Continental Tire pressure

Keeping up the pressure on your tires...

Most tire damage is caused by incorrect tire pressure!

Check your tire pressure regularly every two weeks in normal use.

Remember to check the spare wheel too.

The tire pressure prescribed by the manufacturer is given in the car manual & also in the tank lid, for example, or on the door post.

Incorrect tire pressure increases wear & has a negative effect on driving characteristics.

When checking & adjusting tire pressure, the following should be borne in mind:

  • Check the pressure when the tire is cold
  • Do not adjust the tire pressure on a warm tire (it is normal for the tire pressure to rise when the vehicle is moving).
  • The tire pressure must be the same on the wheels of each axle, but may be different on the front & rear axle.
  • Valve caps must be tightly closed as they protect the valve from dust & dirt & thus prevent it from leaking.
  • Replace missing valve caps without delay.
