Tyre Inflation..  

Recommended tyre inflation pressures for your vehicle can be found in the vehicle handbook and/or on a placard mounted on the vehicle. In the absence of either of these consult the tyre manufacturer.

Correct pressures are related to loads, speeds and vehicle handling and are vital for maximum safety, braking, grip and good tyre life

Prolonged under-inflation causes excessive flexing, deterioration of the casing and rapid wear of the tread shoulders.

The vehicle will also consume more fuel.

Over-inflation results in an uncomfortable ride, a reduced area of contact with the road, accelerated wear on the tread centre and makes the tyre more susceptible to impact damage. Inflation pressure should be checked at least every two weeks and only when the tyre is cold, since there is an increase in pressure when the tyre has warmed up after being run.

A reliable and accurate pressure gauge should be used.

INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE

Examine your tyres regularly, removing stones and other objects embedded in the tread. If the tyre has lumps or bulges it must be examined by a tyre specialist since these could indicate internal damage. Wipe away oil or grease with a suitable diluted detergent.

Correctly inflated tyres will give you:-

Better Fuel Economy,

Better Traction,

Better Tyre Mileage

 Extra Safety!
