Just a little knowledge – and a little extra care – can add up to better performance, money-saving mileage and added driving safety.
For a good tyre pressure reading, check tyres when they’re cold, after your vehicle has been idle for a few hours. You’ll find a sticker on the underside of the bonnet or edge of the driver’s door that tells the proper tyre inflation for your vehicle. Over-inflated tyres wear out more quickly in the tread center and under-inflated tyres wear out more quickly at the tread’s outer edge. This may lead to increased fuel consumption.
