It is essential to know about the tyre pressure before driving any vehicles. So here are some points to know about the tyre and the tyre pressure.
Why correct tyre pressure is so important
Tyres are only one thing which always contacts between the roads and vehicles, that’s why maintaining the tyres are most important and checking pressure regularly.
The correct tyres pressure is important for the safety, gripping, braking and it also increases the lifetime of tubes and tyres.
The volume of tyre pressures according to a wheel?
You will find that pressures vary according to the load of the weight in your vehicle e.g. when you travelling alone the weight of the load and the pressure in the tyre are different from when you travelling with your vehicles with family, baggage, luggage, etc.
Usually, the right tyre pressures are located on the pressure chart, which is given in the handbook of the vehicles or the small sticker sticks in the tyre or when you visit petrol stations.
In most petrol stations you will measure the right pressure of tyres and fill the correct amount of air pressure from the pressurised.
Is tyre pressure of the same vehicle different?
It is yes, a tyre pressure of the same vehicle is different because of the higher the load. Tyre pressure difference in the same vehicle only as in front wheels and rear wheels.
According to these days, cars engines are mounted in the front side which is nearer to the front-wheel-drive or front axle. That is one of the major reasons for high-pressure recommendation by manufacturers on the front tyres than the rear tyres.
How to fill up the air pressure in tyres?
There are following steps to fill the air in tyres-
1. Buy a tyre pressure gauge from your local auto parts market, tyre pressure gauge inexpensive price range from $5 for basic gauge and more than $30 for digital gauge (in digital gauge has an air release button ) and portable in size.
2. Check the air pressure in your tyres, find a rubber or metal valve stem inside the rim of the wheel and remove the cap of the valve. Push the terminal of the pressure gauge into the tyre’s valve. Hold the pressure gauge steady and tightly, and listen to the little rushing sound of air pressure. After a few seconds remove the pressure gauge and check in the small screen on the side of the gauge. On screen, you see the value of air present in the tyre.
3. According to the pressure chart of the handbook usually car tyres pressure range from 30-35 PSI. Fill the air slightly to the pressure. Then again check the pressure of the tyre, if the filling pressure is more than the range then release the excess air using the pressure gauge.
4. Replace the valve stem cap, repeat this process to each of the tyres of the vehicle. Remember that front tyres pressure are always higher than the back tyre pressure.
What affects the tyre pressure?
The tyre pressure changes by the temperature, when it’s mild, the pressure is high and when it’s cool pressure goes under a bit. Tyres do not support the weight of your car, it supports the air in the tyres coventry, and it is usually kept at a temperature of around 32 PSI.
Things that affect your tyre pressures are-
- Temperature Condition outside the tyre (Heat or Cold), Tyre Conditions
- Road Conditions
- Sun exposure
- Leakage (Puncture or damaging of the tyre)
When do you check tyre pressure?
You should check the pressure in Tyres, when the tyre is cold because the friction due to driving causes heat up and affects the pressure.
Mainly check the pressure before starting driving in the morning when the air pressure of car tyres is in normal condition.
