Are you looking for Tyre Pressure Check for your vehicle?

tyre-pressure

Experts recommend to check your car’s tyre pressure at least once a month or at least every 2 weeks. Your car tyres should be properly inflated to the manufacturer recommended pressure. This significantly improves the lifespan of the tyres and contributes to your on-road safety.

You can bring your car to Kirkby Road Tyres for a free tyre pressure check Sutton-in-Ashfield. Our experts will quickly check the tyre pressure levels and adjust the pressure to the correct level in no time. We use advanced tyre pressure gauges for this purpose and refer to your car owner’s manual or tyre placard.

    Please note that you do not need any prior appointment for this check. Just come over to our garage at any time during our business hours.

    What are the effects of incorrect tyre inflation pressure?

  • Tread-wear: Under-inflated tyres have a higher rolling resistance, and thus, wear out much faster. This means you will need a tyre replacement much sooner.
  • Higher chances of a blowout: The sidewalls of underinflated tyres flex a lot, especially at high speeds, thereby generating increased friction and heat. This increases the risk of tyre failure and a blowout.
  • Decrease in handling and grip: Lower pressure reduces the vehicle’s handling and grip. It increases the braking distance and makes the steering unresponsive as well.
  • Over-inflation: Over-inflation can lead to rapid wearing in the centre of the tread. It also leads to a very uncomfortable driving experience and a significant drop in braking and handling performance.
  • How often should you check tyre pressure?

    As stated already, you should ideally opt for a free tyre pressure check Sutton-in-Ashfield on a monthly or bi-weekly basis. Tyres lose 1 to 2 PSI of pressure every month due to factors like temperature, unfavourable driving conditions and faulty tyres.

    At Kirkby Road Tyres, our experts will first check the tyre placard or owner’s manual to identify the correct tyre pressure for your vehicle. Next, they will inflate or deflate the tyres accordingly.
