Sometimes when a tire is mounted by a rookie, he will use an excessive amount of lubricant to get the tire in place. All of that excess lubricant/moisture may be in your tire and causing your temps to increase a little higher than normal, since you did not have that issue with your other tires.


I am reading pressure went up not temp.

The OP said "20 degree rise of the psi" so is that degrees or pressure?

Tire pressure usually goes up when the temperature goes up.

Do you notice any vibrations? Maybe these tires aren’t balanced as well and causing more heat.

Second vote that the data points don't match: If the pressure goes up, so should the temperature.

While I like the idea of reinflating the tires with known dry air (or nitrogen), I'll bet that makes no difference - which would prove my contention that even with known water in a tire, it hardly affects the pressure buildup at all.

Let's restate that:

Pressure WILL go up as temperature rises. Well proven in the 1800's. Still true today.

There are some well known "leak sealants/lubricants" which use relatively low boiling point hydrocarbons that can cause excessive pressure rise. Did the shop that installed the new tires by chance . . . . . install . . . . anything else, other than the new tires? IMO, a sniff test for contaminates inside the tires is in order.

“before TPMS you never knew or even thought about how much they increased.“
