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.

What people are saying about us...

  • Staff were exceptional. I have never been a customer before, but I have called and enquired by phone about a number of things and the advise has always been surprising and the return calls as well sometimes unexpected and informative with good recommendations. I decided to use F1 Autocentres this time as my car was new and this was the first opportunity I had for needing new tyres.

  • The manager ensured that the car was booked in earlier than expected as I had urgent business to attend to and it was ready again after a few hours. Excellent service.
