When Should Tyre Pressure Be Checked?
It’s important to check your tyre pressure regularly, because tyres lose pressure all the time.
Even in ideal conditions they lose about 0.069 bar or 1 pound per square inch (psi) per month – and that’s a figure that rises with the temperature.
It is recommended to check your tyre pressure at least once a month, studying the tyre for signs of:
- Uneven tread wear
- Low pressure
- Condition of sidewalls (no missing chunks)
- Any objects lodged into the tread
If you don’t know what the recommended pressure is, you can find it in your owner’s manual.
