Hazards of using over or under-inflated car tyres
- Under-inflated tyres speed up wear on the exterior sides of a tyre.
- Under-inflated tyres reduce fuel efficiency and affects braking performance.
- Over-inflated units cause rapid wear on the centre of a tyre, reducing traction.
- Over-inflated tyres increase the risk of a tyre blowout.
What is the right tyre air pressure?
Tyre pressure is measured in pressure per square inch (PSI) or BAR pressure. Recommended tyre pressure of a vehicle is determined by its manufacturer and varies from one model to another.
The information related to the right tyre pressure can be found in the vehicle handbook or on your car’s tyre placard (usually inside the glove compartment or in one of the car door jambs).
What do we do?
During a free tyre pressure check Luton, our technicians will first refer to the vehicle handbook/Placard or owner's manual to find out the right inflation level for your respective car segment.
Following this, they will remove the valve cap and attach the tyre pressure gauge to check the inflation level. If your car tyres do not have the required air pressure, our experts will inflate them adequately.
Alternatively, if the tyres are over-inflated, we will remove the cap to let some air pass out to achieve the correct air pressure level.
