Despite knowing that driving on incorrectly inflated tyres can mean burning more fuel, shortening the life of the tyres and damaging the environment, many of us still put it off.
But many of our customers admit to our tyres fitters they don’t know what to do.
So, here’s our simple guide to checking your tyres pressure.
1. First check your vehicle handbook to find out what the recommended pressure is for your vehicle.
2. Unscrew the tyre valve cap – these are usually place and twist off by hand.
3. Insert the gauge into the valve and check the pressure on the gauge display. If it’s above or below the recommended pressure, it needs adjusting.
4. Use an electric tyre pump to fill to the correct level. These can be found at most petrol stations.
You see, it’s that simple, but it can save you money and reduce CO2 emissions!
