OBSERVE! The Truck Tire Pressure Playbook

You’ve heard it all before: Tires are the second-highest annual cost for the average fleet, only behind fuel, and a major component of that is tire pressure. But why is that? What can you do about it?

Improper tire inflation is the leading cause of commercial truck tire blowouts and failures. Underinflation causes fleets to prematurely pull tires out of service, while overinflated tires are prone to irregular wear and compromised sidewall strength. Problems also arise when tread depths are mismatched and when fleets mistakenly use the wrong tire for the application, which leads to poor performance and potential hazards on the road.

In 2018, P.S.I. added the TireView TPMS to its tire inflation offerings. According to P.S.I., TireView options include a standalone solution for the truck and tractor market; solutions for trailers as an enhancement for P.S.I.’s automatic tire inflation system (ATIS) for trailers or as a standalone; and an optional flow-thru kit, which enables the sensors to remain mounted to the axle during routine tire maintenance while still providing damage protection and theft resistance, according to the company.
