Importance of Tyre Pressure

A common mistake made by vehicle owners is not regularly checking tyre pressures.  Ideally you should be checking the pressure of your tyres at least once a month.

Pressure should always be checked on cold tyres and with a reliable tyre pressure gauge.


Why is checking tyre pressure so important?


  • Safety (Incorrect pressure will affect braking and grip)
  • Tyre life (Incorrect pressure will increase wear)
  • Fuel Consumption (Under the correct pressure will increase your fuel consumption)


When checking your tyre pressure, it is always good to check the tread and condition.

You should get any cut assessed by a tyre specialist.  Any bulge indicates internal structure damage and the tyre must be replaced. Call a tyre specialist in Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford, Brighouse and surrounding areas on 07742 352 743
