Tires are one of the most important assets

A tire maintenance program supports safety on the road and helps fleets capitalize on long-term performance. Tire maintenance helps fleets identify and address problems before they happen, potentially avoiding costly downtime while multiplying savings through optimized tire performance, including improved tread life and fuel economy.

By managing a tire throughout its lifecycle – from selection to removal – fleet managers can make a big impact on the bottom line, all while making mobility more efficient for their fleet.

Here are Some great tips to help you better care for your truck’s tyres.

Tyre Service Life Reminder

Tires have been built to provide you several thousand miles of excellent service before they’re removed from service. To avoid tire damage that might result in a premature removal from service, they must be well maintained to keep the substances inside the tires intact. Though it isn’t practical to accurately predict the amount of time before your tires are worn down past their minimum tread depth, there are surely a few characteristics we can point out that will help you better understand how long your tires will last.

Fleet Tires Should Be Rotated

Because tires wear unevenly depending on your truck’s drivetrain, rotating your tires every time you get new oil helps to ensure consistent wear. According to Ford’s chief global engineer, tire rotation is critical. Your front tires should last longer than your back tires. By rotating your tires regularly, you can extend their life, ensure a smoother ride, and lessen the strain on your truck’s suspension, which can occur as the result of uneven wear. MRF has over 600 dealer points in India making them an indigenous brand that works for India’s roads.

Get Alerted When Tires Need to Be Balanced

To keep your tires rolling smoothly and without any problems, it’s essential that they’re properly adjusted. If a tire is balanced, its weight is equally distributed on the pivot’s centre. Because of this imbalance tires tend to knock, pull to either side, or shake when driving on uneven or bumpy roads. This creates unnecessary wear on the suspension and irregular tire wear.

Guarantee your wheels are adjusted after every service.

When you notice that your tires are out of alignment so to speak, it’s a good idea to have them adjusted as soon as possible. It is generally recommended that you get your oil changes from trusted mechanics in the first place, but with misaligned tires it’s especially important! Out-of-aligned wheels make for undesirable driving and will impact your gas mileage and even put you at risk for dangerous vehicle incidents.

The best way to control and manage your smart lights

One of the more inconspicuous parts of your vehicle you’ll have to care for is your headlights. It might not be at the top of your priority list but taking them for granted could prove expensive in the long run. Sometimes a simple fix could remedy it quickly, but there’s sometimes a noticeable problem with either its electrical element or equipment failure that compels you to seek a certified mechanic before hitting the road.

Add Digital Intelligence to Your Fleet

You should also check out the engine coolant, power steering fluid, windshield washer fluid and brake fluid on a regular basis. Engine coolants keeps your engine’s temperature in check by controlling boiling and freezing points. You’ll want to investigate advanced solutions that are free of toxins while being sustainable. For a more environmentally friendly option, consider using organic technology that remains effective even at blistering temperatures and stands up to the test of time. Power steering fluids keep your car running smoothly by moving every mechanical part inside of your truck’s steering system. Organic power steering fluids are an excellent choice as they cost considerably less than synthetic alternatives over time, yet still provide all the qualities you might look for in a product like this.

Changing the power steering fluid can prevent a lot of trouble when it comes to other more costly power steering components. Similarly, changing the windshield washer fluid is critical aspect of routine truck maintenance, even if it may not seem like a huge problem. Dust and stains on your windshield can quickly accumulate, making visibility difficult. Changing the windshield washer fluid on a regular basis is not only a good idea, but it also preserves your windshield. Brake fluid occasionally collects moisture from the air over time, leading it to malfunction. Therefore, your brake fluid should be replenished on a regular basis with fresh fluid. Brake oil will ensure that your brakes stay in good operating order.
