The importance of correct tyre pressure

Image showing how to check your tyre pressure

The correct tyre pressure is vital for both safety and for extending the life of your tyre.

You should check your tyre pressures monthly, including the spare and before any long distance driving. Make sure the tyre pressures match the pressures recommended by the vehicle manufacturer.

Tyre pressures should if possible be checked cold. If tyre pressures are checked hot, add 4 to 5 psi (0.3 bar) to the recommended pressures.

In the case of unusual pressure loss, the internal and external condition of the tyre should be checked, as well as the condition of the wheel and valve.

 

Get a grip on tyre pressures!


Maximum grip on the road is vital for road safety. This can only be achieved with the correct pressure in your tyres. The diagram below shows how much grip a tyre has on the road depending on its pressure.

Tyre pressures - top tips


1 - Safety


Under inflated tyres can not only overheat increasing the chances of it bursting, but also lead to poor handling of your vehicle. Low pressure on the front axle will increase under steer (fig. 1) whereas low pressure on the rear axle will increase over steer (fig. 2).

2 - Economy


Over inflated and under inflated tyres suffer more damage than those with the correct pressure and need to be changed more often. Even 60% inflation, which is not uncommon, can increase tyre wear and significantly shorten the life of the tyre. Vehicles with under inflated tyres have increased rolling resistance that requires more fuel to maintain the same speed.

3 - Environment


Correct tyre pressure helps to maintain optimum fuel efficiency. This equates to lower CO2 emissions from your vehicle and helps protect the environment.

JOHN THOMAS - January 2017

I always use Allright Tyre for my tyres John always makes you very welcome you leave with satisfaction in mind I would not hesitate in recondmending Allright Tyres to anyone asking me do I know a good tyre company. OOP's forgot to mention the tea and biscuit's Derek Johnson

Derek Johnson - June 2015

I arrived before official opening time of 7.30 am but the door was open and I was greeted with enthusiasm and respect. The job was started immediately (after I was given a cup of tea). Within 30min I was on my way to work with plenty of time to spare. Also the tyre price was competitive and I could order and arrange fitting online hassle free. The ability to order the tyre direct from the people fitting it rather than using 2 seperate companies was helpful.
