Why is correct tyre pressure important?

Published 13 July 2016 in

Correct tyre pressure is important for several reasons;

  • Tyre life – under or over inflated tyres increase wear
  • Fuel economy – under inflated tyres increase fuel consumption
  • Safety – under or over inflated tyres will affect grip and braking performance
  • Ride comfort – over inflated tyres can result in a harsh and uncomfortable ride
