What Is Tyre ?
Tyre is that significant part of the vehicle which carries complete load of it & is made of rubber mixed with other chemicals and vulcanized. The tyre is fitted with steel plies & cords that provide strength to it. The main parts of the tyre body are:
Spine
Spine is that part of the tyre which is directly in contact with the ground.
Shoulder
Shoulder is the thicker part of tyre where the spine & side wall joins.
Bead Wire
Bead wire is that rigid part which is inelastic & inflexible and provides strength to the fitment of tire on the rim. The type of tyre and structure of bead rings used, determines the size of bead wire.
Side Wall
As the name suggests tire’s sidewall is that area of the tire which is not in contact with the ground & is in between Shoulder & Bead wire.
Plies
The plies construct the body of the tyre, they are made up of several layers of fabrics. The most commonly used fabric is polyester cord. In case of Radial tyres the plies run perpendicularly to the tread whereas in case of Bias tyres they are placed diagonally. Nowadays Radial tyres use steel belt plies for more strength & rigidity. The plies are covered with rubber so that they can easily bond with other components & seal the air. More the number of plies more is the strength of tire counted.
Heel
Heel is that part of the tire which is in touch with the rim & it helps tire to be tied right to the rim.
Main Functions Of Tyre
The most important functions performed by the tire are as follows:

  •     To provide full support to the load of the vehicle & resist heavy weight carrying by it.
  •     To transfer the engine power of the vehicle to the wheels during the curves & brakes.
  •     To direct the vehicle in all       surface conditions.
  •     To provide comfort to the driver & vehicle by reducing the roughness of the path & by providing cushioning effect.
  •     Effective in increasing the performance of the vehicle.
Reading Tyres
The information on the sidewalls of your existing tyres is the first important step in selecting new tyres for your vehicle. It looks something like 195/65R14 82 V. Having this information will make the selection of your next set of tyres a lot quicker and easier.
Typical example: P195/65R14 82 V

    P – Passenger Car Tyre
    195 - 195 millimeters nominal section 
    width
    65 - Sidewall height is 65% of tyre
    nominal section width
    R - Radial type
    14 - Means it fits 14" diameter wheel
    82 - Load index
    V - Rated to 149mph (Speed Index)
*A standard tyre has a sidewall height, which is 82% of tyre nominal section width.
*Reducing the % of sidewall height to tread nominal section width (the \'aspect ratio\') enables tyres to be wider and put more tread on the road.
*Aspect Ratio is the ratio of sidewall height to nominal section width.
What do all signs mean ?
Tyre Type
The ‘P’ written along with the size of the tyre signifies tyre for ‘Passenger Car’. Similarly ‘LT’ for ‘Light Truck’
Tyre Width
‘195’ in the above mentioned example signifies the tyre section width in millimeters (mm) measured from sidewall to sidewall.
Aspect Ratio
Aspect ratio is defined as the ratio of section height of the tire to section width.
Construction
“R” on the tyre sidewall denotes the Radial type of tyre. Similarly “B” denotes the BIAS construction of tyre.
Rim Diameter
The value written after “R” is the wheel/rim diameter in inches.
M+S
In some tyres ‘M+S’ is Mud & Snow pattern.
Load Index
This signifies the maximum load in Pounds or Kilograms that a tyre can support when properly inflated. Also the max load (Single/dual) is also mentioned elsewhere on the tyre sidewall.
Speed Index
The speed index is an alphabetical coding that represents the maximum speed to be acquired by the vehicle. For example: ‘H’ means that the tyre has the maximum speed of 130mph. One should note that it is NOT recommended to exceed the speed limit of the vehicle beyond the speed rating of the tyre. It may prove fatal.
TWI
Tread wear Indicator (TWI) It is the marking located where the tread meets the sidewall. When the tread wears & matches the TWI sign, it is strongly recommended to replace the tyres of the vehicle or re-groove them in time.
Other signs
    TL – Tubeless
    TT – Tube Type
    C – Stands for Commercial
    LL – Light load
    SL – Standard Load
    XL – Extra Load
    Arrows – shows the directional tires, that the tyre will perform better when rotated in particular direction.
Tyre Age
Before 2000, in 1990’s it was believed that the tyre is manufactured for the life of ten years, hence the old system follows the three digit system in which the first 2 digits represents the week & the 3rd digit represents the year. For example: ‘427’ means 42nd week of 7th year of 1990’s (1997).
Since 2000, this 3 digit coding is replaced by 4 digit coding, whose first 2 digits represent the week & the next 2 digits represent the year. For example: ‘4206’ means 42nd week of the year 2006
DOT
“DOT” means the tyre is complaint with all applicable safety standards established by the U.S. Department Of Transportation (DOT). A unique 12 digit serial number is followed by the DOT mark, which is a combination of numbers and letters.
UTQG
“UTQG” stands for Uniform Tyre Quality Grading, a quality rating system developed by the Department of transportation (DOT). DOT requires the manufacturer to grade tyres based on three performance factors.
Tread Wear
Better – More than 100
Baseline – 100
Poorer – Less than 100
The tread wear grade is based on a 7,200-mile wear test conducted under controlled conditions on a specified government test track. The higher the grade, the longer the expected tire life. Tread wear gradings are given in numbers. For example: A tyre graded 200 would wear twice as long on the government test track as one graded 100. The relative performance of tires depends upon the actual conditions of their use, and may vary due to driving habits, service practices, difference in road characteristics and climate.
Traction
A – Best
B – Intermediate
C – Acceptable
Temperature
The temperature grades are also described in the same way.


Tyre Care & Safety
1). Road Conditions
Following operating conditions significantly influence tyre life both in terms of wear & tear and structural durability.
    Rough/abrasive road surface.
    Paved road
    Straight road
    Broken up roads
    Hilly zigzag roads
    Unmade country roads
2). Driving Habits
Careful driving habits will ensure optimum tyre life, unavoidable damages besides avoiding serious road accidents.
Over Speeding – This is the most common habit to drive at high speed and sometimes over the recommended speed rating of the tyre. This results in excessive heating of the tyre, faster wear & hence decrease in life of tyre.
Quick acceleration & braking – Panic start & stop of vehicle also decreases the life of tyre. Sudden acceleration builds up excessive heat & sudden braking results in scrub off a good amount of tread rubber causing faster wear of tyres.
Sharp turns around the corner – Excessive wear can happen from one side of the tyre. One should slow down and take a smooth & slow turn.
Riding over stones & other piercing items – This is bad for the tire structure and causes damage to the tyre plies inside. Try to avoid as much as you can.
Parking on rough surface (pointed stone or bricks) – Always take care of the surface where you are parking your vehicle. Long parking of tyres on such surface causes damage to tyre. Be careful & try to avoid these type of objects to come under the tyre.
Speeding over bad roads & speed breakers – Speeding your vehicle over bad rough surface or over speed breakers causes serious damage to tyre structure and ply. One should slow down on bad roads & speed breakers.
3). Seasonal Effect
1)A country experiences various climatic & weather conditions from region to region, somewhere it is very dry & somewhere it is wet, hot & cold, etc. This variation influences the tyre life in terms of mileage & structural durability.
4). Tyre Pressure
Tyre Pressure checks (including the spare tyre) must be done regularly at least once in a weeks.
Tyre pressure should be checked using an accurate pressure gauge.
    Tyre pressure should be checked when tyres are cold.
    In case of under inflation and over inflation, rapid tread wear and premature tyre failures occur.
    Tyre pressure should always be maintained as per the vehicle manufacturers’ recommendations, mentioned at information placard, at door or in owner’s manual.
Below shown is the effect of over & under inflated tyre & accurate inflated tyre conditions.
Inflated Tyre
5). Wheel Alignment
1) Wheel alignment is the adjustment of the wheel angles in such a way that all the four wheels are parallel to each other & perpendicular to the ground. The primary function of wheel alignment is to enhance tyre performance & its life. (Wheel alignment is completely different from wheel balancing. Wheel balancing is the condition when weight of the wheel is evenly distributed whereas wheel alignment is the condition when all the four wheels are parallel to each other & perpendicular to the ground. If wheel is not properly balanced, it causes vibration in the vehicle at high speed, whereas if the wheel is not properly aligned it causes wear & tear of tyres.
To notice if the wheels are not aligned, one should concentrate on following factors:
 Uneven wear & tear of tyres.
 Right or left pulling of steering wheel during driving.
Wandering in the vehicle even when on a straight level road.
 Vibration of steering wheel.
Tyre Care & Safety (1)
Caster
Caster is the inclination of the steering pivot in the front or behind direction, to adjust steerability. If the angle is in front then the caster is positive and if it is behind then it is negative caster. Rear wheel drive cars have positive caster and front wheel drive cars have negative caster. Caster is there only for front wheels as only the front wheels steer.
Inflated Tyre
Camber
Camber is the inward or outward inclination of the tyres when viewed from front. If the top of the wheel is leaning inwards then the camber is negative and if it is leaning outwards then the camber is positive. The positive camber is present on the front tyres for them to stay in a straight line when driving on a straight road. Rear tyres have zero camber.
Toe
Toe measurement is the difference of the lateral distance between the front end of the front tyres and the rear end of the front tyres. Toe-in means front end of the tyre is closer and in toe-out means front end of the tyre is apart.
Inflated Tyre
Ride Height
Ride height is the distance between the vehicle’s frame and the road. During customization any change of measurement in the ride height can hamper the alignment of the suspension and reduce tyre life as well as performance. The chassis height of rear side is always kept more than that on the vehicle’s front side.
Types of Wheel Alignment
There are basically three types of wheel alignment offered for the modern wheels, which are as follows:
Front End Alignment: In this type, only the front wheels are aligned & adjusted.
Thrust End Alignment: Here the alignment of rear wheels is done in accordance to the centre line of the vehicle. If the thrust angle is zero the steering wheel will not be centered and to adjust this thing first the rear toe should be adjusted to the center line and then the front toe.
Four-Wheel Alignment: This is the most common type of alignment in which all the four wheels are aligned & adjusted with respect to the suspension.

Advantages of Wheel Alignment
  •     Reduces Tyre wear.
  •     Improves fuel efficiency of  vehicle.
  •     Improves handling.
  •     Safer & more comfortable driving.
6). Tyre Rotation
Tire rotation is vital to achieve even tread wear and long tread life. With the front tyres having some positive camber angle, the inner edge of the tyre wears faster, hence swapping a front tyre with the diagonally opposite rear tyre will increase the life of the tyre; the tyre which is now at the rear will wear from the centre as the rear end has no camber. Rotate tires at the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended intervals or at 5,000 - 7,000 miles if not specified.
Tyre Rotation
7). Cleaning Tyres
To ensure that Hamilton Tyres give their best performance and look their best, the user must use a mild soap or detergent and a semi-soft bristle brush. To rinse use clean & plain water.
8). Tire Mounting
1)As tire mounting is a difficult process, it needs to be handled with great care & by professional only. Kindly make sure that the tire diameter matches the rim diameter. Note that the tire being mounted on the rim is of the suitable application. There are some recommendations from HAMILTON which are to be taken care while tire mounting:
9). Tyre Sizing
We strongly recommend that the tyres should be fitted as per the recommendations mentioned on the vehicle manual.
10). Tyre Wear
It is strongly recommended that the tyre needs replacement when only 2/32” tread depth is remaining.
