The recommended tyre pressure can usually be found on a sticker inside the driver’s door jamb or in the owner’s manual. It is crucial to maintain the correct tire pressure because:
- Safety: Properly inflated tyres ensure better traction, handling, and braking performance, reducing the risk of accidents.
- Fuel Efficiency: Underinflated tires create more rolling resistance, leading to decreased fuel efficiency.
- Tire Life: Overinflated or underinflated tyres wear out unevenly and more quickly, reducing their lifespan.
- Comfort: Correct tyre pressure contributes to a smoother and more comfortable ride.
