First Tyre dealer to bring international best practices by using the latest torque wrench (meter) for the 1st time in India

Imagine if the bolts of your car wheels were made of rubber. If you dint tighten them enough you are in danger and at risk of the wheel slipping off during a drive. If you tighten them up too much they will simply break. Sure your wheels aren’t held on your car with rubber bolts but one should remember that the metal bolts used on your wheels function almost the same way!

Alternately imagine you have encountered a flat tyre and are not able to unscrew the bolt on the tyre because it is too tight !

To add to essential tyre safety, Siremull Hirachand’s “Tyrestore” introduces the Torque Wrench (Meter) which is used at the end of a tyre change process to ensure that the wheels are tightened optimally for safety. Torque is the amount of pressure used to tighten the wheel nuts.

The Technology:

When you install the bolt in an application and begin to tighten it with a wrench it begins to stretch and load up a force along its length. Just like a rubber bolt, if you tighten a metal bolt too much it will break the bolt (and/or damage the application), but if it's not tight enough it will not have the proper preload to hold the application together. You could just tighten up the bolt as much as you can, but in most cases an engineer has calculated how much "give" should be between the bolted surfaces to assure minimal wear and maximum application life in whatever bumpy, cyclic environment the bolt is designed to be used. The term torque is used to describe the amount of pressure used. The answer to achieving the proper amount of preload is to use a torque wrench, and just as importantly to use it correctly. All tyres for any vehicle should be fitted using the proper torque, in accordance with the manufacturer's specifications.

The main advantages of the Torque Wrench (Meter) being:

  1. Safer drive during high speeds
  2. Confirming to international best practices
  3. Confirming to Manufacturers specifications
  4. Ease of removal of bolt from wheels during a puncture by self
  5. Ensuring longer bolt life
