Car Tyre Pressure: Everything You Need To Know

You are not simply done with your duty just buying tyres for your car. You also need to maintain them by ensuring that each of the tyres has correct level of pressure. Even the car tyres Brisbane manufacturers make need the pressure to be checked.

For checking the pressure, you do not need help of any professional. This can be done on your own with the help of a tyre pressure gauge.

First step is to find out the required pressures for the tyres which can be found in the handbook of your vehicle. You can also find the information inside the fuel cap or it might be stamped by the side of the driver’s door.

Usually, the vehicle manufacturer sets the pressure that is recommended for the tyres which means it varies from model to model. If you find it difficult to figure out the recommended pressure then you can use various tools that are exclusively meant for checking tyre pressure. Such tools ask for the vehicle registration number and you will get the details related to pressure recommendations. The recommended pressure changes with the different vehicle loads.

It is very important to keep the tyre pressure in sync with the pressure recommended which can increase the longevity of the tyres. Keep looking for indications of under inflated tyres because due to low air pressure, it becomes hard for the tyres to keep holding up the vehicle. With lack of air pressure, the sidewalls of the tyres degrade. The tyres may blowout if the internal temperature increases due to abnormal flexing.

Fuel efficiency also decreases if the tyres are under inflated. This happens due to too much pressure on the tyre tread which becomes more flat on the surface of the road. Under inflation also increases friction because of which more fuel is required for pushing the vehicle and also too much CO2 is emitted.
