What Are the Dangers of Under Inflated Car Tyres?

Driving on incorrectly inflated tyres can cause problems both in terms of vehicle performance and road safety.

Given that 60% of people do not know what the legal car tyre tread depth limit is, it comes as little surprise that most of us do not know what the correct tyre pressure is for our vehicles either. The vehicles manual is usually a good place to start to find the correct pressures although failing that any garage should also be able to provide you with this information. Ideally, all car tyres should be checked at least once a month and at the beginning of any long journey using a tyre pressure gauge. It is also worth remembering that there are usually 2 correct pressures; one for ‘normal’ driving and one for ‘loaded’ driving, which is usually when the vehicle is loaded with passengers or is carrying a particularly heavy load.
