What if my car tyre pressure is incorrect?

It might seem like an obvious move but if your car tyre pressure is incorrect then you’re going to need to increase or decrease the amount of air within your tyres until they reach the correct number.

Once you’ve finished inflating/deflating the tyres and checking the pressure double check that there is no dirt in the valve, when you know it’s clean you’re good to screw the dust cap back on.

Whether you pump your tyres up at home or visit the nearest petrol station and pump them up there great. Once the tyres have been inflated with more/enough air and have the correct tyre pressure you’ll be set for a safer drive with longer lasting tyres.
