Tyre Pressures

Why check your tyre pressure?

As a result of rubber's natural permeability, your tyres could be losing air pressure at a rate of up to two pounds each month (often more in warmer weather conditions).

For this reason, Formula One Autocentres recommend that you check your tyres as regularly as possible - ideally every couple of weeks.


The benefits of correctly inflated tyres

Safety - having the correct tyre pressure enhances the safety of your vehicle, improving not only its ability to hold the road, but also its braking efficiency. Under-inflated tyres are prone to overheat, whilst over-inflation can seriously affect the road handling of your vehicle.

Economy - correct tyre pressure helps prolong the life of your tyres, which saves you money. Under-inflated tyres also have increased rolling resistance, raising the amount of fuel required to maintain a steady speed.

Environment - maintaining the correct tyre pressure is helpful to the environment too. By reducing fuel consumption, you'll also be doing your bit to help our planet by reducing your vehicle's CO2 emissions.
