    In layman's terms 1 bar is equal to 14.696 psi which is one atmosphere.
    so 5.5bar X 14.696 = 80.82psi:Wink:

    1 bar =
    14.5037738 pounds per square inch at normal elevation.
    dont forget to adjust for tyre temp. pressure is given for cold.

    80psi it is then:thumb:
    Now you just need a nice set of tyre pressure monitors that will let you know when you've lost precisley 5% of your air. :BigGrin:

    They normally come with a 2 year guarantee But with you Mo, I'm happy to give you an exclusive lifetime guarantee:thumb::Rofl1:
