FIND OUT WHAT YOU (MUST) KNOW ABOUT TYRE WARMERS BEFORE YOU BUY.

1. Cheap Tyre Warmers are 'cheap' for very good reasons, it is no accident.

Think about it. The tyre size dictates the amount of materials required to make a set of Tyre Warmers, so given the materials required and about the same time to manufacture, there 'should' be little difference in the manufacture cost, right? Well no, the reduction in price is mostly because somewhere there has been a short cut or compromise in standards. It can be the quality of materials is compromised, manufacture proceedures are compromised, essential features or temperature control method is compromised or there is a compromise in safety standards or the maker uses low cost 'sweat' Labour. Somewhere there is a compromise and you the Customer will not know until the product fails.

It is important to understand, 'cheap' Tyre Warmers are sold to fit a price expectation. They are not made to fit a quality standard or a level of performance needed by the tyre or rider. When price is the priority what you can rely on this; if there is a compromise in one area, there is probably a compromise in other areas, and often you will not understand the compromise until you have paid for it.


2. Most low cost Tyre Warmers are made by Sumomoto Industries in China. This Company has attempted to Copyright the Tyre Warmer as their Invention more than 20 years after it's invention by someone else. What sort of people or Company attempts to claim they are the Inventor of something over 20 years after the actual invention by someone else?

Sumomoto has also been caught selling copies of reputable Companies Tyre Warmers on ebay. Sumomoto Tyre Warmers are sold under many different names and often made to order under different branding, Even reputable companies have been caught out and have ordered these with their branding and while the name may be reputable, the Tyre Warmers are easily recognisable, they all look the same as their cousins. Be careful, if a Tyre Warmer retails cheaply, they are most likely made by this company.


3. Beware of Elements glued in place. Sewing costs more than most Glues so to keep costs low the element is Glued. In a Tyre Warmer the hottest place is the area around the Element, far too hot for a cheap Glue. As a result the element can easily fall out of position causing hot spots, tyre damage and Tyre Warmer failure.


4. Beware of Tyre Warmers that do not have a Thermostat. While the element length and Ohm rating can control temperature, changes in voltage can cause overheating and tyre damage. A Thermostat responds only to the Temperature and controls power supply to the Element. Thermostats are reliable, proven and low tech and they work in everything from your lap Top, the Space Shuttle and your Tyre Warmers.


5. Don't Tyre Warmers with a Digital Display look trick?
Yep, and it can be a costly 'Trick'. These Digital Displays are often one of the weakest components of the Tyre Warmer. Good quality Microprocessor Digital Displays cost around AUD$170 to $200 each so for a Manufacturer to keep the Tyre Warmer price low (and remember it is all about cost), cheaper Displays must be used. If the Digital Display used is low cost, a high failure rate or limited cycle life must be expected.

Please! do not try to save money and expect leading edge technology. Due to the design of many of these Tyre Warmers, if the display fails, repair is often not possible, you must often throw away the Tyre Warmer set and buy again.


6. Many cheap Tyre Warmers are 'made to be sold' and not made to be used. This is a very subtle point, essentially many cheap Tyre Warmers are designed to simplify and lower the cost of the manufacturing process. As you can not test them, they are sold without scrutiny, as they are badged with someone else's name you can not realy know the reliability or quality. Only after you buy can you find out if they are any good. If the Tyre Warmer fails or you have even a small problem or there is user damage, what repair or replacement options are there? Mostly with cheaper Tyre Warmers repair is not possible or viable so you must either rely on the maker (if you can find out who designed and made them) or throw away the Tyre Warmer and buy again - How much did you save?


7. MotoGP and World Championship tyre's are often hand made 'Specials', they need specific temperatures depending on their construction (usually 75 - 80 degrees C). The production tyre's us Mortals can buy are not the same. We get tyres made in production batches, they are made of different materials than the 'Specials'. Production Tyre's give best performance and tyre life heated between 65 - 75 degrees C. Many Tyre Warmers under heat or overheat production tyre's which actually reduces tyre life and cost you more for tyre's, even with the popular Digital Display, the temperature shown is for the position of the sensor not the temperature of the tyre and you will not know if it is correct until after you pay your hard earned.


8. With Tyre Warmers, you get what you pay for. Due to the market being flooded with cheap often low quality Tyre Warmers, the Customer's expectation of the Dollar or Euro value they should pay has come down to the price the cheap Tyre Warmers sell for. There are major consequences of this change in Customer expectation; 1) Companies whom manufacture a quality product are forced to reduce their margin so their support for riders, employees and community can be compromised. 2) The low price Tyre Warmer Manufacturer is often a person whom does not ride a bike (or anything like yours anyway) and does not actually understand what a Tyre Warmer does (except go hot), they often sell without concern, understanding or thought for you the Customer. They often sell a Tyre Warmer to a rider whom as a result, may have considerably higher tyre wear, higher tyre costs, has to deal with the consequences of a crash and if they have a reliability problem, has little chance of a solution.


IMPORTANT MESSAGE: Your purchase of Tyre Warmers is not without consequence for you or us, we ask you to carefully consider your choice and ask us questions. We thank you for considering our comments.
