On the tire placard
A tire that wobbles from side to side is said to have ____.
Which of the following statements is not correct????
A. a cold patch should be stitched to the inner surface of the tire carcass
B. A tread puncture that is less than one-quarter inch in diameter is repairable
C. Wheel balancing is required only when new tires are installed
D.punctures should be repaired from inside the tire
Which of the following statements is not correct??
A. Belts are reinforcing materials that encircle the tire under the tread
B. The casing of the tire consists of layers of rubber-impregnated cords, called plies
C.most tread patterns are designed to work well on both wet and dry roads
D. The bead is the decorative pattern at the outer edge of the tread
Which of the following statements about sidewall markings is correct?
A. Aspect ratio or profiling indicates a grading for tread life
B. Recommended air pressure and safety warnings are indicated
C. The tires maximum safe inflation pressure and load are indicated
D. Section width is the distance between the tread and the bead
On a tire with a designation of P205/70R14, the distance between the rim and the top of the tire is ___.
70% of 205 millimeters
Technician A says front wheel bearings on a typical FWD car are pressed in and out of the steering knuckle. Technician B says the rear wheel bearings on a typical FWD car are often serviced in the same way as the front wheel bearings for an RWD car. Who is correct??
Technician A says front bearing assembly locknuts for RWD vehicles are typically heavily torqued to maintain the bearing adjustment. Technician B says the axle nut for a FWD front wheel bearing assembly is often staked in place. Who is correct?
Technician A says modern vehicles use tubless tires. Technician B only heavy duty trucks use pneumatic tires. Who is correct?
Technician A says many modern vehicles are equipped with bias ply or belted-bias ply tires. Technician B says modern vehicles are equipped with radial ply tires. Who is correct?
Technician A says tire tread patterns may be directional or nondirectional. Technician B says tire tread patterns may be symmetric or asymmetric. Who is correct?
Technician A says an incorrect tire and wheel size can affect bearing life. Technician B says changing tire and wheel sizes does not affect antilock brake systems. Who is correct?
Tire sidewalk markings are being discussed. Technician A says maximum load, traction, and wear ratings are indicated. Technician B says maximum inflation pressure, tread plies, and sidewall plies are indicated. Who is correct?
Technician A says tire traction ratings are indicated with A,B, or C. Technician B says tire temperature ratings are indicated with an A,B, or C. Who is correct???
Why are lightweight aluminum wheels superior to heavier stamped steel wheels?
Their lower unsprung weight improves handling
technician A says an incorrect wheel can affect tire clearance, or speedometer and odometer calibrations. Technician B says The wrong size wheel can also affect the antilock brake system. who is correct?
Technician A says rim diameter is determined by measuring across the rim between flanges. Technician B says rim width is measured across the bead seating areas from the top to the bottom of the wheel. Who is correct???
Technician A says nylon cord tires generally give a smoother ride than rayon, but do not have the Inherent strength needed to cope with long high speed runs. Technician B says polyester and fiberglass tires offer many of the best qualities of rayon and nylon, but without the disadvantages. Who is correct?
Technician A says radial ply tires are more rigid in the sidewall area than bias ply tires. Technician B says the belts in a radial tire restrict tread motion during contact with the road, thus improving tread life and traction. Who is correct??
Which of the following is not a type of run flat tire ?
Anaerobic self inflating
On a directional type tire, the direction of the rotation is indicated by _____.
An arrow printed on the sidewall
Technician A says the more aggressive the tread, the more noise it will make. Technician B says softer tires typically make more noise and wear longer. Who is correct?
Technician a says a vehicle can be driven indefinitely on a high-pressure mini spare tire. Technician B says using a space saver spare tire can cause the ABS system to set a code. Who is correct?
On a P215/65 R15 89H tire, what is the width of the tire ??
On a P215/65 R15 89H tire, what is the profile (aspect ratio) of the tire ???
The section width is divided by the section height is the ____ of the tire.
Profile (aspect ratio)
What is not a factor rated by the UTQG rating system?
Technician a says higher aspect ratios provide a softer ride because they will deflect more over irregular surfaces and under heavy loads. Technician B says shorter side wall heights demand stiffer sidewalls. Therefore, tires with a low aspect ratio have a harsher ride. Who is correct?
What property is not printed on the tire placard?
Lug nut torque
Technician A says the proper inflation pressure is printed on the tire sidewall. Technician B says the proper inflation pressure is listed on the tire placard on the drivers door jamb. Who is correct???
A tire that shows maximum wear on the outside edges of the thread while showing little or no wear in the center of the thread was probably caused by _____.
Technician A sets tire pressure when the tires are hot. Technician B sets tire pressure when the tires are cold. Who is correct ?
Direct tire pressure monitoring system's are being discussed [TPM]. Technician A says the tire pressure sensor is a single unit with a built in battery that measures tire pressure and temperature and transmits A signal and ID number for that particular tire. Technician B says The system does not require a relearn procedure after tires have been rotated or replaced because it knows the ID of each tire. Who is correct?
Indirect tire pressure monitoring systems use information from ______ to detect low tire pressure.
ABS wheel speed sensor's
Lateral and radial wheel runout is measured with a ______.
Technician a says radial tires can be mixed with other types of tires on the same vehicle. Technician B says tires should be replaced with ones of the same or higher speed rating. Who is correct?
Before dismounting a tire with a TPM sensor, _______.
Unbolt the air valve/ sensor assembly and allow it to drop into the tire
What type of bead loosened should be used when dismounting run flat tires?
What will not cause uneven tire wear?
High speed driving
Technician A says an uneven rumble or a grinding sound indicates possible wheel bearing problems. Technician B says wheel bearings should be checked for wear and looseness by grasping the top and bottom of the tire and trying to wobble the wheel and tire back and forth. Who is correct?
whenever a tapered roller bearing is replaced, it's ______ must be replaced with it.
