How do I know if my tires need inflating or deflating?

Published 13 July 2016 in

The only accurate way to know if your tires need to be inflated (or deflated) is by measuring the pressure with a reliable and accurate tire pressure gauge.

A common misconception is that a visual check is sufficient to assess tire pressure. Tires can be significantly under or over-inflated by up to 20% and you may not be able to tell just by looking at them.

By using an accurate and reliable tire pressure gauge you need to check the tire pressure matches with the vehicles manufactures’ recommendations.
