Why are bad roads considered the worst enemies of tires of truck? If a tire runs on a smooth surface through its entire life, chances are high that it would provide better service over longer duration.
On the other hand, if the tire is well driven on bad surface through its life, chances are high that its performance would be less than half of its original and intended performance.
Driving the truck on bad road leads to many problems relating to tires on a simultaneous basis. Frequent impact is going to lower the quality and performance of the shock absorbers. Further, the engine is going to suffer higher load. Thirdly, the wheel alignment is going to go out of sync very quickly.
Fourthly, the treads are going to suffer more damage. Fifthly, debris and other material will be stuck in the treads and the tire will have to work harder to grip the road. Finally, the wear and tear and chances of puncture will be higher.
All these problems will occur simultaneously. So, what solution do you have? Well, if you can avoid driving on bad roads that will be a smart move. However, this is not always feasible. The next alternative is to reduce the speed. This may not be very attractive as well.
However, you have no option because the damage that is caused to the tires may not just reduce the performance of the vehicle but also may lead to crashes and accidents. If the wheel goes out of alignment, your tires will suffer excess load despite the fact that the surface of the terrain has improved.
The investment that you have made in your tires will be reduced to zero in just one trip. You certainly do not want then to occur, do you? You should always take a look at the tires after particularly bad stretch.
If possible, you should check the air pressure to ensure that the treads do not come in contact with the roads more than necessary. It is advisable to have a spare in your hand so that you can change the tire in event of severe damage.
If you can not reduce the instances of driving on bad roads, you have no option but to go in for stronger and better quality tires. This will help you avoid damage and frequent replacements and repairs. You may have to spend more in the initial stage but this will yield returns over longer periods.
