Tire Pressure Recommendations iPhone App from TyreSafe
“Many drivers tell us that they don’t check their tire pressures because they are unsure of the correct settings,” stated Stuart Jackson, chairman, TyreSafe. “The new TyreSafe iPhone app completely removes this problem and instantly provides drivers with their car’s tire pressure information. So whether they’re on their driveway at home, the supermarket filling station or at the services on the motorway, iPhone users can be sure of having the correct information to hand.”
“Correct tire pressure is vital to road safety. Under-inflated tires are much more likely to suffer from a blowout, typically on motorways at high speeds, as excessive heat builds up within the tire causing it to fail catastrophically. Handling and grip are also affected, potentially causing irregular or unpredictable vehicle behaviour. Running costs also increase with under-inflated tires as they make the vehicle less fuel efficient and wear out much quicker,” TyreSafe states.
Correct tire pressures are essential for the drivers’ safety and should be checked at least once a month or before a long journey. They should be checked when the tires are cold using an accurate pressure gauge.
