Properly Installing a Directional Tyre

Directional tyres can be a trend nowadays. This is due to several advantages such as good water dissipation capability as well as its sportier design, Forceum Hexa-R for example which meets that category.

However, because these tyres are directional, the installation must be correct. However, your usual tyre shops should already know about this, but you have to be aware of this when for example you do your own tyre rotation at home.

To know the direction of the tyre, there will be an arrow indicating the direction of the tyre. Thus, the tyre on the left cannot be mounted on the right because it will be reversed. That's how easy it is to determine the direction of the directional tyres.

If the tyre is installed the other way around, there is actually no significant difference in terms of grip on dry surfaces, it just may be a bit more noisier than usual.

However, problems will arise when the roads are wet or rainy. Because the car may feel heavier and aquaplaning can happen, this is because the flow for the water is reversed.

Therefore, simple stuff like installing a tyre has to be really taken care of, especially during the rainy season. Of course, it would be such a waste if the reliable performance of Forceum Hexa-R had to decrease due to small things such as wrong tyre installation.

Ban direksional bisa menjadi sebuah tren masa kini. Hal ini karena beberapa kelebihan seperti kemampuan disipasi air yang baik serta desainnya yang lebih sporti, Forceum Hexa-R misalnya yang memenuhi kategori tersebut.

Tetapi, karena ban ini direksional, maka pemasangannya harus benar. Tetapi, toko ban seharusnya sudah tahu akan hal ini, hanya saja harus diperhatikan ketika misalnya kamu melakukan rotasi ban sendiri di rumah.

Untuk mengetahui arah ban, akan ada arah panah yang menunjukkan arah ban. Sehingga, ban yang ada di kiri tidak bisa dipasang di kanan karena akan menjadi terbalik. Semudah itulah menentukan arah dari ban direksional.

Jika ban dipasang terbalik, sebenarnya tidak ada perbedaan berarti dalam segi daya cengkeram di permukaan kering, hanya saja suara yang ditimbulkan bisa lebih berisik.

Tetapi, masalah akan muncul ketika jalanan sedang basah atau hujan. Karena, mobil mungkin akan terasa lebih berat serta aquaplaning bisa saja terjadi, hal ini karena alur untuk airnya terbalik.

Sehingga, hal sesimpel pemasangan ban haruslah diperhatikan, apalagi ketika musim hujan. Tentunya akan sayang bila performa handal dari Forceum Hexa-R harus menurun karena hal kecil seperti salah arah pemasangan.
