The factors which influence tyre life:
Inflation Pressure Tyre Care & Maintainence
The science and the technology that has gone into producing even the best quality of tyre will go waste if the tyres are not inflated to the recommended pressure – Pressure comensurating to the load carried. The best performance of tyres can only be achieved when the tyre is inflated to the designated pressure based on the load per tyre.
“Under inflation” or “Over inflation” on the tyre tend to impact tyre life, vehicle handling and safety. There are two factors with weight distribution of the vehicle. One is contact patch and other linked to the tyre wear. This result in heat buildup/tyre temperature and thus loss of tyre life, premature tyre removals, increased rolling resistance and fuel consumption.
“Under Inflation” is more common than Over inflation. Tyre users are not always conscious about maintaining or matching tyre pressure to the loads carried.
Improper load distribution overloads the tyre(s). This condition combines with high speed , long hauls and load transfers result in tyres wearing fast and premature removal of tyres
