Tyre Pressure

Achieving and maintaining the correct tyre pressure on your ATV, Quad & Dirt Bike will ensure the tyres wear evenly. Maintaining the correct tyre pressure on your ATV is essential for safely and effectively operating your vehicle.

Tyre pressure is measured by determining the amount of air that in the inner lining of your ATV’s tyre in pounds per square inch (PSI). When your tyres are inflated to the recommended tyre pressure (PSI), you can enjoy the optimum life and performance of the tyre and the vehicle.

How do you check your ATV or Quad bike’s tire pressure?  Initially, you need to identify the recommended tyre pressure for your tyres.  Then, you can use a low-pressure tyre pressure gauge to measure the air pressure of the tyres, adjusting as required to meet the recommended PSI or to meet your needs in particular situations.

Read further to see how to best check and maintain your tyre pressure for each situation.

The Importance of Correct Tyre Pressure

Not having correct tyre pressure on your bike can cause a lot of problems. Whether it’s high, low, or uneven tire pressure, your safety when operating the ATV and the longevity of the tyres will be impaired.

Incorrect tyre pressure gives you less control over your vehicle and can put you to the risk of an accident.

Determine The Recommended Tyre Pressure

Something that many people forget to do is to check the recommended tyre pressure for their ATV and the tyre they are using. You can identify the recommended tyre pressure in the owner’s manual. If you can’t find it, check it online. The best thing you can do is use the owner’s manual for your tyres when you purchase from suppliers like Oceanic Direct.

Not all ATVs are designed to perform in the same way. Some are designed to operate in a variety of conditions, and the tyres usually have a good range of tyre pressures on which they can operate for various uses. It is best and safest if you know what tyre pressure is required for your ATV in different conditions so that the tyres perform optimally.

Checking Your ATV’s Tyre Pressure

For vehicles like cars or bicycles, you can sometimes check tyre pressure manually just by seeing or touching the tyres. When it comes to off-road tyres and their big treads, it is almost impossible to check the tyre pressure without the low-pressure gauge.

However, when buying a gauge, make sure you buy one that is recommended for your ATV. To get accurate tyre pressure, you should never check the tyre pressure while it is hot.

The normal range of tyre pressure for ATVs is between 4 to 8 pounds per square inch (PSI).
