Central Tire Inflation Systems: The Basics of How the Systems Function and Installation/Operational Issues 942252
During the next decade Central Tire Inflation Systems will become available on more vehicles for improved ride and performance.
Currently the military and some on-off highway forestry logging operations use the systems to improve vehicle performance and reduce vehicle and road damage. Nearly all Russian military vehicles have CTI Systems.
