Taxi speed should be closely monitored. Normal taxi speed is approximately 20 knots, adjusted for conditions. On long straight taxi routes, speeds up to 30 knots are acceptable, however at speeds greater than 20 knots use caution when using the nose wheel steering wheel to avoid over controlling the nose wheels. When approaching a turn, speed should be slowed to an appropriate speed for conditions. On a dry surface, use approximately 10 knots for turn angles greater than those typically required for high-speed runway turnoffs.

High taxi speed combined with heavy gross weight and a long taxi distance can result in tire sidewall overheating.
