How can you keep the tyre "pressure rise" down?
By applying some science!
Using TyrePal sensors, I note the cold pressure and the pressure during a normal journey - if the difference is more than 5% I use slightly higher cold pressures next time (never exceeding sidewall maximum of course) - remembering that most sensors are only accurate within 0.1 bar, about 1.5 psi.
The ambient temperature and direct sunshine have little effect on % increase once the journey is well underway - they do affect absolute temperatures but not the percentages.
It's the - "might have been a development engineer" in a different world that comes out some times.
I've done the same for the car - and as posted a 5% rise in normal solo driving can become 15-20% on a spirited country drive.
