Tyre Pressure Facts

Under-inflated, over-inflated, worn down or misaligned tyre can be extremely dangerous, particularly in hot summer weather. Here are some tips to maintain your tyres during the summer.

  • Correct pressure – 100% contact with the road
  • For every 10% a tyre is underinflated, its wear can increase by 10%
  • 3% more fuel used when pressure is 6psi below the recommended inflation
  • Driving with low pressure causes reduced vehicle control, 10% reduced tyre life and increase fuel costs
