What are the risks of driving on inadequately inflated tyres?
Both under-inflated and over-inflated tyres are a threat to your safety and your car’s steering stability. In the following section, we have listed the risks associated with over- and under-inflated tyres respectively.
- Causes the sidewall and tread structure to stiffen up and hence affects handling and traction
- Over-inflated tyres lead to over-heating and increases the chances of a tyre blow-out
- It reduces the road-contact of a unit and hence impairs the gripping and braking performance.
- Tyres with low air pressure can impair your car’s cornering and steering precision
- Like over-inflated units, these units too increase heat build-up
- Under-inflated tyres cause severe tread wear and immensely affect tyre durability
Therefore, you must be very cautious and avail of a routine tyre pressure check Bridge of Don.
How can Laws Tyres help?
Ideally, a car tyre must have a tyre pressure of about 30 to 35 psi. Our experts will, however, duly refer to the “owner’s manual” or tyre placard which is kept in one of the following places:
- Vehicle manual’s sidewall,
- Fuel cap hatch,
- Inside the glove box door,
- Door jamb, etc.
This manual or placard will help us understand the accurate tyre pressure that is required for your vehicle to perform optimally.
We will then remove the tyre valve cap and use an advanced pressure gauge to take the reading. Following this, we will adequately re-inflate or deflate the unit as necessary.
Hence, look no further for “garages near me” to get your car’s tyre pressure checked and come to us during our business hours.
