The air pressure within a vehicle’s tyres has a major impact on the overall performance of the car. Therefore, to ensure driving safety, fuel efficiency, standard load-carrying capacity and reduced tread wear, a regular tyre pressure check Fareham at a professional garage is mandatory.
Tyre air pressure is calculated in either pressure per square inch (PSI) or BARs. To run optimally on the road, tyre pressure must adhere to the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended levels.
Most modern vehicles now come equipped with a TPMS or Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, a built-in monitoring system that checks tyre pressure and alerts the driver in real-time in case of any significant change.
However, if your car doesn’t have TPMS, you need to be far more vigilant. You can rely on Turnpike Tyres as well. We offer a comprehensive free tyre check at our garage.
As per the UK laws, enforced on 1st January 2015, vehicles with inoperative or faulty TPMS are subjected to MOT failure.
Correct tyre pressure is important as it,
Increases fuel economy.
Reduces the risk of a tyre blowout.
Lessens tyre wear.
TPMS works via sensors which can be either direct or indirect. These sensors notify the driver is case the pressure drops below 25%.
The sensors, valves and sensor batteries get damaged due to a number of factors. Under such circumstances, the system is likely to send incorrect pressure data which is not at all desirable.
While driving, if you notice the TPMS warning light flashing on your car dashboard, it may indicate incorrect pressure in one or more tyres.
At Turnpike Tyres, we are equipped with the most advanced tools necessary to provide a comprehensive tyre pressure check.
