3.16. Wheel puncture
The wheel puncture — is trouble which each driver sooner or later faces. Air can leave the punctured wheel quickly or slowly, it depends and on the size of a subject which punctured a wheel, and from what tires are established on the car: chamber or tubeless. With a small nail in the tubeless tire it is possible to go many days before you will notice that the wheel lowered.
It is very important to define in time that there was a wheel puncture. During movement pay attention to behavior of the car: if it began to be dispersed badly, the effort on a steering wheel increased when maneuvering or course stability worsened, surely check pressure in wheels.
The simplest way to repair a wheel — to address in the next shinomontazhny workshop where repair will make quickly, professionally and, as a rule, for quite reasonable price.
Do not try to reach a shinomontazhny workshop on completely lowered wheel: it is enough to pass so some tens meters and the tire should be thrown out.
It is necessary to replace the damaged wheel spare. However this quite simple operation demands some skills.
At a puncture of a wheel turn on the alarm system, smoothly brake the car till speed of 2-3 km/h, on the I transfer try to move carefully to the region of the carriageway and to stop as it is possible more to the right at a roadside and if it is possible, outside of the carriageway. If road conditions allow and it does not contradict requirements of Traffic regulations, at a puncture of any wheel on the right side of the car nestle on the right roadside, at a puncture at the left — to left. Try not to stop the car in places where the road is badly looked through: in abrupt turns, on descents and liftings, bridges, in tunnels. If the car remained on the carriageway, first of all provide own safety and safety of other participants of traffic! Turn on the alarm system and establish a sign of an emergency stop.
