How important is the correct inflation pressure?
The weight of a vehicle is not borne solely by the tyres, the air in them also plays an important part. The safety risk increases with every journey if the inflation pressure is too low:
- The braking distance is unnecessarily long.
- There is an increased risk of tyre damage caused by excessive heat generation.
- Fuel consumption rises on account of the greater rolling resistance.
Check the inflation pressure on every second refueling stop. Or come straight to us and we will do it for you.
When do tyres need changing?
There are three important factors to bear in mind: Age, tread depth and possible damage. Not to forget the minimum tread depth of 1.6 mm.
