Because a Mudder’s safety is our top priority, we’ve been learning all about tyres from our Official Event Partner, Toyo Tires. They’ve got these helpful tyre safety tips to share with you, Mudder Nation:
The amount of pressure a tyre requires depends on its type and the vehicle. You can find out the optimum air pressure either printed on the side of the door, the side-wall of the tires, or in your owner’s manual. Remember that for desert drives you need to deflate your tyres to 15 Psi, but ensure to inflate them straight after your drive, not to damage the tyres.
We always recommend inflating your tyres with Nitrogen, especially in this region. Nitrogen doesn’t evaporate like regular air in the heat, ensuring increased fuel economy, longer tyre life, and improved handling.
For your vehicle to steer, brake and stay on the road safely it is vital your tyres are kept in good condition and checked regularly. The new tyre tread depth is 6-8mm and can go down too 3mm. Legally you are allowed to go to 1.6mm, but this does greatly affect your stopping distance.
