Tyre Pressure

On May 25, 2010, in Car Talk: Maintenance Guide, by Ved

Tyres can wear out faster by under-inflation or over-inflation. Some effects of under-inflation:

  1. Reduced tread life through increased tread wear on the outside edges (or shoulders) of the tyre.
  2. Generation of excessive heat, which reduces tyre durability and can lead to tyre failure.
  3. Reduction in fuel economy through increased rolling resistance (soft tyres make your vehicle work harder).
  4. Check your tyres regularly for proper inflation. Abnormal tyre wear may also be caused by misalignment or mechanical problems.

Tyres can wear out faster by under-inflation or over-inflation. Some effects of over-inflation:

  1. On an over-inflated tyre, the center of the tread bears most of the load and wears out faster than the outside edges.
  2. To prevent over-inflation, always check tyres when they are cold or before they have been driven.
