Routine tyre pressure checks are instrumental in enjoying continued driving comfort, extended tyre life and handling safety. Our experts recommend inflating or deflating tyres according to the manufacturer recommendations every 14 days, once a month or before any long journey. This not only helps extend the tyre service life but also improves your vehicle’s fuel efficiency this in turn equates to lower CO2 emissions from your vehicle and helping to protect the environment. If possible, pressures should be checked when the tyres are cold. If the tyres are hot 4 to 5 psi (0.3 bar) must be added to the recommended pressures.
