Tyre safety organisation TyreSafe have found there is a significant increase in people who believe their tyres have slow punctures, however upon subsequent investigation, many of these instances of pressure loss are actually the result of air escaping from cracked wheel rims that have been damaged by every driver’s arch enemy: potholes.
It’s essential that your car’s tyres are always properly inflated to the correct levels.
When tyres are run below their recommended pressures, they can overheat which will eventually lead to a rapid deflation, endangering the safety of the driver, their passengers and other road users.
Another important reason to keep your tyres pressure in check is the increased wear and higher fuel bills, adding unnecessary expense to your motoring costs.
By checking your tyre’s pressure at least once a week, drivers will be much more likely to spot any gradual loss of pressure and you can have this investigated by our qualified tyre professionals at Wheel Power.
