Tire Pyrometer 101 for Track Cars

Pyrometers

Tire Pressure is Controlled and Set by Tire Temperature. Period. Any good chassis engineer will tell you that. If last year's tire budget was $1800 but you didn't get the full contact patch from your race alignment, then that hard earned money was not well spent.

A good pyrometer will make sure you get the correct contact patch from the inside of your tire to the outside of your tire. How do you control the temperature across a tire? By adjusting tire pressure. A tire that is over inflated will ride only in the center and an under inflated tire will cup in the center. We run a certain amount of camber in a car to assist in laying the tire flat in a loaded corner, but the final contact is dictated by the pressure of the tire making the tire contact shape.

DiscoveryParts offers a great selection of tire pyrometers to help you not only corner faster but save some of that tire budget.
