AutoExpert warns against “big divorces” when fitting tires
Autoexpert Rakitin: The proposal to inflate tires with nitrogen instead of air is a trick
Maxim Rakitin, auto expert and editor-in-chief of the network automotive publication Cueto, talked about the main schemes to deceive customers when changing winter tires to summer tires in tire shops. His words Leeds Sputnik Radio.
Experts pointed out that sometimes car owners are offered to fill tires with nitrogen instead of air. According to them, this is a ploy. “This is a big and beautiful divorce story. It started with the Nissan GT-R sports car. The manufacturer was very proud that these machines came from the factory with tires inflated with nitrogen. Since then, there has been a topic that this modification can also be done with LADA Granta and the car will drive differently, it will consume less fuel, it will fly. In fact, it’s not like that,” warned Rakitin.
Additionally, there are other potential cheats during tire fitting, auto experts added. So, the masters can convince the client that the tire is of poor quality, after which they offer to buy another one from them. “Another thing is imposing unnecessary wheel repairs. This is not an epidemic of fraud, but there are such cases,” Rakitin added. He recommended contacting a reliable service center, relying on reviews on the Internet and advice from friends, so as not to be cheated and avoid unnecessary overpayments.
In the past, motorists were warned about the dangers of buying used tires. It is realized that understanding the marking of rubber is very important.
