The sizes of disks and tires/pressure in tires

The equipment constantly develops. Can be so that for older models other values of pressure in tires are admissible. Therefore it is recommended to learn the latest data in specialized workshops.

  • All these pressure belong to cold tires. Not to pit pressure increasing at a long trip by 0,2 Bars.
  • Pressure of the tire of a spare wheel of the normal size corresponds to the maximum pressure of tires at full load.
  • Winter tires as a rule have pressure upon 0,2-0,3 Bars above. It is necessary to consider recommendations of manufacturers of winter tires. As winter tires have restriction on speed, in sight of the driver the plate with the indication of the maximum speed has to be strengthened.

MAZDA 323 depending on model and equipment can have tires and disks of various sizes. However, application of wheels with depth of press fitting of 45 mm is allowed. Depth of a press fitting is a distance from the middle of a rim to a persistent surface of a wheel on a brake disk or a drum. All disks represent so-called hamp-disks. Hamp is the fillet pressed in a shoulder of a rim which prevents at abrupt turn push-up of the tubeless tire from a disk. At installation of the wheels or tires which are not specified in documents it is necessary to introduce them in documents on the car. For this purpose, as a rule, permission of MAZDA is required.

On the basis of rules depth of a protector of the tire should not be less than 1,6 mm, namely, the profile has to have depth not less than 1,6 mm on all surface. However, it is recommended to operate for the purpose of safety summer tires up to the depth of profile of 2 mm, and winter tires — up to the depth of profile of 4 mm.
