Tires : Select Research on Pre-Crash Problems & Tire Pressure Monitoring Paperback / softback
Edited by Charles E. Rabuse
Proper tire inflation is important for several reasons.
Underinflated tires experience a greater amount of sidewall flexion than properly inflated tires, resulting in decreased fuel economy, sluggish handling, longer stopping distances, increased stress to tire components, and heat build-up that can lead to catastrophic failure of the tire, such as cracking, component separation, or blow-out.
These catastrophic failures can cause loss of vehicle control and may result in a crash.
This book presents an analysis of the data collected through the Tire Pressure Monitoring System-Special Study (TPMS-SS) as it pertains to the effectiveness of TPMS in promoting proper tire inflation.
