TYRE KNOWLEDGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 29 November 1928
TYRE KNOWLEDGE. Few car owners really appreciate the value of following and strictly adhering to the air pressure in their tyres as set out in the inflation pres sure tables, issued by leading tyre manufacturers, or know why the tyre maker asks for a certain inflation pressure for a tyre of a' specified size, carrying a known load. On this sub ject, the Dunlop Company states that when a pneumatic tyre is loaded, it is depressed or flattened over the area which is in contact with the road. This bends the casing in two ways, viz., circumfermtially, and lat erally across the tyre section. Thus each individual cord, and the casing as a whole, are flexed at each revolution — say 600 times per mile or 6 million times in 10,000 miles running. This bending gradually and normally fatigues or weaikens the casing, just as it does with a piece of steel wire. If the amount of bending is excessive, the fatigue of the cotton proceeds with extreme rapidity- One aim of the tyre manufacturer is to li...
