FULLERTON, Calif. — Yokohama Tire Corporation has launched a new online tire pressure calculator to help fleet owners manage the costs of tires through proper tire maintenance. The Yokohama Inflation Pressure Calculator recommends appropriate inflation levels to help prevent under-inflation or over-inflation that can cause tire wear and damage.

“Tires 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 tires 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 local Yokohama dealers, Yokohama product experts and the Fuel Savings Calculator, which calculates savings gained from using Yokohama tires.

“The Inflation Pressure and Fuel Savings Calculators provide a one-stop shop for commercial fleet owners and managers looking to save money and maximize performance,” said Phillips.
