Freelander 2 Tyre Pressure

Making sure that your tyre pressure is correct is very important and will make a big difference to the overall handling, safety and fuel efficiency of your car.

Incorrect tyre pressure will also affect the wear of your tyres, which will cost you more in the long run along with increased fuel consumption costs, so it’s worth checking your tyres on a regular basis.

If your tyres are under inflated, then they will have uneven contact with the road surface and will suffer excessive wear in the inner and outer edges. Low tyre pressure will also cause increased rolling resistance on the road which will result in higher fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

Over inflated tyres will mean that a smaller tyre area is in contact with the road surface which will also cause irregular wear to the tyre and can cause loss of road traction and longer braking distances.

Tyre pressure should always be checked when the tyres are cold so if you don’t have the equipment to check them at home without the need to move your car then it is recommended to check them at your nearest petrol station at the start of your trip before the tyres have had the chance to get warm. Or after a shopping trip when the tyres have had a chance to cool back down again.

Tyres can lose up to 2psi per month and this increases in warm weather so they will need to be checked more frequently when weather temperatures rise.

The required tyre pressure for your vehicle can be found on the driver’s door sill of your car or in your vehicle’s handbook.
