Standard tyres have the ideal balance between load per tyre in kg, speed in km/h and air pressure. This three-way relationship ensures ideal ease of use. If you adjust one of these factors, e.g. higher maximum speed while the load remains the same, then tyre pressure must also be adjusted. An example can be found in the table below.

Narrow Rim Option
IF and VF are mounted on a wider rim than standard radial tyres. Why? To increase air volume and maintain the stability of the tyre. If manufacturers develop the tyres with a Narrow Rim Option (NRO), they can be mounted on a narrower rim than recommended. This makes it easier to switch from standard tyres to IF or VF tyres and reduces total investment. An example can be found in the table below.
Please note: NRO is not available for every brand or size. To ensure tyre stability, tyres must often be used with a higher tyre pressure than one would normally use for IF and VF tyres.
