Should Pump Your Tyres

If you’re not sure what your car’s tyre pressure should be, or how to check the tyre pressure then refer to your car’s manual. The information may also be marked on the driver’s door pillar, or on the inside of the petrol flap. In most cases, two different sets of pressures are given; one for normal driving conditions and the other for a loaded vehicle with extra people or heavy items on board. Driving with incorrect tyre pressures can affect the vehicle’s handling, and can seriously compromise safety or lead to accidents. You need pump your tyres if the pressure is too low.

To check your tyre inflation pressure you will need a tyre pressure gauge or use the gauge on the inflation equipment found at most wheel and tyre fitment centres and petrol stations. Low tyre pressure can affect your vehicle’s endurance, road holding and your braking system. Having the correct tyre pressure on your vehicle is one of the easiest and most important things you can do for your car. The economic and safety benefits are huge.

When you have the correct pressure your tyre wears longer and is not required to be changed as often. You save on fuel as your car is moving efficiently and fewer accidents will occur. If you consider that your tyres are the only part of the car that’s in constant contact with the road, you tend to realise how important they are to your safety and its role in efficient handling. For this reason it is essential to check the tyre pressure.
