Manual Checks

While the benefits of TPMS are widely recognised, it is important that they are not seen as a replacement for regular manual tyre safety checks.

The driver is always responsible for the condition of the tyres on their vehicle and while TPMS makes life easier regular visual checks are essential to stay tyre safe. Pressures should be tested at least once a month or before any long journey when the tyres are cold using an accurate and reliable pressure gauge.

When checking pressures, it is advisable to also give the tyre a thorough visual inspection as well as ensuring the tread is not excessively or unevenly worn.
