Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems

  • Günter Leister


Tire pressure is an important parameter which influences nearly all tire properties. Minimum air pressure for a tire is defined through the specifications of the ETRTO, and depends on the load index, speed index, and additional indicators such as the extra load, as well as the wheel camber while driving in a straight line. Minimum vehicle-specific air pressure is defined by a vehicle’s manufacturer, with the tire manufacturer also having a say.
