Volkswagen Polo Service & Repair Manual / Whels, Tires, Whel Alignment / Tire Information / Increasing Temperature Due To Low Tire Pressure

The diagram shows the temperature behavior of a tire at speed of 180 km/h (111.84 mph).
A -  Normal range: when maintaining the specified tire pressure, the temperature remains stable.
B -  Danger zone: when the air pressure is 0.3 bar (4.35 psi) below specification, the temperature rises to above 120 °C (248 °F) at higher speeds.
C -  Critical temperature limit: The tire defect is triggered.
T -  Temperature in °C
t -  Driving time in minutes
