Where do I find my correct tyre pressure?
You will find your tyre’s correct pressure (measured in PSI or BAR pressure) in your manufacturer’s handbook. You should also find a sticker on the inside of the driver’s door. If neither are obvious, you can enter your car’s registration plate into an online search tool.
We recommend you check your tyre pressures every two weeks and before and after any long journeys. Some cars have a dashboard warning light which will notify you when your tyre pressures drop.
How do I check my tyre pressure?
It’s best to check your tyre pressures when your tyres are cold – either first thing in the morning or when the car has been stationary for at least two hours. However, if your tyre pressure warning light has come on, or you’ve noticed your tyre is low, it is more important to attend to it straight away.
You can buy gauges and pumps to use at home, or you’ll find high quality air gauges/pumps in nearly all petrol stations.
