TIRE INFLATION BASICS
PROPER INFLATION: THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP OF TIRE MAINTENANCE.
Many of today's tire problems are caused by insufficient attention to tire pressures. No tire or tube is completely impervious to loss of air pressure. To determine the proper inflation pressure, all motorhomes and RVs should be weighed. For proper methods to weigh your RV or motorhome, download the MICHELIN® RV Tire Guide.

THE EFFECTS OF UNDER-INFLATION
Under-inflation will increase the deflection of the sidewalls. The effect of over-flexing and the generation of too much heat will cause carcass fatigue and deterioration.
THE EFFECTS OF OVER-INFLATION
The tire casing becomes more susceptible to damage in the form of shocks and rapid tread wear.
