Tyre Pressure?

Most vehicle owners are aware of tyre pressure surely. If not, it is just what the name suggests, the amount of air in the tyres. Tyre pressures are measured in PSI (pounds per square inch) units.

Though it seems a very insignificant detail it would be your biggest blunder to neglect its importance. Tyre pressure is responsible for the proper balancing of the wheels of your car or another automobile. So checking it from time to time is very important.

Ways to check the Tyre Pressure

Tyre pressure can be checked both at home or in the garages or service centres with the help of proper tools. There are many devices like the tyre pressure gauge, air compressor, etc. available in the market for checking the tyre pressure of vehicles. Some high-end vehicles have an automatic alert for low tyre pressure.

Though it is possible to check on your own, it is a strenuous job. Why will you waste your energy at it when you can check it on your way to work or a drive? Blackhurst Garages provides tyre pressure check services too along with other automobile servicing. So for any sort of tyre pressure check Whitchurch come to us.

Optimum PSI

Optimum tyre pressure level can be found written in the owner’s manual and also mentioned in the sticker pasted at the car’s door jamb. It usually is ranged between 30 and 35 PSI. This is the accurate tyre pressure level that allows the vehicle to operate in an economic way. Too much or too less air pressure in the tyres can cause trouble and lead to serious conditions.

To avoid taking any risk with your car’s tyre pressure, drive over to Blackhurst Garages first on your way out and get it set.

  • Cuts and punctures of the tyre
