Why Should We Perform Regular Tire Pressure Checks?
Tire Pressure will naturally decrease over time.
New tire will decrease 70 kPa (0.7 kgf/cm2) within a month.
Importance of Regular
Tire Pressure Inspection
Dangers of Low Tire Pressure
Dangers of High Tire Pressure
1. Tire Damage
- • Decreased buffering capacity and shock resistance leads to more broken steel wires or tire blowouts
- • Smaller contact area between tire and the ground leads to faster wear, especially in the center, resulting in shorter tire life
- • Increased skidding
2. Road Damage
- • High tire pressure without overloading, will damage the road due to the effects of force and counterforce
3. Rim Damage
- • High tire pressure causes greater vibration which leads to rim damage
4. Vehicle Component Damage
- • High tire pressure increases vibrations and damages vehicle components, while proper tire pressure has better buffering capacity
