Is there a measure against flat tires on cars?
Release Date: July, 2020
It has been three years since the delivery of my home Panamera, and now it has been flattened three times. The first time,The second time there was a nail stuck in the front wheel,The third time, tires have deteriorated and air is gradually leaking from the place where I repaired it.That was the cause.(At the time of the third puncture, I changed the tires to Michelin Pilot Sport 4)
And the other day, when I started the Panamera engine, the air pressure error was displayed again. Moreover, it is the right front wheel again...
After that, when I looked at the air pressure deviation, unlike the usual flat tire, the air pressure of all four tires was decreasing.
Just in case I emailed my husband,
This time, the air pressure was all the same, so it may have just disappeared naturally. What if I worried about bringing the Porsche Center?
I've heard that somewhere in the car suddenly breaks when the parting with the car approaches, but recently "Say goodbye to PanameraI wonder if I'm damn Panamera's mood... I was worried if it was a flat tire, so I decided to see it at the Porsche Center just in case.
I made a reservation by telling the situation, brought in Panamera on the day, and waited while drinking the iced tea that was served, but the service in about 10 minutes,
This time it was just flat air pressure, not puncture. You don't have to hurry to drink, so please take your time.
I told you.
I wonder if it was... good! !!
I'm glad I brought the car right away, and I'm relieved to see it in person. After all, I had to get four tires inflated pressure to go home, but I thought it was kind of like drinking just tea and going home (sweat).
Ingenuity to keep tires flat
I usually try to be a little conscious of the tires to keep them flat.
For example, the nail that the previous car stepped on flew away,Keep an appropriate distance between cars so that you don't step on the nail with the front wheel of your carAnd,Do not get too close to the median strip, zebra zone, etc. when turning rightAnd(It seems that nails and stones may have fallen)…But all the flat tires I have had so far are on the right front wheel, so it may not be effective even if I'm aware of it.
Also, it is better to run as long as possible for the tire,Do not suddenly accelerate by depressing the accelerator when startingOr, I try to be as smooth as possible so that the steering wheel operation when turning a curve does not put a burden on the tires, but it is unavoidable when it becomes a flat tire, so this is unavoidable.
By the way, my husband is trying to prevent punk
It's hard to prevent punctures consciously. Boxster once had a flat tire with a nail stuck in the rear.
Basically, punk isA case where the front wheel winds up a nail or the like and steps on it with the rear tireMost likely.
It seems that the front wheels are flattened due to mischief or stepping on the nails of the preceding vehicle with the front wheels, so it seems stochastically lower than the rear tires. All Panamera's front wheels areIt may be related to the fact that the front wheels are also torqued by 4WDIt may be.
I am anywayI run as much as possible to avoid areas such as the zebra zone and roadside belts that are likely to have a lot of dust and dirt.I mean I also avoid behind trucks and construction vehicles.
However, there is a limit to avoiding it, and punctures will always occur at some point in probability, so I prioritize measures against punctures rather than prevention. For example, I always carry a flat tire repair kit and jack when I go touring. (Only GT3 is a center lock wheel, so it is impossible to repair it on the go. So I gave up.)
Well, as long as you drive a car, punctures are something that can happen, but I thought once again that I would like to be careful and be calm and able to deal with them when they become.
