Ensuring you keep the recommended level of air pressure in your tyres will extend their life and give you optimal handling, braking and fuel economy. That's why checking your pressures on a regular basis is a good habit to get into.
All tyres will lose air, typically at a rate of around 0.069 bar or 1 pound per square inch (psi) each month. This can happen even faster if you do lots of long-distance driving, or drive on uneven road surfaces and with heavy loads, while air loss also increases in warmer temperatures. We suggest you check your tyre pressures every month, and examine your treads at the same time. You'll find the correct pressure in your car owner’s manual as well as on the sidewall of every tyre.
How to check your pressure
If you notice an excessive or unusual drop in pressure it may indicate a leak, and you should consult a professional.
