CHECK YOUR TYRE PRESSURES

Why is it important to check your pressures regularly?

Correct tyre pressure is vital to your safety on the road. Under-inflated tyres affect handling and grip, potentially causing irregular or unpredictable vehicle behaviour. They are also much more likely to suffer from a dangerous blowout, especially on high-speed motorway journeys.

By keeping your tyres at their optimum pressure, your running costs are also reduced. Under-inflated tyres require a bigger force to make them turn, so your car uses more fuel. Additionally, tyres which are not set to their correct pressure wear out more quickly.

So, to benefit from lower fuel bills, longer tyre life, increased safety and reduced CO2 emissions, make sure you check your tyre pressures at least once a month and before a long journey.

TyreSafe makes every effort to provide accurate tyre size and pressure information. However, the accuracy of data cannot be guaranteed and users should consult their vehicle handbook for full approved settings. Also, pressure recommendations may not take account of any wheel and or tyre size changes. Please ensure your car’s tyre size matches the given data before inflating your tyres to the recommended pressures. If in any doubt, please ask your vehicle manufacturer or consult with a TyreSafe recommended tyre dealer.
