Coleman Tyre Company - Tyre Pressure

Make those tyres last

Correct tyre pressure helps to ensure maximum wear from your tyres. It also optimises ride comfort and fuel economy. Warning: Driving with uneven pressures on different sides of your car could mean loss of control when braking or accelerating. The balance of your car is also upset and tyre wear will be uneven.

Over-inflation: As seen in the diagram above, the tyre is over-inflated and not sitting squarely on the road. The normal flexing of the tyre will be reduced and result in undue wear in the centre of the tread. Over inflation makes the fabric pile more susceptible to damage.

Under-inflation: Too little air in a tyre produces abnormal deflection of the tyre and results in excess wear in the shoulder area as well as excessive heat build-up. The extra strain increases the risk of fabric damage and separation failures.
