Yokohama launches inflation pressure calculator in the US
Yokohama Tire Corporation has launched an online-based resource tool that helps fleet owners effectively manage the costs and pressures of their tyres. The Yokohama Inflation Pressure Calculator recommends appropriate inflation levels, thus preventing under-inflation or over-inflation that are often the culprit behind the most common tyre wear, tyre damage and excess fuel consumption.
“Tyres are the third-largest expense for fleets and so optimizing their service life for longevity and fuel efficiency is a critical business activity, especially in today’s economy,” said rick Phillips, Yokohama director of commercial sales. “The Inflation Pressure Calculator is designed to optimize the performance of commercial tyres on the steer axle, drive axle and trailer axle based on load rating and whether a truck has a single or tandem configuration. This allows for specific recommendations to be returned, making the Calculator that much more helpful in positively impacting a truck’s operation.”
The Inflation Pressure Calculator also connects users to Yokohama dealers local to the US, Yokohama product experts and the Fuel Savings Calculator, which calculates savings gained from using Yokohama’s fuel-efficient tyres such as the 101ZLT steer product.
The Yokohama Inflation Pressure Calculator can be found in the tool chest within the commercial section of yokohamatire.com.
