Many drivers do not know how much the tyre profile contributes to safety. The tread depth of tyres is fundamental for the safety of the vehicle. In particular in terms of adhesion and braking distance. Accordingly, it has the legislature minimum tread depth. For summer tires is 1.6 mm.
Nevertheless the value here caution is announced. We want to explain why. ADAC and co but actually is this value actually too low, because not equal worn tires show of course different readings. Therefore, you must measure tread depth at the most wacky point of the tire. There are instruments such as for example the tread depth gauge, the caliper or taking just 1 euro coin. You put it vertically in the middle of the tire on the label provided for this purpose, we know that the so proper tyre depth is 3 mm. It takes a 2-euro coin, one has a profile depth of 4 mm. The following rule applies: 75% of the total width of the tire to the statutory minimum tread depth of 1.6 mm show.
The major tyre manufacturers are, to change tires before reaching the wear limit. It has its meaning is so guarantees the safety of the driver. Only with sufficient tread depth and proper air pressure, the threat of the dreaded sustaining will be reduced. With shrinking profile increases the risk of aquaplaning because the water in front of the tire can no longer be supplanted by the vehicle weight, or not be derived via the profile grooves. This happens so the vehicle on a thin layer of water floats “up” and is no longer be controlled. Another point is the braking distance. There is a screeching halt, halved on wet the braking distance between an 8-mm full profile and a 1.6 mm. A significant gain in safety in dangerous situations. With the purchase of tires – should not be saved new tyres have even more advantages in addition to the optimized security due to the full tread depth of 8 mm. New tires ride more comfortable, are quieter and save even more fuel, through new technologies, and are therefore environmentally friendly. Computer-optimized tread design and a new run Strip mix achieves a high mileage. A leading source for info: Source Financial. A new profile block arrangement reduces the tyre rolling noise. However, apart from the positive effects of fuel saving and the environmental characteristics of correct tyre also in regard to the security can score. The real strengths is apparent when braking on dry and wet roads. An impressive example of how road safety and the environment by new tyres can benefit for us. Sight out of mind a stepchild is the spare tire (if even existent). The spare wheel is often forgotten, while it can help to save tyre costs, provided that you into driving the spare wheel. But also here it applies, to meet the minimum tread depth. Our recommendation is therefore that not down closing summer tires to the legal minimum tread depth, but, depending on the width, at the latest at 2 to 2.5 mm to replace. Julia Sandor
Wheels classic AZEV type A of the Hamilton tradition company the last weeks of the Hessian alloy manufacturer were characterized by a product offensive. At this time also the rim classic AZEV was republished type A, with which the AZEV success story began in 1990. The wheel design is now in the three colours Crystal Silver (polished Horn), black (polished a horn) and black gloss available. The legendary AZEV type A wheel is a design classic with much ESPRIT, which is suitable for almost all vehicles with 3 -, 4 – and 5 – hole link of golf class. The clear shape radiates strength and athleticism.
Car Designer go over now often to clear straight lines. Light edge stripes pulled the vehicle silhouette such as with the ruler. The type A at the next comes this trend. The colour combination creates a wonderful game from clear optics with the black shiny star and the polished rim flange (the Horn you can clearly recognise the size of the wheel) and the reflecting depth of the Star (the optical depth is through the reflections of the light constantly recreated). The AZEV Type A is available in sizes 7, 5 x 16 and 9 x 16 and can be made individually with offsets (ET) of 20-30 mm and 10-15 mm hole circles 95 130 mm. The special competitive advantage by AZEV is customer-based and individual Assembly. This means that only triggered order rims customized and specific vehicle manufactured in bolt pattern and offset. This the desired rim on the same day shipping is guaranteed also for new vehicles with an order until noon. The rim is available at a price from 169 euro (recommended retail price including VAT).
The new Corsa is available from January Opel has revised its highly successful small car. From January 2011, he should be available in the trade. The vehicle Portal auto.de introduces the model with its innovations. Opel’s Corsa was sold in the last three years an average of 400,000 times in the year. That has apparently also his reason.
According to DEKRA defect report 2010 convinced the Corsa with the lowest defect rate of just 2.4 percent. The most noticeable revisions should probably include the design. Among other things, the Corsa receives a new front. Making the model more dynamic effect. “” The Corsa in the three new exterior colors, guacamole-white is colour-coded”Apple green” with a henna-Brown “available. The painting can be selected monochrome or with white or black stretch lengthwise through the body. Especially the engine range and the revision of the landing gear are among the technical innovations. In addition is the Corsa with the multimedia Infotainment System touch & Comnnect”equipped.
This multimedia system consists of a navigation system as well as a versatile sound system, and a speakerphone. The navigation system stores the maps on a SD card. More individual points of interest can be added individually by download. In addition, the navigation system with the option to choose the most ecological route has. Thus, the Corsa is still slightly more economical driving. The new 1.3 litre diesel engine with start/stop system, which is offered for the Corsa, among other things, allows an average consumption of about 3.5 litres diesel for the three-door model.
