Driving with incorrectly inflated tyres is risky and a primary reason that shortens a tyre's lifespan. Using under-inflated tyres will overheat them, causing rapid and premature tyre wear. Furthermore, the chances are that they may suddenly blow out, leaving you stranded in the middle of nowhere. A sudden puncture may also lead to a complete loss of control, immensely compromising your on-road driving safety.

Car tyres have a pressure of approximately 30-35 psi regardless of the type of car you drive. However, due to several natural phenomena, they tend to deflate. Keeping your car tyres properly inflated allows you to enjoy your vehicle's driving performance to the fullest. Therefore, it is crucial to opt for a routine tyre pressure check Manchester at least once a month.
Most modern-day cars come with a tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS). This has made detecting incorrect tyre pressure more convenient and easier. When the tyre pressure is incorrect, you will notice the TPMS warning light on your vehicle's dashboard starts blinking. Address this warning at its earliest by visiting a reputed garage like ours.
Here are some of the common causes of incorrect tyre pressure-
Though TPMS indicates inaccuracy in tyre pressure, car owners must not rely on TPMS alone. One must remember that this is an electronic device that may fail to detect a wrongly inflated tyre with the effects of time. Moreover, TPMS indicators cannot detect an overinflated tyre which too is hazardous. You can look out for these signs of over or under-inflated vehicle tyres:
Incorrect tyre pressure will lead to excessive overheating and cause premature tread wear along its edges and sidewalls. An increase in friction due to a larger contact area also causes rapid wear. On the other hand, over-inflation will rapidly wear out tyres in the middle. Both cases will lead you to a costly tyre replacement Manchester.
Due to a larger contact patch in under-inflated tyres, rolling resistance tends to rise significantly, overburdening your vehicle's engine in order to keep your vehicle moving. This leads to increased fuel consumption. To get this addressed, come down to Manchester Breakdown Services Limited today.
Under-inflated tyre pressure will bring a drop in the vehicle's cornering and braking performance. On the other hand, over-inflated tyres cause poor tyre-to-road grip, which raises the chances of a possible skid or even aquaplaning. Overinflated tyres also increase your vehicle's braking distance.
