Inflate your OTR tyres correctly

Inflate your OTR tyres correctly

"Inflate your OTR tyres correctly", recommends Michelin

Correct OTR tyre inflation is an essential factor, not only as regards the optimisation of tyre performance, but also as regards safety, says Michelin. Correct pressure is necessary for correct machine handling (traction, braking) and for maintaining the OTR tyre’s integrity.
Under-inflation and over-inflation, may have a significant effect on OTR tyre performance. An inadequate OTR tyre pressure leads to an abnormal rise in operating temperature and may result in irreversible damage to internal components and cause the destruction of the OTR
tyre and rapid tyre deflation. 
Excessive pressure can cause rapid and irregular wear and lead to increased susceptibility to impacts (tread damage, casing failure).
