Tyre Advice from Tyre Express
How can the correct tyre pressure be found?All pressures for tyres are advised by the vehicle manufacturer rather than the tyre manufacturer. The pressures in tyres act as part of the vehicles suspension design therefore contributing to handling, stability, ride etc. Contrary to popular belief pressures are not only advised based on the weight of the vehicle. You should find advised pressures for your tyres in your owner’s handbook or give us a call we are happy to offer advise.
How much should the pressure in rear tyres be increased when towing a caravan?The correct inflation pressure for car tyres will be found in the vehicle handbook. In the absence of special towing information the rear tyres should be set at the “fully laden” tyre pressure. Where there is no full load pressure shown the rear tyre pressure should be increased by 4 to 7psi.
