Tyres carry the weight of a vehicle and keep the rims off the road. However, did you know that the vehicle load is carried by the air pressure in the tyres – not the tyre carcass? This is is why if you don’t have correct tyre pressure, then you’ll end up with excessive deflection of the tyres’ sidewalls.

At best, this will distort the tyre contact patch and cause irregular tyre wear. At worst, the increased deflection will cause higher temperature build-up, resulting in component fatigue in the tyre carcass – potentially leading to tyre failure, which could be sudden and dangerous.

Due to the vital importance of having correct tyre pressure, at Jim’s we’re dedicated to offering some of the quickest and easiest tyre air filling in Melbourne, ensuring your car tyre pressure is always at its best. But if you feel comfortable doing your own tyre air filling Melbourne has plenty of options for this, starting with many petrol stations. Read on to make sure you inflate to the correct pressure for your tyres.

How much air should I put in my tyres?

Tyres must always be inflated to the pressure specified by the Vehicle Tyre Placard. It is recommended that you have tyre pressure checks regularly, such as every second or third time you fill up at the petrol station. Another good opportunity for tyre pressure checks is when they are rotated.

Keep in mind that if the vehicle is driven at sustained high speeds or with a heavy load, then the cold inflation pressure must be increased to compensate for the extra strain. The tyre pressures for both normal and high-speed/high-load usage are specified on the Vehicle Tyre Placard. Wondering how to check tyre pressure?
