Recommended tire pressure for trucks

Recommended tire pressures for trucks - Lack of basic knowledge of recommended tire pressures for trucks will result in sub-optimal service life.

Recommended tire pressure for trucks

Here are the recommended tire pressures for the truck

1. Choosing the right truck tires according to operational needs and used according to the specifications of the vehicle used.

2. The wind pressure is adjusted to the load of each shaft

3. Monitor the condition of truck tires and overall air pressure periodically. If an object is found that is punctured and injures the tire box, it must be repaired immediately.

4. If possible, use the Multi Life concept, namely: Regroove + Vulcanize + Vulcanize

5. Regularly check the condition of the legs of your truck as well as replace spare parts so as to save repair time.

6. Carry out proper disassembly, sometimes a tire repairman in a company does not have knowledge of bias and radial tires so that there are many misunderstandings and incorrect maintenance that can be fatal for the tires themselves.

7. Another thing that is no less important is the understanding of drivers and customers regarding the differences between bias tires and radial tires as well as the weaknesses and strengths of each product that affects how to maintain and drive. Often the emergence of misunderstandings about the difference between bias and radial will be fatal for tires.

Air pressure is critical to maximizing the life of your truck tires. Underinflated or over-inflated tires can result in more costs and hazards. Tire life, ride comfort, good grip and braking:

This performance can be affected by the truck if the air pressure is not right.

Lack of air pressure can cause the truck to flex excessively within the tire casing resulting in overheating, increased skating resistance, and premature wear. In extreme conditions, insufficient air pressure can cause tire damage.

Likewise, excess air pressure can affect tire life. This results in reduced grip and unnatural wear especially on the steering axle mounting.

a) First Stage:

• Pre-inflation up to 1.5 Bar.

• Thorough tire inspection: to find bubbles, distortions or other anomalies, tires must be removed and inspected by a professional.

b) Second Stage:

• Pump with correct pressure.

• To protect themselves from the various forms of explosion that can occur, the operator must position himself or herself parallel to the tread pattern, at a distance of 3 meters.

c) During pumping:

• Tires must stand upright in the installation area.

• Operators must be equipped with hearing protection in their ears.

Weight with no-load axle is the only way to determine the correct pressure.

Things to pay attention to when pumping truck tires

• Old low pressure conveyor belts should not be pumped to the correct pressure again without a thorough inspection by a truck tire specialist. The weight of the axle under load is the only way to determine the correct pressure. Pressure Adjustment.

• Repairing tires and rims can be dangerous and should be carried out by trained professionals using proper procedures and tools. Failure to read and follow all procedures may result in serious injury and death to you or others.

Inflating all types of truck tires and wheels used in run-flat conditions or under pressure (80% or less of the recommended operating pressure) can result in serious injury and death to you or others.

Truck tires can be damaged on the inside and explode when you add air. Wheel parts can wear, break, shift, and explode separately. Tires that are used under pressure should not be returned to the repair shop until the inside has been thoroughly inspected.

The air pressure in truck tires for commercial vehicles must be adjusted to the load, speed and conditions of use. Paying attention to proper pressure is a major factor in ensuring that the vehicle is safe while driving.
