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.

  • For several weeks I wanted to buy branded tires for my car. Although it is a popular size 205 55 R16, the offer of tires is not so competitive. In F1 I found the best offer, where I additionally got an online discount with a discount code, which allowed me to save over 10f compared to the second cheapest website. This is not a big saving but it is always something. Although it is already spring, I was able to receive 10 free winter car spots, which have an impact on travel comfort and safety! Battery, fluid levels (the windscreen washer fluid was refilled for free) and the condition of the brakes etc. The employees were very polite. The receptionist went with me to the car so that I could show him which tires he wants to change, he advised which one would be better to leave. The employees were also polite, they performed the whole service very efficiently. New tires hold great on the road. On the e-mail I received an invoice with a tire replacement and vehicle inspection report. I received a visit to this website very positively, I have MOT test in a few months, I will go back to F1 again. Thank you
