When we talk about the wheels of our cars, we must always be careful not to run into really big problems. The alternatives are different, here are the best.
Unfortunately, it can happen that a tire gets punctured during a trip. Or, in any case, that one or several tires deteriorate over the years. According to several manufacturers, a tire change should be carried out every hundred thousand kilometers on average. But what is the best way to solve our problems in this regard? Today we will try to find out, to avoid major problems when we are on the street.
Little reminder: Uptis, the rubber of the future | what you need to know
We had already talked about it in the past, but there is nothing wrong with taking up a small reminder about the future that closely concerns manufacturers and motorists. Let’s talk about the new Michelin tires that promise to be truly revolutionary. That is, airless and puncture-proof. In short, tire checks would no longer be necessary.
The prototype in question is called Uptis and in these hours, days, months and years Michelin will work on it to make it more and more real. This is also evident from the fact that the French company is conducting tests in collaboration with General Motors; the chosen car is the Chevrolet Bolt. Such a tire really should fundamentally change the tire industry due to its unique characteristics. But the future is future and in the present, whether we like it or not, it is better to focus on actions and tangible things.
Tires, from tire changes to inflation kits: what is the best solution
It can happen, although logically nobody ever wants it, that a tire deflates while we are traveling. There are some drivers who manage to change it, but the underlying problem is that the so-called fifth wheel it is found less and less, especially in new cars. The reason? Today there are other cheaper solutions.
This addition is no small cost to a manufacturer, and in fact, many have decided not to add it anymore in favor of more trunk space. And then, however, it often happened that this rubber was not used. And if the average change is every 100 thousand kilometers, in times of need the spare wheel could be old and no longer useful.
Okay, but then how do we change a tire? Another valid solution may be the wheel. This has the sole purpose of being mounted only to reach a specialist and solve the damage that has already occurred. Then, as it is an emergency, you will have to change the other tire as well (by law at least two tires per axle must be the same).
There is another alternative: the inflation kit. To have one, you only need a compressor and a specific spray can. The latter is characterized by a rubbery substance that, when in contact with the tire, blocks the hole without allowing more air to pass through. In this way, we can inflate the wheel. However, this is also an emergency solution. Also, with serious damage to the rubber, it does not work at all. Therefore, we could say that the wheel is the best solution today.
