Check of a condition of tires


  1. Once completely turn each wheel.
  2. Alien bodies, for example, small stones, take out a narrow screw-driver, trying thus will not damage a profile of tires.
  3. The tire profile according to the law of 1992 has to be at least 1,6 mm in depth on all width of a protector.
  4. But for the sake of safety it is necessary to change tires at achievement of wear of 3 mm of residual width of a profile as wide-profile tires Audi A4 on the wet road emerge earlier, than narrow tires of cars of old models.
  5. For check of wear the eminences passing at identical distances across a working surface in profile grooves serve. They are designated on sides of tires by the letters "TWI" (Tread Wear Indicator – an indicator of wear of the tire).
  6. If these cambers are at one height with protector drawing, at the tire residual depth of 1,6 mm – it is necessary to change tires urgently.
  7. On nature of wear of a profile it is possible to draw some conclusions about which it is written in the following section.

Protector picture


  1. The forward tires erased on outer side are not something unusual to Audi. The reason consists in the raised load of this site of a protector during turn.
  2. The profile erased on the one hand can indicate the wrong balancing of wheels; especially when one tire is erased obliquely.
  3. Strong deleting of the middle of a profile can be also a sign of too high pressure. This effect is shown especially strongly on back wheels. Or it arises at too fast driving at which the protector surface is rounded.
  4. If both external shoulders of one tire are erased more strongly, than the middle of a profile, it means that the car a long time moved with too low pressure in tires.
  5. Uniform washing away in a profile point to the defective shock-absorber.
  6. If there is an uneven attrition in certain places, it means that the wheel is unbalanced or the tire is damaged.

 Council: If it is necessary to remove a serviceable wheel, for example, for check of a brake, in the beginning it should be noted the provision of a wheel concerning a nave. Otherwise after installation balancing will be broken. Further it is necessary to pay attention to that the brake disk did not rotate on a wheel nave.
