Tyre pressure affects your car’s handling, turning, braking and fuel efficiency – all of which you need to be able to rely on. What’s more, a tyre at the wrong pressure will wear out faster and might put your safety at risk.
Check tyre pressures regularly
Your tyres lose pressure all the time.
Even in ideal conditions they lose around 0.069 bar or one pound per square inch (psi) each month – and this figure rises as the temperature goes up.
So, you should check your tyre pressure at least once a month (and while you’re at it, have a good look at your treads).
If you don’t know what the recommended pressure is, you can find it in your owner’s manual or on the sidewall of your tyre.
