PCL’s Best Tire Pressure Gauge for Racing
Rally Tire PSI
How are rally tires different from regular on-road tires?
Rally tires have two distinct things about them:
- They have stiffer sidewalls to prevent damage/punctures since tracks are rarely smooth and drivers are likely to find rock/debris in the road.
- They have beefy tread, once again to help with the terrain that these drivers are tackling.
So what PSI should you run your rally tires at?
A lot of drivers like to hang around 40-45 PSI, depending on conditions. However, due to the stiffer sidewalls, rally tires can run lower pressures and are at less risk of debeading. As a precaution, though, always consult the manufacturer guidelines so that you know what your specific tires are meant to handle!
