Electric Car Tire Guide – Everything You Need To Know

Electric vehicles have now become the vast majority of vehicles on the road. The popularity of electric vehicles has promoted the development of technology in many industries. The demand for the development of electric vehicle technology is a new highlight. Here, we explain the unique challenges that electric vehicle tires present that need to be overcome.

The difference between electric vehicle tires and fuel vehicle tires

Suspension weight: Electric vehicles are generally heavier than gas-powered vehicles because they need to carry a battery pack. Therefore, EV tires generally require better load-carrying capacity and durability.

Torque output: Electric vehicles typically offer high torque output, especially when starting off, which has a greater impact on tire grip and durability.

Energy efficiency and low rolling resistance: In order to increase the driving range of electric vehicles, it is usually necessary to reduce energy consumption. As a result, EV tires typically have lower rolling resistance to improve energy efficiency and extend driving range.

Noise and Vibration: Electric vehicles are generally quieter than gas-powered vehicles because they don't have the noise of an engine. Therefore, EV tires are often designed to reduce road noise and vibration to provide a more comfortable ride.

Tire noise control: Due to the lack of engine noise in electric vehicles, tire noise may be more significant. Therefore, electric vehicle tires usually pay special attention to tire noise control to reduce the impact of noise on the driving experience.

How do I maintain my electric vehicle (EV) tires?

No tire lasts forever, and regular maintenance checks on your electric vehicle (EV) tires are necessary. You can use some tools or methods to help you complete the maintenance of your car tires.

1. Regular visual inspections

2. Proper tire inflation

3. Rotate tires regularly

4. Wheel alignment

5. Careful driving habits

6. Seasonal considerations

7. Tire replacement

In terms of vehicle wheel alignment, tire pressure detection, and tread pattern depth detection, Autel provides a series of TPMS tools for vehicle tire inspection.

Autel TS508WF is a dedicated Advanced TPMS Service Tool, which has fast and advanced modes of TPMS service and TPMS status screen. It can read/activate/relearn all known sensors, has 4 MX-Sensor programming methods, and performs placard value reset on supported vehicles. The TS508WF displays MX sensor relearning routines on the tool, including OBDII, and enables key fob signal testing.

The MaxiTPMS TBE200 is a laser-enabled tire tread depth & brake disc wear examiner that provides users with quick and accurate wear measurements. Measure brake disc wear without having to remove tires.

The MaxiSYS IA900WA Wheel Alignment and ADAS calibration frame enables the performance of four-wheel alignment and ADAS component calibration.

    Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) Diagnostics

    The full name of particulate filter is Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). A particulate filter is a filter that can be installed on a diesel engine to prevent harmful particulate emissions. Gasoline cars produced in 2018 must also be equipped with a gasoline particulate filter (GPF), or also known as an Otto particulate filter (OPF).
