IN OUR VEHICLE TIRE WHY WE KEEP LOW AIR PRESSURE ON SUMMER AND RELATIVELY HIGH ON WINTER

When any material is heated it expands no matter what state it is in, some might change from one state to another but eventually the cubic volume required shoot up. This is the reason for keeping the pressure levels in order in any place.

If high pressure is maintained in tube(tire) of your vehicle on summer the air inside gets heated up and expands. This expansion creates high pressure enough to burst your tube. This is the reason why openly parked wheelers have every weak or vulnerable tube.

Winter has got not much to do but if you keep pressure low then it becomes too low not allowing you to ride on it. Reason is similar cooling a material shrinks it!
