What Parameters are Considered in Determining Tire Air Pressure in Vehicles?

Vehicle manufacturers run tests actual physical tests on vehicle tires before the vehicles are offered on the market. The main concern is the safety of the occupants of the vehicle. Performance, the efficient use of fuel, and the longevity of the tire are factors in that add up to create a safe air-pressure recommendation.

During an exhaustive regimen of tests, vehicles and their tires are put through a performance examination that covers nearly every possible scenario. Quick stops and quick acceleration tests, as well as fast turns, test the tires at different inflation levels. Longevity tests involve long distances on tires filled with various tire pressures. All this data comes together to recommend the best tire inflation level for the vehicle.

Take your vehicle to Napleton's Schaumburg Mazda for a quick tire check and to maintain the proper inflation level in each.
