How to determine proper tire pressure

How to Determine the Right Tire Pressure – Car tire pressure is actually an important thing that is often overlooked by car owners.

How to determine proper tire pressure

Most of them do not know how to measure or know the correct car tire pressure. Though the air pressure in car tires must really be considered for your safety when driving, but it should not be too much and not too low.

One of the highest risk factors due to insufficient tire pressure is damage to the car rims, wasteful fuel consumption and the risk of tire bursts in the middle of the road which can lead to fatal accidents.

Here's how to determine the right tire pressure

Car tire pressure generally depends on the type of car being used and the size of the rims. For certain standard rim sizes, the tire pressure used is 30-35 Psi. As for larger sizes such as the R17 with a tire profile of 40 or 45, the air pressure used is 35-40 Psi.

Dangers of Lack of Tire Pressure on the Car

A flat car tire can cause reduced comfort while driving. Research shows that driving a car under less wind pressure results in a 5% reduction in fuel efficiency. In addition, it can also cause damage to the car rims or even a car tire burst when driving.

Another impact of the lack of pressure on these tires is the braking system that responds longer than usual, especially in the rainy season. Lack of air pressure in the tires can also cause skid or skid and reduce tire life.

The Danger of Excessive Pressure On The Car

Tire pressure that is too high will accelerate tire wear, especially in the center of the tire. In addition, tire traction will be much reduced so that the car feels swaying. This situation is clearly very dangerous, especially at high speeds on the highway, the car will be difficult to control.

Not only that, tire pressure that is too high will force the side of the tire to the edge of the rim so that it can reduce tire life. Another impact, car tires easily burst when hitting a pothole in the road, thereby increasing the risk of fatal accidents on the road.

Car Tire Pressure Check Tool

The importance of this tire pressure, inevitably makes you have to always check so that driving every day is safer and more comfortable. However, by using the right tire pressure you don't have to worry about monitoring your car's tire pressure every day.

Wuling Confero S has the advanced TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) feature which is very useful for displaying the latest information about your car's tire pressure. This information will appear on the Multi Information Display (MID) screen. On this screen you can clearly see the pressure information of each of your car tires directly from the car dashboard.

There are two types of TPMS, namely direct and indirect types. Inside the TPMS there are direct sensors that function to monitor the air pressure and temperature in each tire. Using wireless technology, the read data will be sent directly to the instrument cluster.

While TPMS does not directly use the wheel speed sensor which functions to measure the rate of change of each wheel which will be read by the system. If the sensor shows a drop in tire pressure, the data will be sent directly to the instrument cluster.

By using this advanced feature you will avoid the risk of under or over pressure tires. You can monitor tire pressure directly from the MID screen of your car dashboard, so your trip will be safer and more comfortable.
