Importance Of Maintaining Correct Tyre Pressure

Published On 07-Jun-2016By TyreDekho Team

Tyre Pressure Checking

The key to  ensure that the tyres of your vehicle stay in good condition is by maintaining appropriate pressure. Understand that your vehicle is supported, held sturdily and kept in its groove only because of the tyres. They enhance and improve performance on various levels such as offering a stable ride, improving vehicle's handling and providing the much needed traction,thus helping the vehicle to stay glued to the street at high speed and corners.

Tyres with inadequate air pressure lose out a lot on their efficiency and impact your vehicle and driving experience in the following ways:

  • Weakened fuel economy
  • Poor vehicle handling and loss of control.
  • Increased stress when driving; steering feels heavy
  • Strained braking and deteriorated cornering capacity
  • High internal heat and increased rolling resistance.
  • Low traction and skidding during braking.

Apart from these, low tyre pressure also affects chassis loading, steering and alignment.

TIPS FOR MAINTAINING APPROPRIATE TYRE PRESSURE:

  • It seems very trivial indeed, and most of us fall prey to the seemingly insignificant nature of tyre importance. But tyres lose pressure by the day, and with every mile they carry one’s vehicle forth, they are pushed towards the edge. As a result, it is vital that one pays as much attention to the tyres as one would to the car's engine. One of the most effective ways is to have them checked every time you stop for fuel refill.

  • It is also very important to keep one’s tyres to the specifications of the manufacturer. It is always better to refer to the manual, or the tyre placard to ensure the recommended tyre pressure. Another valuable resource is a tyre load/inflation table. This can be purchased by a local tyre provider. It offers information regarding the air pressure for stock wheel sizes, and also for additional plus sizes too, if upsizing the tyres is on the cards.

Tyres require their dosage of attention to keep them running. Devoting a sliver of time to the tyres would be more than sufficient to establish a great harmony between you and your vehicle in the long run.
