Eliminating slip

Check conditions before and during the test drive
Check all suspension components front and rear axle for damages.
Check and adjust the tire pressure.
Check the tires for visible defects. Punctures, cuts, bulges on the sidewalls, the local wear due to braking with locked wheels and / or damage to the tread.
Find out whether a tire puncture, such as a nail or similar damages and whether to repair the tire dealer. In the presence of such a tire should be replaced.
Check evenness of wear and tread depth of tires.
Whether all tires of the same type, model, and have the same tread pattern.
When the tires with non-directional tread pattern, check that all the symbol DOT was outside. Perhaps the car has previously made replacement tires or wheels.
These are the types of tires authorized plant for the assembly factory.
For a test drive, use a flat, straight, not sloping road without rutting.
Test-drive, taking into account all the above mentioned conditions.

At the time of driving experience should not be a strong crosswind.
Before starting work, you must read the following instructions, otherwise the effort may be in vain.

Before the first permutation mark tires / wheels, for example, FL, FR, RL, CP.

After moving the wheels or change the direction of the tire on the disc you must follow the behavior of the car during a test drive. Mark what the tires and / or wheels permutated.
It should determine the intensity or change in the slip.
This test drives must be carried by one master on the same stretch of road. It is better to pass "test site" to both sides.
Replacing the tires on the new does not ensure the elimination of slip. Therefore, it is recommended first wheel purposefully rearranged, as described below.
When a large difference in the depth of tread on the front and rear axles, tires with higher tread depth should always be mounted on the front axle.
