- Check your tyre pressures at least once a month or before any long journeys
- Check the pressures against the vehicle manufacturers recommended level for the load being carried. This can be found in the vehicle handbook, inside the fuel filler cap or on a plate located on the driver’s door sill
- Check pressures when your tyres are cold (i.e. when you’ve travelled less than two miles)
- Ensure a reliable and accurate pressure gauge is used
- Check pressures in all four tyres and don’t forget the spare if your vehicle has one
- When checking pressures, give the rest of the tyre a thorough visual inspection. Remove any stones and other objects embedded in the tread and look out for any lumps, cuts or bulges in the tyre.
- If you are unsure on any aspect, visit your nearest tyre fitting centre and seek expert advice.
