Is the temperature of my tires affected by anything other than the assigned grade?

May 12th, 2016

Yes. All tires will run higher temperatures when they are under inflated or over loaded. It is very important to check the pressure in all of your tires before starting out on a trip where you will be driving at highway speeds for more than an hour. Always inflate the tires to the recommended pressures before starting on the trip. This precaution will help any tire run cooler.
