Tyre Pressures

Just a short article from Linkedin worth a look at.

Pressures are very important. Hence, the constant bombardment of information . Therefore coming out of the tyre trade and I am no exception. We see the effects of tyre pressures every day here in  my tyre business in Halifax Yorkshire, UK.

As we remove the tyres from customers cars, we can see the causes of incorrect  pressures. For this reason, the tyres wear out in different ways. The above illustration shows exactly the reasons that I am talking about.

The balance between over inflated tyres and under-inflated tyres is about the same. As expected, about 50/50. For this reason, we reckon that our customers are throwing good money away. Thus, by the fact of premature tyre wear. Hence, due to not checking their tyre pressures at regular intervals.

Of course,tyre pressures can have effects on driving experiences? What do I mean? Well, many of us will have driven an overloaded car, without knowing it. I have even seen this on motorways. Because the car or even a van is overloaded and the tyre pressures have not been increased . Therefore, the vehicle becomes unstable. The worst scenario can be that the vehicle will start to swerve or snake. Thus, before the driver brings it under control gain.

Tyre Pressures on vans

This is particularly common on caravans. As a result, the caravan can even turn over.Resulting in a nasty accident, i am sure that we have all witnessed this. Especially in the summer holiday period. Most of the time this is because the tyre pressures have not being checked prior to the journey.

Vav drivers should also be aware of the problem. Of course, you would think that most van drivers are professional people. But we can see by the wear on their tyres. Especially if they have not been checked for pressure.
