What tyre pressure is correct?

Tyres consistently lose pressure through natural causes, but pressure loss can also be accelerated by other air leaks related to accidental punctures, the valve, the valve cap, and the wheel.

Each tyre requires different pressure depending on the make, model, and usage of your car. We recommend having your tyre pressure checked and addressed by a tyre expert. We can then advise on how much pressure is correct for your car and complete this procedure.
