Don’t buy these 3 kinds of tires, they are fake!

In fact, there is no fake tire worthy of the name. The so-called fake tire is actually a tire that is not standardized and does not meet the qualified standard. For example: Grind off tires, retreaded tires, parallel imported tires, etc.

How to distinguish these tires?

1. Grinding off tires

Now the tire market is full of all kinds of standard tires. Many consumers don’t know much about standard tire grinding, and some think that the standard is knocked off during transportation. Some unscrupulous traders take advantage of this to make all kinds of grinding tires, such as grinding brands, grinding product codes, and erasing QR codes, blatantly sell.

Now most of the standard tires on the market go through the channel of smuggling. It can be said that smuggling is the main culprit of the rampant tires. Some people have said that grinding the standard tire just wears off the standard, and it has no effect.

We tell you that the impact is great, and the standard tire can not enjoy the three-guarantee service of the manufacturer. In this way, the tire quality is not only not guaranteed, but also damages the rights and interests of consumers.

2. Retreaded tires

Retreaded tires are tires that have been retreaded and resold, so why are they called fake tires?

Because most of the renovation market is dominated by “small workshops”. There are not many companies that can apply reliable technology to retread tires, and most of the retreaded tires are not safe. There are great security risks.

Many people injured themselves because they bought retreaded tires and suffered a puncture during use.

A truck driver who bought a cheap retreaded tire from a roadside shop was killed in a traffic accident.

3. Parallel tires

Parallel tires refer to tire products imported into local countries through illegal procedures. Because parallel tires have not been certified and approved by tire manufacturers for China’s usage (eg: roads, climate, driving habits, etc.).

Parallel tires are not sold to specified countries, so their formula and carcass structure have not been changed accordingly during production. Parallel tires have thinner sidewalls and softer particles.

In order to cope with complex roads, domestic tires have added a two-layer carcass. There is a covering layer between the tread rubber and the carcass to prevent water vapor erosion, and more silicon elements are added to optimize the structure. Most of the parallel tires do not have these configurations. It can be seen that when running on domestic roads, the life of parallel tires will be greatly shortened, and they will often be “acclimatized”.

Take some tires made in Europe as an example. Because the road conditions in Europe are good, the tire material is soft and the wear resistance coefficient is low. If it is used in China, a variety of complex roads can easily cause such tires to bulge or even puncture.

Moreover, the source of parallel tires is unknown. Whether he is true or false, we cannot consider whether there are any quality problems. Even if there is a problem, tire companies will not be responsible for these tires.

Therefore, parallel tires are called fake tires because they cannot guarantee quality and safety.


The current tire market is a mixed bag, and there are always unscrupulous profiteers doing business with inferior tires, which not only damages the rights and interests of consumers, but also endangers the lives of others. Therefore, everyone who buys tires must buy them through formal channels.
