Free Tyre Checks
As safety is a priority to us at Tucketts Tyrepower Hastings, we offer FREE tyre checks for all our customers. Our friendly staff, will be happy to check your vehicle's tyre condition, tread depth and pressure.
One of the critical factor in tyre performance is tyre pressure. Tyre pressure checks are as important as servicing your car regularly, many drivers neglect to check their tyre pressures, then wonder why the tyre does not perform to their expectations, or worse still, fails.
The money saving benefits are perhaps the biggest advantage.
Tyre pressure affects:
- Adhesion to road surface
- Ride comfort
- Fuel consumption
- Operating temperature
- Wear rate
- Overall tyre performance
Tucketts Tyrepower Hastings recommend that tyre pressure should be checked as a minimum once a month. For the most accurate reading, tyre pressures should be checked when the tyres are cold, that is, before the vehicle has been driven.
As a rule of thumb, the higher the tyre pressure the better the performance. But this comes at the cost of a harsher ride. This is because the higher the pressure inside the tyre, the less movement or flex in the tyres sidewalls.
So, if you want increased performance, increase the tyre pressure. If you want improved comfort, decrease the tyre pressure.
