Correct Tyre pressure for your car

The easiest way to find out the correct tyre pressure on a newer car is to look at the tyre placard on the inside of the drivers door. It will have the recommended PSI (Pounds per square inch) for both the front tyres and the rears.



If there is no placard on your car, you will be able to find the information in your Owners Manual.


Every Service Station has a pump you can use to check your tyre pressure and inflate your tyres if necessary.


Tyre Pressures should be checked every 4-6 weeks.

Underinflated tyres can:

1) Affect Braking Performance and vehicle handling.

2) Create uneven treadwear - The edges of the tyre wears out faster.

3) Increase Fuel Consumption.

Overinflated tyres can:

1) Affect Braking Performance and Vehicle handling.

2) Create Uneven treadwear - The centre of the tyre wears out faster.

3) Have a smaller contact area with the road.
