What Fleet Operators Should Know About Tires 380130
THIS paper is a non-technical review of an up-to-date survey of the lines of tires needed in all types and classes of fleet operation. To understand better how to get the best results from their operations, operators must know the proper type of tire to use.
The author first describes and catalogs the principle forms of tire failures, then reviews the characteristics of the fundamental lines of tires available at the present time.
Next, an attempt is made to classify the different types of fleet operation so that definite recommendations can be made as to the most appropriate tire equipment for these vehicles. The types of tire trouble most commonly encountered in each group are brought out with suggestions on how to avoid them. This part is followed by a section giving advice on the care of tires.
The paper concludes with a brief survey of worthwhile facts about repairs and retreading. An appendix contains the load-inflation tables which are most widely used.
