You'll find the recommended pressures inside the drivers' manual. Check the pressure when the tyre is cold, as even a short journey will warm up tyres and raise the pressure.
Under-inflation can cause tyre damage, uneven wear, and an increase in fuel consumption.
Over inflated tyres give a less comfortable ride and wear out in the centre of the tread.
Check the pressure in the spare tyre to ensure it's ready in an emergency.
Check Your Tread
Worn tyres means less grip.
Abnormal or uneven wear can often be an indication of a mechanical defect on the vehicle. In these circumstances the mechanical parts (steering, wheel alignment, brakes) should be checked immediately.
Check for Damage
Look for cuts, cracks and bulges or any other evidence of damage from violent impact or kerbing. Damaged tyres may be illegal and can be dangerous.

Suspect a Puncture?
Damage caused by driving over a pothole, kerbing or small, sharp foreign objects, all contribute to a slow puncture. If you suspect you may have a puncture, let our tyre specialists assess it for you.
