Tyre Pressure

check your tyre pressureWhen did you last check your tyre pressure? Under or over inflated tyres can lead to uneven and faster tyre wear, greater fuel consumption and reduced stopping ability.

To find the correct tyre pressure for your vehicle, check the tyre pressure placard which is usually located on the driver’s door rim, glove box or under the bonnet.

Remember, the load your vehicle carries (including on whether you regularly tow) and the type of driving you do can also determine the correct tyre pressure for your vehicle. Not sure what the right tyre pressure is? Talk to your nearest Brakes+ Mechanical Service expert.

When inflating your tyres, it is best to do so while the tyres are cold – do not over inflate as the pressure builds as the tyre heats up during the course of driving.
