pneus view the maintenance of your tyres
Tyre pressure is inseparable from your safety. That’s why you should check your tyre pressure regularly. In addition, properly maintaining your tyres will prolong their life.
Why is tyre pressure important?
Ensure that air pressure is always optimal – whether for your safety, to improve road performance and mileage, or to reduce your fuel costs. Tyres can lose up to 1 psi (pounds per square inch) per month. You should therefore check the air pressure in all your tyres (including the spare) at least once a month, and before any long journeys.
Recommended check intervals
Tyre pressure should be checked once a month.
Useful information on tyre maintenance
Tyre wear has a direct impact on driver safety and vehicle performance. Every driver should therefore be able to check the wear and tear of their tyres.
Why is it important to check tyre wear regularly?
The deeper the tread pattern on the surface of the tyre, the better the grip of the tyre. Checking tyre wear regularly reduces the risk of accidents.
Recommended inspection intervals
Tyres.co.uk recommends checking tyre wear once a month. In addition, you should also check your tyres after every long drive.
Checking wear with a tread depth gauge
You can use a tread depth gauge or a wear indicator on your tyres to determine tread wear. For optimum safety and road performance, tyres should be replaced immediately if the tread depth is less than 2 mm or 3 mm. If you find that your tyres have worn out, it is time to buy new tyres.
