SOURCE: Tyre pressures

hi,general rule of thumb for most big road bikes is 34psi rear and 32psi front,generally if pressures are to low the outside edges will wear and it will handle like an old horse and cart,if the pressures are to high,the centres of the tyres will wear really bad,and it will feel very skittery on the road due to the low contact area...hope this helps...cheers ian

SOURCE: What are the recommended tyre pressures please?

Hiya there,

Right then, not exactly the easiest or most straightforward of questions, but as you are a motorcycle rider, this should be easier for you to understand as you have a better idea about the road; than most peoples' perception.

So, tyre pressure? Well of course there is a recommended baseine, but there is also fluctuations you have to allow for; these variables take the form of wether you are uing the bike in warm, hot, cold, wet or dry condtitions; and all of which your tyre pressure is based and adjusted by. Heat, cold and certain road conditions means you will have to make allowances for the pressures within your tyres. Also if you have a lower pressure in your tyre and you ride on a hot day, your tyre pressure will increase.There is a problem with this, if you already have high pressure within your tyres and you decide to go out for a heavy-duty long motorcycle ride. This has a good possibility that you will get a blowout (where the tyre fails dueto extreme high temperature within the tyre walls and the pressure i too much for the compound to take, and as a result; it explodes).

FYG Michelin's website recommends 2.2 Bar Front and 2.4 Bar Rear for all the tyres recommended for use on all the ST series (2/3/4 & 4s) but these pressures only apply to their tyres as the construction is considerably different to some other manufacturers particularly with regard to weight.
Too high pressure will cause premature wear on the centre and reduced grip.
(This may show itself as quicker response due to lack of resistance to turning input)
Lower pressures will cause less wear on the centre and possibly less effective grip in the wet in road conditions due to the tread closing up but can be used to compensate for the higher temperatures developed on track (track days etc)

The best thing here to do is (carefully) wheely on down to Ducati, and get them to tell you; or consult the owners manual, and also the guide on what the tyre company (who supply yours) have to say about this.

Somewhere in the region of 30-32 Psi on the front and 30-35 Psi on the rear should be about right. Remember, hot conditions, slightly lesser, cold, slightly more.

I hope this is the fixya for you and I look forward to hearing how you get on.

Yours sincerely

Oz

P.S.

Please do leave feedback on this, as here there are a lot of questions writing in about tyre pressures and Ducati are a common bike that do attract questions. Your feedback is greatly appreciated as so it too can assist fellow riders in maintaining their pride and joy; and keep them safe for many years.

Thanks again and stay safe on those open roads!!

Tyre Pressure for Majestic 19.6 ft Caravan


Depends also on the kind of tyre.
For the maximum load of tyre nex kinds need next pressure , wich is called AT-pressure/maxloadpressure/reference-pressure , for up to maximum speed of tyre or if lower 160km/99m/h. This is not the maximum pressure of tyre.

Normal car tyre /standardload AT 2.5bar/36psi ( exeptions as low as 2.2)
XL/Reinforced/Extraload AT 2.9bar/42psi ( exeptions 2.8 and 3.0)
6PR( plyrating) /C-load AT 3.8bar/55psi EUR ( USA 50psi/3.4bar)
8PR/D-load AT 4.5/4.8 bar/ 65/69/70 psi
From E -load is not often used in Europe.

From this AT pressure you can calculate the needed pressure for lower loads . Made spreadsheet for it in wich I first add 10% to the assumed load before calculating.
Will give example picture

What is the standard tire pressure?


Recommended tyre inflation pressures are stamped into the side-wall of the tyre. Tyre pressure is down to personal preference within the recommended range; higher pressures roll faster, lower pressures are more comfortable. Don't go too low for fear of punctures.

What are my tyre presures for a peugeot306 saloon petrol 1.400cc


Manufacturer's recommended pressure is normally molded into the side of the tyre. If you can't find a recommended pressure, 32 psi is a good guess for automobile tyres.

Recommended tyre pressure


The required tyre pressure is established by the amount of load or weight that the tyre is carrying. Over or under inflation can cause excessive tire tread wear. The recommended pressures for your tyres are shown in raised lettering on the sidewall of the tyres.
Depending on what you are towing, you will know how much additional weight is being placed on the cars rear tyres, and you can adjust the pressure accordingly.
Personally, When I am towing, I increase the tire pressures by about 5 psi just to reduce sidewall flexing and create a more stable towing package.
Hope this helps.

RECOMMENDED TYRE PRESSURE


Check the inside of your driver side door. It will have the recommended tire size/specs along with pressure recommendations. Including your vehicle year, make, and model would help in the event of future issues.

What are the tyre pressures for a 1994 Hyundi Excel


Check on the door frame or the door edge itself. It should have a sticker that has recommended tyre pressures for your particular vehicle. If the sticker is gone, then I would recommend calling a dealer to see what the specific tyre pressures are for that vehicle.
