No-one is yet to replicate the Unimog in this domain: setting the right tyre pressure for the task at hand is conveniently carried out at the push of a button on the display. The driver has the choice between the three pre-configured modes "Road", "Sand", "Rough" and "Manual". The tyre pressure is then automatically adjusted. Thus, the Unimog can be driven with low tyre pressure on loose ground such as sand or mud and hence has a greater tyre contact area. That leads to better traction and less slipping. Or economical and safe driving on-road thanks to a high tyre pressure and smaller tyre contact area.
The TireControl plus central tyre inflation system is available ex factory and no special conversions are necessary.
