Your tires are the only point of contact between your vehicle and the road. That is why it’s extremely important to preserve the quality and performance of your tyres to ensure both your safety and your mobility.

CHECK YOUR TYRE PRESSURE

Correct tyre pressure reduces the risk of losing control of your vehicle. It also protects your tyres from premature wear and irreversible damage to the internal construction. Tyre pressure can drop due to small perforations, the natural escape of air , or even from a decrease in ambient temperatures. Check the pressure of your tyres, including your spare, regularly  and before any long journey, preferably when your tyres are cold (not having run for at least 2 hours or having run for less than 2 miles at low speed). If they are not checked in this cold condition, add 4 to 5 PSI (0.3 bar) to the recommended pressure, but never deflate a hot tyre.  It’s important to check the pressure once a month, because:

  • Under or over inflation can reduce the life of your tyres, affect their performance and increase the risk of damage.
  • Correct tyre pressure will even save fuel
