When driving a mountain truck in difficult conditions, the air-pressure in the tires can make a big difference for the Arctic Trucks. Drivers have to evaluate the surface and find the right pressure in the tires. Deflating the tires is essential when driving in snow and important to find the right pressure for conditions each time.
When the tires have been deflated the tires get a larger contact area with the surface, which gives more grip and flotation. Deflated tires also give a softer ride on rough roads. Unfortunetly deflated tires are more vulnareble to damage and will puncture easily. Therefore it is important to drive slowly, avoid sharp rocks, pot-holes and other things that might damage the tire.
After the driving conditions improve the tires should always be inflated as soon as possible.
