The article presents the results of research on the influence of the pressure in car tires on the braking distance. Tires with lower than nominal pressure, higher than nominal pressure and for comparison with nominal pressure were analyzed. The tests were carried out on a bituminous surface typical for most road surfaces in Poland. Six tests were carried out on a dry surface, a wet surface, and a surface covered with snow. The cars were equipped with sets of summer and winter tires. The research on the influence of tire pressure on the braking distance was carried out with two practically identical cars with very similar curb weight The research on the influence of tire pressure on the braking distance was carried out with two practically identical cars with very similar curb weight. Both vehicles were equipped with an efficient ABS system. All measurement tests were performed at a speed of 50 km / h.
