Tyre Safety Month, which takes place in October annually, reminds motorists that correct tyre pressure is not only vital for safety but is also the best way to maximise fuel economy.
According to expert opinion, not only do under inflated tyres reduce the ability to grip the road but it it also has a detrimental effect on the handling of the car. Likewise, over-inflated tyres can also result in unpredictable vehicle behavior while increasing the chances of a tyre blow out, increased stopping distances, reduced grip and more wear across the central part of the tyre which decreases lifespan.
To reduce the risk, drivers are encouraged to check their tyre pressure at least once a month and before longer journeys to ensure that your tyres are optimally inflated.
