Durability versus Speed
What is "Tire Break-In".
Tyre break-in is the period when you drive conservatively within a speed of 60 km/hr for at least the first 200 km or 50 km/hr for at least the first 300 km after installing a new tire to help prepare the tyre for normal usage.
The impact to the tyre running in high speed:
- Shorten tyre life since the faster you drive, the more heat will be generated which will make the tyre worn out faster.
- The rubber and carcass can melt and become separated
- High fuel consumption due to the energy waste caused by increase in carcass twisting.
- The tread can be easily torn upon a sudden brake.
