Squeeze More Life Out of Your Tires
Tires are expensive and sometimes tough to find. The answers to these questions will help your tires last longer.
- Why is air pressure so important?
If you operate tires with too little or too much air pressure, you change the shape. When tires have the correct shape, you can apply the traction they were designed to deliver, which makes your machine more productive. Braking action also is maximized.
- Does air pressure also have a role in productivity?
An overinflated tire becomes very rigid, and it’s not going to have the right cushioning ability. Also, the machine will not corner like it should.
- What if pressure is too low?
Tires will flex in areas that aren’t designed to flex. That will cause fatigue and wear and tear, and the tires will fail prematurely.
- Are there any other steps that will extend tire life?
Nothing is more important than regular monitoring and prompt service.
