Why tyre burst during summer?

Why tyre burst during summer?

Answer:

an moderately overinflated tyre would not burst, it will cause poor grip and a stiff ride it would take a deliberate act to blow a tyre by overinflation, The main cause of blow-outs (as opposed to puntures) is drastic under-inflation, what happens is the tyre is flattened more than it is designed to be, and as the tyre rotates, the flat area is rotated around the tyre as the wheel turns (as obviously it is only flat where it is in contact with the road) and it is this rapid flexing which increases the faster the wheels turn, that causes the tyre to heat up beyond it's design capabilities and it starts to break down resulting in a blowout, obviously, the warmer the weather, the chance of the tyre heating to beyond it's capability is increased. :) :)
The tire expands with heat and contracts with cold, just like many other rubber products. It also depends on th quality of your tires. Some high-quality tires can work well even though it's hot summer.
The more heat there is the greater active are the molecules bumping around. They need more space, or they increase pressure. If a tire isn't seated well, or weak; more pressure makes it pop.
your gain by adding this cold air will be about 4 - 7 hp and about 2-3 torque - so you are looking at a small amount of gain if that is all ou are gonna upgrade , is 100-150 dollars worth a 4-7 hp gain??
At cocktail parties, you will be able to say Hey baby I have a cold air intake That's about all except waste your money.
