An air bubble in your tire means that its inner lining has ruptured and air has leaked out. Most of the time, the bubbles result from impact damage.
The weak spot in the tire can inflate as the tire is pinched between the wheel and the road or a curb.
Air leakage can also be caused by driving over bad roads and other external factors that result in impact damage.
Installing the right tires on your vehicle is important to the overall performance and safety of your vehicle. Your tire choice should reflect the conditions you drive and your vehicle response and handling preferences. You should understand what tire size is right for your vehicle to be able to make the right choice when it’s time to buy tires.
If you decide to substitute a new size or tire type, consult an authorized tire retailer who can expertly advise you because many optional tire sizes may have different load capacities and require wheels of a different rim width or diameter and different inflation pressure.
Always consider this maintenance for your car engine/car cabin to avoid problems and remember that you also breathe air filtered by your vehicle’s internal cabin air filter.
- First, locate your filter which is situated in the hood of the car. It is in a black rectangular box, which might have metal clips used to keep it closed. You can see it as soon as you pop the hood. If you don’t find it there, then check the owner’s manual for assistance.
- After locating it, remove the casing and observe how the air filter fits inside. It is important to note the direction of the filter. Make a note of the directions of the filter and remove it.
- If the filter is mostly clean, you can clean out the debris from your filter by using compressed air. This can improve the life of the filter and help your engine run efficiently. Then place back in the same way.
- If the filter is dirty, removing it and insert the new filter the same way the old one fit and in the same direction. You will see that it will sit perfectly into it’s housing. (Be sure it’s the correct filter type)
- Now close the air filter casing after you are done. Make sure it fits correctly, just like the filter. You’re done.

|Maintainance to be done
1. Understand that the primary function of tread on a tire is to divert water from beneath the tire to improve traction and avoid
hydroplaning on wet roads.
2. Look at the tread pattern. These are small bridges that form between your treads.
3. Check the tread by using the penny test. 2/32-inch minimum tread depth requirement. which require motorists to replace a tire when the tire wears down to that depth.
4. Use a tread depth indicator or gauge. You can use a special tread depth indicator or gauge tool to measure your tires tread.
5. Make note of any improper tread wear, improper inflation pressure, and out-of-spec tire alignment.
6. Check for any abnormal bulges or “bubbles” in the sidewall.
7. Notice a vibration in the steering wheel and check for dry rot. If you see little cracks all over your tires. it means that the rubber is breaking down.
8. Replace the tires at least every 6 years. If you’re not sure. the minimum replacement time that is recommended by the NHTSA is six years regardless of use. with 10 years being the maximum service life for tires.
