster that puts your wheel back into its original state. This angle doesn’t have any effect on the wear and tear of the tyres .

 

  • 2. Camber Angle

Camber is an angle that you might be able to see when you look at the tyres of any vehicle. There is a slight tilt on top of the tyre and this slight angle is in accordance with how tyre sits on the road. 

Under camber there are two small categories- if you look closely at the wheels of your tyre, you can see the top of the tyre tilted inside meaning towards the vehicle then your vehicle will be having negative camber. But on the other side while wheel checking if you see the wheel tilting out of the vehicle then it will be classified as positive camber. 

At maximum places vehicles are set at neutral or slightly negative camber as this set up allows for an even tyre wear, but in sports cars, you can see more negative camber as this may increase handling capacity at high speeds.   

With more negative camber the inside of the tyre might wear off early and with more positive camber the outside of the tyre will wear off at an early stage. 

 

  • 3. Toe Angle

The most common type of wheel alignment adjustment is the Toe angle. It can be taken as the vertical or perpendicular position of the tyres. 

Just consider walking with your toes pointed inwards such adjustment is known as Toe-in and if your feet are outwards and straight without toe then this placement is known as Toe-out. 

This angle can be set on the front and back of the tyres of any vehicle and it is typically set at nearly zero or straight. Too much of Toe-out or in can lead to instability at higher speeds, and gradually tyre wear also increases as the vehicle fights in response to the excessive angle of the tyre. 

You must have got to know that wheel alignment is an important part of vehicle maintenance and it is something people often neglect. We hope now you are more informed about your tyres and vehicle.

Tips To Tyre Care And Maintenance
Tips To Tyre Care And Maintenance

The lifespan of any car depends on how much effort you put in its maintenance and care. For a better driving experience care is important, many centers provide vehicle maintenance services in Nagpur, one of them is Ajmera Tyres with trained employees and years of experience in the Tyre Industry. Tyres demand extra care as they are the only part which is in direct contact with the road and they go through rough conditions. So let’s take one step towards understanding how we can care for tyres: 

 

  • 1. Tyre Inspection

The first step towards tyre maintenance is to look for possible damages that can happen to your tyre. The general condition of tyre says a lot itself so if you see anything unusual like a cut, bulge, crack, knots, or air loss then it is better to knock on the door of your car dealer and have an expert opinion for safety. 

 

  • 2. Keep A Check On Inflation Pressure Of Tyres

Every car comes with a manual where you can easily check for the recommended levels of inflation pressure for your car tyres. This one thing can be considered one of the most important things as it helps in the long-lasting stability of tyres.

One the biggest reason for tyre damage is under inflation which leads to severe cracks and loss of air in tyres. This mostly leads to excessive sidewall flexing, reduced lead capacity, increased rolling distance which further directs to mechanical damage as more heat gets generated.

Tyre maintenance is no easy job where under-inflation is harmful, over inflation is harmful too, as stiffness in tyres increases the driver might feel uncomfortable while driving, unwanted vibration can be felt too!  

 

  • 3. Prevent Overloading Vehicle

You are provided with a vehicle manual where you can check for the load limit of your vehicle. Indian vehicles are overloaded most of the time but what you need to know is that overloading puts up stress on the tyres and also on other vital vehicle parts. This may lead to poor handling, tyre damage and extra fuel consumption than normal. Make sure you are aware of the load capacity of your new tyres, never compromise on these little things because they seem small now, but they might prove out to be dangerous in the future. The Simplest tyre care tip to make sure you don’t overload. 

 

  • 4. Avoid Excessive Spinning of Tyre

People often try to spin tyres excessively when they get stuck in sand, snow, or mud. This can be considered a heavy vehicle care tip as they are most commonly used in such seasons. When you spin so much you generate heat inside the tyre and this may lead to irreparable damage. Try to be calm and soft when you are doing forward and backward motion because pushing too hard is not going to help to get your vehicle out. 

 

  • 5. Consult Experienced Centres

Asking questions is your right when you are paying! If you are buying new tyres or getting your tyres repaired it’s important to know about the background of the centres. There are many types of people in the same market, you don’t want to land up with poor quality. Ajmera tyres is a vehicle service centre where you can expect only quality and the service that you deserve as a consumer.

Causes Of Tyre Damage and How To Control It
Causes Of Tyre Damage and How To Control It

There are various conditions that can affect the tyres of your car. It is imperative to take care of your tyres more than any other part as they are only the part which is in sole contact of the road, if your tyres are not in a good position then the direct impact comes to the vehicle. So knowing the common causes of tyre damage will make you more alert and vigilant. The most common tyre damage is tyre burst and it occurs mostly due to the release of the pressurized air inside the tyre. If we go in-depth then it is often observed that the internal structure of tyres loses its capacity and that is the point when tyre is not able to hold enough air. This air escapes through tears leading to severe explosion and damage to the tyre surface. Let’s understand why tyre burst happens and it causes: 

 

  • 1. High-Temperature Range

We are aware of the Indian climate and due to this hot climate, most of the year tyres get affected. Heat is not good for vehicles and tires. When excessive heat fills up the tire it leads to tyre burst. According to Gay Lussac’s law, it has been stated that with an increase in temperature, pressure increases too in other words temperature is directly proportional to pressure. The surrounding heat makes the inside air hotter, pressurized, and eventually expands. Also, there is friction between road and tires, on a hot summer day, this increases to many folds. Friction makes the outside tyre hotter and rubber weakens from inside so on hot days with old tyres your vehicle is on the edge of tyre burst. 

 

  • 2. Under Inflation 

Approximately 75% of tyre bursts occur because of under-inflation. Under-inflation means when the pressure inside the tire is not right. Excessive flexing is a common phenomenon with under-inflated tyres as the contact of tyre is much more in this case. The frictional force also increases as the tyre is in more contact with the road so the heat build up is more, point to be noted is that heat build-up, in this case, is much more than high temperature. So the tyre damage reason is the same as above, hotter inside, more pressure, and more expansion and BOOM, the tyre is gone! But the incidence of this happening is quite higher in the high temperature.

 

  • 3. Over Speeding 

Every tyre that you see in the market is made with a particular speed rate at which the tyre functions properly. The construction of tyres is done in such a way that they can tolerate speeding up to that point only. If the car speed goes beyond that point then the internal structure of the tyre might not tolerate the high speed and high friction and this may lead to tyre burst. This is another tyre damage type where more heat will be generated inside the tyre because of more friction and bursting due to structural limitations.

But every problem has a solution. In the above points, we talked about possible reasons behind tyre damage but now we’ll talk about solutions on how to avoid tyre damages.  

 

  • 4. Keep A Check On Tyre Pressure 

One of the major causes of tyre burst is under inflation. As the heat outside increases, the pressure inside the tire increases, and as the temperature goes down pressure goes down. So it is better that you are updated with the weather conditions around you and make sure you are aware of the ideal pressure that needs to be maintained! 

 

  • 5. Avoid Overload Trouble 

It is good to do carpool but making your car a bus? We Indians often overload our cars to save money and time but this might turn out to be your last ride. Every car can carry a certain amount of weight. If you overload your car beyond that then it can turn out to be dangerous. So make sure you don’t overload your car.  

 

  • 6. Keep A Quality Check On Your Tyres

Every tyre needs replacement after a certain time, old and rugged tires can prove to be dangerous so make sure you keep quality and check, and if you feel uneasy while driving do not forget to check for cuts in tyre. 

You must have understood the common causes of tyre damage and what you can do to prevent them. Make sure you remember these points and ensure safety for yourself and your family!

Do Not Forget These Key Terms Before Buying New Tyres
Do Not Forget These Key Terms Before Buying New Tyres

Tyres are one of the most important and neglected parts of the car, a lot of factors of a car depend on tyres, as normal people you might not see them but we make sure that our customers never have to compromise with quality. Some of the important reasons that you should consider why tyres are important- how your car is going to perform depends on your tyres, if your car has best quality tyres then wheel alignment and wheel balancing of your car has to be accurate therefore giving you a comfortable ride inside or in simple words enhances the stability, on every bumpy road and unseen dips, your tyres take up all the road stress and act as a cushion and protects your car from internal damage, also make sure your tyres are properly inflated as firstly it enhances tyre performance and also enhances your driving movement when your drive as when tyres are not properly inflated there are chances that your car might drag sideways so to keep your car straight and have better control over steering tyres play a major role. 

Now you are quite aware that tyres play a major role in your car and hence it is important to know more about your tyres. Make sure you remember these terms before you buy new tyres for your car. These are the few terms :

 

  • 1. Know Your Vehicle Type 

Just take an example from your daily life suppose you want to buy a pair of shoes for yourself and shopkeeper shows you a bigger size or smaller size, you immediately reject it because they are not according to your foot size, in the same way, every car has a different tyre need and they perform best when they are fitted in the tyres which are particularly meant for them. So you see tyre shopping is quite similar to normal shoe shopping which is why SUVs, trucks, campers, and other vehicles have different tyre needs! Just observe the tread pattern of trucks and you’ll see that they have thicker tread than other vehicles. The reason behind it is to provide better traction and it also helps to stop the truck easily when brakes are applied as trucks carry heavy loads and to ensure safety tyres are different. 

On the other hand, campers have different sets of tyres with thicker rubber to hold the heavyweight of the camper itself. So you see how different vehicles have different tyre needs so be careful next time when buying tyres for your car. 

 

  • 2. Runflat Tyres 

These tyres are designed in a special way where your tyre might not go flat as soon your car runs over something sharp and protects it from getting punctured or loss of pressure. But this doesn’t mean that your tyre will never need any replace or repair, run-flat tyres are not designed to remain permanent. Run Flat tyres can be used in case you drive near places where there is more debris on the road and construction sites or if you are living in crowded cities. 

 

  • 3. Aspect Ratio of Tyre 

When we talk about the aspect ratio of a tyre we are discussing the relation of the width of the tyre to its height. Now you must be thinking what is the use of the aspect ratio of tyres. There are 2 cases to consider just in case if the tyre is shorter than less noise of the tyre will be less and also it will offer better handling on-road so shorter tyres might provide better grip on poor road or weather conditions. On the other hand, if your car has bigger tyres or a high aspect ratio then tyres might be cheaper but the grip and handling of those tyres may not give your vehicle handling that it deserves. Hence tyre size plays an important role in your vehicle.  

We hope we are making your driving choices better and more informative. To know more about our services and products you can visit our website www.ajmeratyres.com or give us a call on our customer care service- 888 2 77 99 99

Different Weather Has Different Tyre Needs
Different Weather Has Different Tyre Needs

You might get surprised when we will tell you that your Tyres need to change in different weather! Tyres are just like people, just like we wear different clothes in different seasons because our body tells us to keep ourselves warm or cold in the same way Tyres also needs change. There are various Tyre types, some are all made for all seasons and some are strictly related to different weather conditions, so how to choose the best Tyre for your car? Before you select one particular type of Tyre make sure that you go through all the variety of Tyres available and it’s imperative that it should meet your driving style and requirements too!  


With seasons your Tyre requirement depends on your vehicle as well! Did you know that a van and a normal car have a different Tyre need! Here comes the difference, you see thousands of cars, bikes, buses, trucks every day but still, we remain unaware of the types of Tyres used.

Let’s explore which Tyre type is suitable for your drive.

  • Performance Tyres 

As the name suggests performance Tyres give your drive more responsive handling, a perfect grip every time you are on the road and a sporty feel when you accelerate on your journey. If you are looking for performance Tyres for your car then Ajmera Tyres are one of the best Tyre dealers in Nagpur, Amravati and PuneMaking of performance Tyres requires advanced skill and technology and they are not manufactured everywhere, such Tyres can be considered premium.

If weather conditions around you are dry then these are best for your vehicle. They give fair winter traction. So, if you are looking for a reasonable ride and tread life for your vehicle then go ahead with performance Tyres!

  • Winter Tyres   

Winter Tyres are designed to provide maximum traction in snowy, icy, and wet conditions. When the temperature drops they still remain flexible in cold conditions because they are optimized already and protect you in bad snowy weather helping you to stay safe.

If you are someone who lives in a snow-covered area then make sure that your car Tyres are of the right type.

  • Energy Saving Tyres

We live in urban areas with high pollution levels and are not bothered about the future. There are many ways in which we can contribute towards a sustainable environment even if it is a small contribution it matters. Energy-saving Tyres are designed in such a way that it has low levels of rolling friction hence low fuel consumption and low CO2 emission in the atmosphere. Another benefit is you can save a bit too if your vehicle is using less fuel. Maximum manufacturers use energy-saving Tyres to ensure low fuel consumption.

You can get more information from any Tyre shop in Nagpur, it’s important to know what you own! 

  • Run Flat Tyres

Have you experienced a flat Tyre? Anyone who owns a car is familiar with Tyre puncture. Run-flat Tyres are designed in a way to maintain your safety when your Tyre gets punctured with thick and reinforced sidewalls, they help you cover short distances even with a flat Tyre.

  • Summer Tyres

Summer Tyres or standard Tyres are one of the most commonly used Tyres and are high performing and are designed to cope in temperatures above 60°c. They have great stability and grip due to the presence of soft rubber, also they provide resistance in rainy seasons and prevent aquaplaning.

Apart from the Tyre variety above, there is one category of Tyre which has an altogether different construction and is made with a combination of winter and summer Tyres technology. The advantage of such Tyres is that they perform well in different seasons but these all-season Tyres cannot replace the performance of separate winter and summer Tyres as they are not optimised in the same way.  

Overall, be cautious and vigilant when you are buying a car, make sure you don’t compromise with the quality and safety of your drive.

Choose wisely, drive long life!!

Get To Know Why Tire Tread Matters
Get To Know Why Tire Tread Matters

 

You must be thinking, what is tire tread? The part of the tire that is in direct contact with the road surface is called the tire Tread. This part is indeed very important because no matter how your road is it is your tires that provide you comfort and safety. So basically it makes your driving experience worth it. You must have seen it closely and you must have observed a pattern on it that is called the Tread Pattern.

 

Tread has various components if we go in detail such as tread blocks, sipes, ribs, cross slots, and grooves. These elements of tire touch the road and can be considered some basic information when we talk about tire tread. So that when your car is at a speed of 150 km/h road you don’t get to feel inside your car. You can easily find a tire tread checkup center in Nagpur to ensure your tires are in perfect shape!


All-season summer tire- close up of tread block and sipes that help in evacuating water

  1. Tread Block

    The next time you go on a drive just see that on your tire there are large pieces of rubber coming outwards from the tire’s surface. Tread blocks are the real soldiers fighting with the road and everything that comes in its way. Without tread blocks you just cannot imagine traction/friction, they may seem a small part but their role is crucial. When the car stops or brakes are applied they offer a “bite effect” and help to maintain a grip with the road.  

  2. Sipes
    Moving more deeper between the tread blocks and edges of tread pattern you can see small and narrow grooves named sipes, tread design is complex for a reason. During rainy days when there is water logging everywhere specifically in India, these sipes help in displacing water underneath the tire which makes your drive comfortable on wet surfaces and keeps your vehicle stable.

    • Grooves

    The tread pattern has a continuous channel around it named grooves, these grooves have 2 roles to play in tire first being it helps in bending/flexing and moving of the tire tread on the road, this in turn gives your tire a firm grip while driving. Also, these grooves wipe off the water when the road is wet. For this reason, the car in cities with heavy rainfall always has more groove density and high sipe.     

     

    • Now let’s find the role of tread pattern during monsoon

     

    There are many places in the world where the sun is barely seen and it is mostly snowing or raining. For people living in such places tread depth matters way too much, more deeper your tread the more water it’ll be able to displace.

     

    When tire tread depth is low, the vehicle basically moves on the water which is known as hydroplaning. So your tire loses all contact with the road and is riding above water and there is no traction meaning your car can slide!

     

    There are few instruments like tire tread depth gauge which measure the depth of the top of the tread rubber to the bottoms’ deepest grooves, by measuring the depth you are aware and alert!

  • Conclusion

 

In a car, everything is connected and dependent on different parts. When we apply brakes it’s the tires that make that happen. Your tire condition decides to move and stop at a particular time while you are driving. To be on the safer side always make sure that you take good care of all the parts of your car from time to time by getting good service, especially your tires as they are the only parts in contact with the road.

Drive safe!!
