Tyre Pressure Monitoring Benefits
1. Enhanced safety 2. Improved performance 3. Fuel efficiency 4. Extended tyre lifespan
Congratulations on your new vehicle from CMH Nissan Hillcrest! Amid the excitement of receiving your prized possession, crucial details from the vehicle handover might slip your mind. One such vital aspect is the correct tyre pressure for your new vehicle. There is no need to worry because we will guide you through the process and emphasise its significance.
How To Check Tyre Pressure
Knowing the appropriate tyre pressure is essential to your car’s optimal performance, safety, and longevity. You can locate this information in your owner’s manual or on the sill/panel of the driver’s door to confirm that the tyres on your vehicle align with the specified size.
How Often to Check Tyre Pressure
It’s important to regularly check your vehicle’s tyre pressure every 2-3 weeks, even if you don’t use it often. This habit can help maintain optimal tire performance. Timing matters – check the pressure when your tyres are still cold. Avoid driving before performing the test, as warm tyres can provide inaccurate readings.
Benefits of Maintaining the Correct Pressure
Why monitoring the pressure such a big deal? Let’s delve into the advantages it brings:
1. Enhanced Safety: Adequate pressure ensures optimal traction, reducing the risk of accidents and skidding, especially in challenging road conditions. 2. Improved Performance: The right pressure enhances your vehicle’s handling, steering, and overall performance, contributing to a smoother ride. 3. Fuel Efficiency: Properly inflated tyres lead to better fuel economy, saving you money at the pump and reducing your carbon footprint. 4. Extended Tyre Lifespan: Maintaining the correct pressure evenly distributes wear across your tyres, preventing premature tread wear and significantly extending their lifespan.
Beware of Over-Inflation
While maintaining the correct pressure is crucial, beware of over-inflating your tyres. Over-inflated tyres wear out faster at the centre, compromising safety and reducing a tyre’s lifespan.
As you embark on your journeys with your new vehicle from CMH Nissan Hillcrest, remember that the air pressure in your tyres plays a pivotal role in supporting the entire vehicle’s weight. The importance of regularly monitoring and maintaining tyre pressure is essential as it safeguards your safety, optimises performance, and ensures long-lasting tyres.
