Tyre pressure guide

Last updated 01/06/2020

Checking your tyre pressure regularly can help keep you safe on the road. It’s important to ensure your car’s tyres are inflated to their recommended pressure levels as it not only extends the life of your tyres but can also maintain maximum fuel efficiency and therefore reduce your car’s environmental impact.

Understanding tyre pressure

Tyre pressure isn’t determined by the type of tyre or even its size but rather by the vehicle’s load and driving speed. To find out what your tyre’s pressure should be, check the manufacturer’s tyre placard, which is usually found inside the driver’s doorsill, in the glove box, under the fuel filter cap or under the bonnet.

Tyre pressure has a direct effect on a wheel’s ability to grip the road; so regular checking is vital for the safety of your car and your passengers.

Checking your tyre pressure

Tyre pressure should be checked when your tyre is cold as pressure increases as the tyre becomes hot. We recommend you check your tyre pressure every month and before any long drives (and don’t forget to check your spare tyre). If you notice some unusual pressure loss, then it’s a good idea to check the internal and external condition of your tyre, as well as the wheel itself and the valve.

Impact on the environment

Under-inflated tyres can create more rolling resistance and therefore increase fuel consumption. By keeping your tyres inflated to the proper levels you can maximise your car’s fuel economy and reduce its impact on the environment.
