Toyota RAV4>> Steering and running gear>> Wheels and tires



Install only radial tires on the car.
In radial tires of thread of a cord are located on the smallest way between tire boards. The Brekerny belt surrounds a thin and elastic framework of the tire and provides its stability.
In tubeless tires the camera is replaced with the vulcanized inside layer with high air tightness. The board of such tire has to be established on a disk rim reliably and hermetically. Lack of the camera in the tire reduces the mass of a wheel and simplifies its installation on a disk rim.
Marking of tires is put on its sidewall. Tire width, its design and diameter of a rim of a disk make the minimum information necessary for marking of the tire
In flutes of the drawing of a protector of tires there are "indicators of wear of tires" the 1,6 mm high movements of the tire located at right angle to the direction. These indicators in quantity from six to eight (depending on firm of the manufacturer) are placed through equal distances on a tire circle. Markers on a tire sidewall (for example, the letters "TWI" or the pictogram in the form of a triangle) show location of indicators of wear of tires.
Tires can be operated before achievement of depth of a profile of 1,6 mm, that is flutes of a profile have to have depth on all surface of the tire not less than 1,6 mm.
Optimum performance data of tires are reached only in case of installation on all wheels of the car of tires of one design.
At installation of the tire do not establish them on the damaged, deformed disk rim with corrosion traces.
At installation of the tire with the directed road drawing (are determined by an arrow on a tire sidewall) it is necessary to provide it the right direction of rotation. At the same time the optimum behavior of the tire concerning coupling with a paving and wear will be provided.
Maintenance of the recommended air pressure in tires at the movement at high speeds is especially important. Therefore surely check air pressure in tires, at least, once a month and before each distant trip.
Always check air pressure at cold tires.

       PREVENTION
At the elevated pressure of air in heated tires do not let out the air from the tire at all.

At considerable change of loading it is necessary to change respectively air pressure in tires.
The lowered or elevated pressure of air in tires reduces the term of their service and worsens road performance of the car.
Continuous check of a condition of tires will allow to find in due time intensive wear and to remove its cause that will allow to avoid more serious consequences.
On the all-wheel drive car, besides, all tires have to be identical model of the same manufacturer. Otherwise the interaxal differential because of the arising difference in the frequency of rotation of wheels of both axes will incorrectly redistribute the torque of the engine falling on a back axis that can have an adverse effect on controllability of the car.
In use the car under the influence of various reasons balancing of wheels can be broken that is shown in emergence of vibration of a steering wheel.
The imbalance of wheels leads to the increased wear of details of steering, tires and suspension brackets of the car therefore at emergence of an imbalance surely balance wheels anew.
