Checking your Air Pressure

Use an accurate tyre pressure gauge at your local fuelling station to ensure that your air pressure is at the recommended settings. Details of the recommended tyre pressures for your vehicle can usually be found inside the fuel cap, in the driver's door sill or in the vehicle handbook. If you are unsure, please contact us.

Checking the Condition of your tyres

Lumps or bulges in a tyre may indicate internal damage and increase the risk of a catastrophic failure. If these, or cuts and cracks, are found while checking a tyre, the tyre may need replacing and professional advice should be sought. Contact us if you have any concerns.

Checking Tread Depth

Tread depth should be checked with an accurate gauge to ensure it is above the minimum legal limit of 1.6mm. If you don’t have an accurate tread depth gauge, a 20p can be used as a guide to how close your tread is to the limit if you don’t have a tread depth gauge available. Contact us if you have any concerns.

When Did you Last Do it?

Did you know that a recent research from TyreSafe found that 57% of tyres on UK roads are under-inflated?

Worn tyres could mean that your braking distance could increase by up to 70% on a wet road. The correct tyres, pressures and wear levels ensure that your vehicle performs properly in all conditions.

By ensuring your vehicle’s tyres are properly inflated, you can save on your fuel costs as well. Did you know that when tyres are under-inflated by just 20% (around 6psi), 3% more fuel is used. To put things into perspective, it is estimated that UK motorists could be wasting £600 million collectively on unnecessary fuel bills.
