Rubber is predominantly used for tyre manufacturing. Isn’t it a curious thing? Roadstone Tyres cannot remain hard, they need to become soft so they can grip the road surface giving traction to the vehicle. Rubber and its compounds provide this much-needed quality to the tires. Rubber tires become pliable as the friction generated at the contact surface generates heat. But intense heat as experienced in the UAE is detrimental to the quality of tyres. Heat causes the tyres to crack up, and lose their integrity leading to sudden blowout while driving. It is a big safety hazard and it is reported to have been the single most reason for road accidents in the cities of UAE like Dubai, Abu Dhabi amongst others.
How to protect yourself from an accidental tyre blowout?
The obvious answer to that question is to choose tires that will dissipate the heat generated due to friction. The heat generated at the tyres increases the temperature of the tyre when driven for long duration and at high speeds. Adding to this situation if the tire is worn out then the blow out will happen sooner than later.
A critical specification given on the tyre itself will help you choose the right tyre for the heat in the UAE. The UNIFORM TIRE QUALITY GRADING (UTQG) categorizes the tire based on the following categories – Treadwear, Traction, and Temperature rating.
The UTQG temperature rating is an important parameter to choose tyres for the intense, sweltering heat of UAE. The temperature rating signifies the ability of the tire to dispel heat or resist temperature increase. It is rated for tyres as A, B, and C, with A being the most suitable to weather conditions in UAE.
If your going in for new tires, and if the UTQG rating is anything but A or at the min B, then they will not be able to withstand the extreme temperatures of UAE and a blowout would be imminent in the future.
