Tires over heating

I have new tires on my 06 alpine 40' my tire pressure is good. we were getting tire over heating of 145 to 162 f Do the batteries have any thing to do with this. I did not replace the batteries because I got new tires on the road. Any ideas?

There are several reason for a hot tire. Underinflation, the ambient air temp, the temp of the road surface, and being in Vegas that shopuld be hot. I have a TPMS and the manual says you don't have to worry up until 175. Are the batteries your talking about in the transmitters of your TPMS sensors?

Batteries that send the temp pressure to my on board computer

Should I worry if my dash computer lights and says my tire temp is high followed by a red signal. At 145 it shows yellow at 160 it shows red

Larry.
Have you verified that your tires are properly inflated? Also have you verified the weight at each wheel position? If you are over weight at any or all wheels this could also cause tires to run hot. Also your speed could impact tire temps. Hope there is something here that helps.

All above are factors. Black top is hotter than concrete, fresh blacktop is hotter than older blacktop,.......

Are all the tires that hot...160, or just one?

What pressure are they set to?

I check my tire temperatures every time I stop and there are a lot of variables involved....Sun, wind, possible brake dragging, under inflation, ambient temp, etc.

160 is pretty high even if it's hot.

what I found on research

A very general rule of thumb is that a properly inflated/loaded tire, when up to operating temperature - one hour or more of operation - will typically run about 60 degrees F hotter than the ambient temperature. Anything above 200 degrees F could lead to tire degradation and you need to investigate for a problem.

Can replace air with Nitrogen and it will lower tire temps.

Contact Bob Dickman tire in Junction city, Oregon. They are also the only source for replacement sensors. http://www.dickmantires.com/SmarTire/programrv433.html.

They recommend 198 for the high temp alert. I set my yellow warning at 160 and my red at 180. I rarely see a yellow warning and never a red. When I have I am usually driving on curvy black top roads and the temp outside is above 100. My Inside RH dual and left front tire are the only tires I have seen a yellow warning on. The few time I have, slowing down 5-10 MPH lets them cool down.

Larry, you said your tire pressure is good, but you never said what your psi is?

On my 40' Apex which is heavy and has 295/80/R225 and I run them 120PSI cold. My PSI when warm goes up to about 135.
