Frequently asked questions

When are my tyres worn?

Peer into the bottom of the tread grooves of your tyre. Never let your tread wear down further than the tread wear indicators because your car's handling and roadholding will become unpredictable and unsafe.

How do I check the pressure of my tyres?

Try to use a digital tyre pressure gauge - they're not expensive but they are more accurate than the gauge on most garage forecourts. It's important to check the pressures when your tyres are cold, so wait for about an hour from when you last drove on them.

What happens when my tyre pressure is too low?

When your tyre pressure is too low, you do not only risk driving more unstable. A reduced tyre pressure of 25% results in 10% more rolling resistance. This will ultimately increase your fuel usage by approximately 2%. Besides using more fuel, the outer sides of your tyres will wear down faster and this will decrease your driving pleasure.

What happens when my tyre pressure is too high?

When your tyre pressure is too high, the inner side of your tyres will wear down faster and the handling of your car will decrease, along with your driving pleasure.
