this post is gonna help
this is my old continential tyre
c the thread?? thats dangerous!
that was on the inner side..so i cud not spot it til the mechanic told me
if u can c thread on ur tyre..dun speed!!!
Persona tyres are 195 x 60 x 15...the prices are each RM225 (goodyear) and RM190 (continential)..once u decide to change ur tyre..u have to include balancing and allignment..this mite cost RM26
putting my new tyre into the old rim
easier with the help of oil or lubricant(pelincir)
once its fitted..but b balanced..
this is call balancing..
the tyre will spin..n the computer will tell if the weight is balanced
these are the weights used to balance the tyres
mine was the 5g weights..
a stretched of them!
a closer look of mine..
now its time for alignment..
this is also computerized! :)
this squarish thing is the sensor plate to check for it allignment
too left? too right?
this is the alignment reading...
after balancing and alignment process..the mechanic found out that my tyres need cambering..this is a process of adjusting the tyres so that its angle is right..this reduces the friction of the tyre n the road..so the tyre will not get "flower-less" so fast!!! then u wont haf to change ur tyres so frequent...and a new tip! switch ur tyres front and back every 10,000km..this makes ur tyres more long lasting too!! :)
had to fix a screw cause proton doesnt come with it..
this screw is the cambering screw
yay! finally good reading!! :)
thanks to Mr Nden for servicing my car and showing me my tyre changing process..it helped so much..especially wen i was driving back in a very very heavy rain!!! i guess if i over looked this matter..my car might haf skidded on the highway!! thanks!!!
