Tire Inflation Pressure and Longer Life Tires

While reading Mark Quasius’s article about “Weighing Your RV” in my July 2014 issue of Family Motor Coaching, I was reminded of a learning experience I had a number of years ago when my motor home tires required replacement.  Many of you may also have noted that your tires’ treads show uneven wear via having [...]

Weight and Loading Tire Tips

TPMS and Inflation

Tire inflation pressure is the number one maintenance issue that fleets face today. Low tire pressure can have a significant impact and affect on fuel efficiency. Fuel economy can drop almost 5% at 30% under inflation. For instance, if a specified inflation of 100 psi is not adhered to, and is actually 60 psi, it will reduce fuel economy [...]

Even fewer people check it each time they leave a restaurant, ball game, office etc.  A tire pressure monitoring system (“TPMS”) can be crucial, as it saves you the [...]
