Changing wheels round
I the tyres are wearing unevenly, it is
advisable to change them round as
;^own. All the tyres will then last for
aoout the same mileage.
.'.hen the wheels have been changed
'3und it may be necessary to have the
•-ont wheels balanced again.
Replacing tyres
For safety reasons the tyres should
be replaced in pairs and not singly. The
tyres with the deepest tread should al-
ways be on the front wheels.
Only radial ply tyres of the same type,
size and the same tread pattern may be
combined.
For safety reasons a n e w
rubber
valve should be fitted when a new tube-
less tyre has been installed.
Tubes should only be used in tube-
less tyres in an emergency.
When this is done, ensure that the air
trapped between tube and tyre can
escape from the valve.
Repairing tyres calls for special equip-
ment and knowledge and should there-
fore only be done by a specialist.
Balancing wheels
The wheels on new vehicles are balanc-
ed. However when vehicle is running,
various influences can cause wheels to
become unbalanced and this causes
steering vibration.
As imbalance also increases steering,
suspension and tyre wear the wheels
should be balanced again.
Furthermore a wheel should always be
rebalanced when the tyre has been re-
paired or when a new tyre has been
fitted.
