Filling your tyres with Nitrogen is a good way to get better performance and safety from your tyres. Nitrogen will leak three or four times more slowly than compressed air, which can lead to some pretty useful benefits like:

Stable tyre pressure.
Improved road grip.
Safer all-weather performance.
Increased fuel economy.
No internal oxidisation through the elimination of moisture.
Increased tyre life.

How To Read A Sidewall

There is a lot of useful information molded into the sidewall of every tire. Included are manufacturer and tire name; section width; aspect ratio; construction; rim diameter; speed rating; load range; treadwear, temperature and traction labeling and other required designations.



SIZE
All tires sold in the United States must meet the size standards for bead shape, width, diameter and other parameters established by a recognized standardizing organization. World leaders among such organizations are the European Tire and Rim Technical Organization (ETRTO) and the U. S. Tire and Rim Association (T&RA). Both use a partially metric-based system. Virtually all passenger tires on the market today use the rim and tire sizing, load and inflation system established by these bodies. All U. S. highway tires must also meet U. S. D.O.T. standards as indicated by the letters 'D.O.T.' on the sidewall.

The several tire size designations in use today depend on when a vehicle was manufactured and whether it was domestically produced or imported. All tire-sizing systems used today provide information about a tire's dimensions. Among the most important for proper fitment is height, width and load carrying capacity.
P-Metric: This is the United States version of a metric sizing system established in 1976. P-Metric passenger car tire sizes begin with "P," which simply means "Passenger."

Metric: This European tire sizing system is similar to P-Metric but does not use the "P" designator.

Alphanumeric: This system was established in 1968 and is based on the tire's load carrying capacity, correlated to its overall size. The tire's capacity and size are indicated by letter designations from "A" (smallest tire, lowest capacity) to "N" (largest tire, highest capacity). An example of an Alphanumeric tire size is BR78-13. "B" shows size/load, "R" indicates radial construction, "78" is the aspect ratio, and "13" is the wheel size in inches.

Numeric: This is the oldest standardized tire sizing system for passenger car tires. When this system was adopted, tire aspect ratios were either 92 or 82. For example, a 7.00-14 tire has a section width of 7 inches, a rim diameter of 14 inches and an aspect ratio of 92. The low profile equivalent size tire with an aspect ratio of 82 would be 7.35-14.

Example: P215/65R15 89H

P PASSENGER (P-METRIC/NON-P-METRIC)
This indicates a passenger car tire. If the first character in the size designation is a "P," the tire is a "P-Metric" tire and is engineered to standards set by the T&RA. If there is no "P", the tire is engineered to ETRTO standards and is a metric tire. The standards set by T&RA and ETRTO have evolved together and are virtually interchangeable.

215 SECTION WIDTH
These numerals indicate the tire section width in millimeters. This is the dimension from sidewall to sidewall. A tire's section width will vary depending on the rim to which it is fitted. The section width will be larger on a wide rim and smaller on a narrow rim. Therefore, each tire is measured to specific rim width. (To convert millimeters into inches, divide by 25.4.)

65 ASPECT RATIO
This two-digit number indicates the tire's aspect ratio. It compares the tire's inflated section height, which is the distance from the bead to the tread, to its section width (maximum). An aspect ratio of 65 means that the tire's section height is 65% of the tire's section width. For clarity, the section width in millimeters is separated from the aspect ratio by a slash (/).

R CONSTRUCTION
This letter indicates the type of ply construction in the tire's casing or carcass. "R" means radial. "D" means diagonal, referring to bias ply tires. "B" means belted for belted-bias ply tires. Never mix radial tires with any other construction on a car.

15 RIM DIAMETER
The "15" indicates the rim diameter in inches. It is the diameter of the tire bead seat ledge in the rim. Most tires are built to inch standards for rim diameters. However, some tires are built to millimetric rim dimensions. Always match the tire's rim diameter to the wheel rim diameter. This is important for safety.
NOTE: A millimetric rim has a different shape than an inch rim; they are not interchangeable.

89H SERVICE DESCRIPTION
The service description is an alphanumeric combination, consisting of two parts, a number and a letter. In this example, "89" is the load index, which represents the load carrying capacity. (All passenger car tires in the U.S. are also marked with their actual load limit in pounds.) The letter part is the speed symbol, 'H,' in this example. This is the maximum speed for which the tire is rated at the load specified by the load index. In this example, 'H' means speeds up to 130 mph. Dunlop does not recommend the use of any of its products in excess of legal speed limits. Speed Ratings do not necessarily imply that the performance (handling and grip) of the tire meet the performance standards implied by the ratings.

Tire speed ratings must exceed the maximum speed capability of the vehicle to which they are fitted. Not all tires sold in the U.S. are speed rated, although many modern performance and luxury cars are equipped with speed rated Original Equipment tires. It is important to remember this when replacing the tires on your vehicle. Replace tires with equivalent or higher speed rated tires. Do not downgrade speed ratings from Original Equipment ratings.

NOTE: Speed Ratings - where applied are indicative of high performance characteristics based on European ECE 30 Indoor Wheel testing as performed by Dunlop and are not valid for damaged, altered, repaired, under-inflated, overloaded, excessively worn, or re-treaded tires. Dunlop does not recommend the use of any of its products in excess of legal speed limits.

SERVICE INDICATORS
Some tires carry additional markings related to service. An M&S or M+S designation means the tire is rated suitable by the manufacturer for mud and snow use. The guidelines are set by the Rubber Manufacturers Association (RMA) in the United States.

ALL-SEASON DESIGNATION
This is a marking which means that the tire meets M&S/M+S requirements without the drawbacks of noise and rolling resistance associated with the traditional deep-lug winter tires. The M&S/M+S designation means that the tire is suitable for normal all-weather driving applications. Tires that meet the requirements of the M& S designation have better winter traction compared to those without the M&S symbol.

North American tire manufacturers and the RMA have established a voluntary, industry-wide definition for passenger and light truck tires intended for use in SEVERE SNOW CONDITIONS. Tires must meet a performance-based criteria featuring tread pattern, construction elements and materials which generally provide snow performance superior to that of tires bearing the RMA current M&S Rating. Such tires will display a mountain/snowflake symbol.

D.O.T.
The 10 digit D.O.T. code number molded into the sidewall designates the manufacturer and plant where the tire was produced, the tire line and size, and the week and year the tire was manufactured.

MAXIMUM PRESSURE/LOAD
All passenger tires are marked on the sidewalls to indicate maximum load capacity and maximum inflation pressure. Truck tires will indicate recommended pressure for maximum loads for both dual and single application.

HARMONIC MARKINGS
Red dots on Dunlop high performance tires for match mounting purposes. These dots mark the 'high spot' of the tire, which is then matched with the 'low spot' on the rim to cancel out harmonic vibration.

Air Pressure
Inflation pressure is of the utmost importance to the safety, comfort and durability of your tyres.

Check tyre pressure regularly, every two weeks, conducting such check only when the tyre is "cold" because pressure increases through the heat generated during vehicle running.

Over-inflation causes tyres to run hard, more vulnerabe to impacts, less grip due to reduced area of contact with the road and faster wear in the center of the tread.

Under-inflation causes undue heat generation, faster wear at the shoulders of the tyre and structural degradation of the tyre. It can also affect your braking capabilities and reduce the stability of your vehicle.



What is the only link between the vehicle and the road?
The contact patch of a car tyre is roughly the same size as the palm of your hand. A tyre has to withstand and transmit great forces. This is why not only the tyre itself is important, but also the fitting and maintenance.






Why is wheel balancing important?

Wheel balancing is necessary to eliminate vibrations caused by imbalance in the rotating wheel / tyre assembly.

If wheels are not balanced, the result could be

Uncomfortable driving

Premature wearing of the suspension and steering components, rotating parts and tyres




A driver may not necessarily sense any imbalance at the steering wheel. It could be present in a tyre and be dampened by the vehicle. This is why balancing is equally important for both front and rear wheels.

How tyre treads help improve your driving experience

Many people choose their tyres by looking at the tread pattern. Some may pick a tyre by how "cool" the pattern looks, and they may end up with tyres that emit a lot of noise while driving. Or they may discover that the tyres do not offer good grip and road handling, thereby compromising on personal safety.


What exactly can you tell about a tyre from those grooves, valleys and patterns? And is there a tyre tread that works best for you?

Here are some quick tips to help you make sense of tread patterns:

The Rubber Blocks: otherwise called tread blocks, they are the ones that come into contact with the ground and thus determine how well the tyre grips the road. The more tread blocks there are, the better the grip.
The Valleys & Grooves: when it rains, these little grooves are hard at work! Water on the tyre is channeled into them where they are stored. As the tyre roll, the water is then released from the back. If there are not enough grooves, water cannot be dispersed from the surface of the tyre which can cause the tyre to loose contact with the road, commonly called Aquaplaning.


So in short, the blocks provide better grip in dry conditions while the grooves and valleys helps disperse water allowing for better control and handling in wet conditions. To ensure that the tyre offers a safe ride, there needs to be a balance between the blocks and the grooves and this relates to today's topic - tread patterns. These come in 3 generic patterns; symmetrical, directional and the latest - asymmetrical.

Symmetrical tyre treads looks the same from all angles and can be fitted onto either side of the car
Directional tread patterns point in a certain direction and have to be fitted in a specific direction
Asymmetrical tyre treads have distinct patterns on the outside zone of the tyre that is unique and different from the pattern on the inner zone.


Asymmetrical tyres provide a good compromise to the grip and wet paradox:
Outer zone: bigger & firmer blocks for the outer shoulders to ensure cornering stability
Center & Inner zone: more grooves for better water drainage to ensure better performance in wet conditions


Michelin, the world's leading innovator in tyre technology, modeled its new generation Pilot series tyres (Pilot Sport and Pilot Preceda) on a four-grooved asymmetrical tread pattern with different rubber compounds used for the inside and outside of the tyre. The result is a tyre that is perfectly suited for the tropical climates of Asian countries as it is designed for superior road grip and steering precision in both wet and dry conditions
