    Tire Pressure/Traction Comparison Chart

    Found this chart showing traction improvement at different tire pressures. I didn’t check the math but the percentage improvement is impressive.

    I've seen something like that before. Pretty cool to see. Someone did something similar by actually driving on dust or chalk and then photographing each pressure. Results were similar.

    Nice!

    Too bad they didn't show it at 12, 10, and 8, or even lower.

    That is pretty cool to see how much less pressure is applied to the ground at 15 psi.

    I agree it would be better to see from 25 down to 5.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
