Tyre Pressure

One of the most neglected tasks in motoring is checking tyre pressures.

Tyre Pressure is measured in PSI (pounds per square inch)

It is best to inflated tyres when they are cold to ensure you get the correct reading. It is recommended to inflate your tyres in the morning.

  • rapid/uneven tyre wear
  • increased fuel consumption

How accurate are tyre inflation guages?

Is there a difference between the accuracy of a mechanical style inflator guage and an electronic unit with a required pressure preset function?

The RACQ surveyed 59 Brisbane service station sites (2005) with the following findings-:

Surveyed #
Operative 52
Inoperative 5
Mechanical Style 34
Electronical Style 18

The electronic units were mostly found ot be more accurate with 94.4% accurate within 5%.

Of the mechanical units only 67.6% were within the 5% range.

Reliable Guages today

A high percentage of service stations now have the electronic inflation systems, these are very accurate with only a few parts that can cause a problem [ Air hose and tyre clip ] - but in general anyone can use these with good results.

Certain industries demand high quality Tyre Accessories - it is recommended to look for a company that sells reliable tyre guages. RLM distributing are Brisbane based and specialise in quality tyre accessories, even supplying mining tools around Australia.

RLM gauges and tyre tools are of very high quality, manufactured by industry leaders from USA, France, Italy or Germany.
