Air pressure in a tyre can strongly influence the tyre life, performance of the vehicle and safety of passengers. Tyres that overinflate can reduce the ability to absorb road shocks and as a result the centre of the tyre can experience excessive wear. Underinflated tyres create more rolling resistance, which can have a negative impact on your vehicle’s fuel efficiency.
- Tyre pressure checklist
- Tyre pressures should be checked on a weekly basis
- Pressure should be checked when tyre is cold
- Valves should be checked regularly
- Sealing type valves should be used
