Pressure: Check your tyre pressure every four weeks when the tyres are cold. Keep your summer and winter tyre pressure 0.2 bar higher than the manufacturer’s recommendation. Don’t forget to check the spare tyre (its pressure should be 0.5 bar higher). Ensure that the valves all have caps on to prevent dust and dirt from getting in, which can cause leaks.
Damage: Careless driving over sharp surfaces can damage the tyres. If you notice this kind of damage, always have your tyres removed for checking and replaced if necessary.
Overloading: Your tyres are designed to carry the vehicle’s maximum admissible weight. Extreme loads over and above the maximum weight can cause damage.
