Yeah they might not be as exciting as a shiny new exhaust or set of alloys but looking after your tyres could mean that you have the money to spend on the extras!
Having the correct tyre pressure can help to extend the life of your tyre, improve vehicle safety and maintain fuel efficiency which has got to be a good thing right!
The three main reasons why maintaining the right tyre pressure is important are:
- Safety. Tyres that are under inflated can overheat; and over inflated tyres can lead to poor vehicle handling on the road.
- Economy. Over or under inflated tyres suffer more damage than those with the correct pressure and need to be replaced more regularly. Vehicles with under-inflated tyres have increased rolling resistance that require more fuel to maintain the same speed.
- Environment. Correct tyre pressures help to maintain optimum fuel efficiency. This can equate to lower Co2 emissions coming from your vehicle than those with incorrect tyre pressures and that has to be good for the environment.
