Cold weather tyre pressure: Why you must check your car this winter

Your tyres feel the cold as much as you do, and when the temperature drops they can lose pressure. During the winter you should be checking your tyres more often. Ensuring your car’s tyres are properly inflated over the winter months gives your car better traction on icy or wet roads.

Cold weather affects your tyre pressure, so at this time of year you should be checking your tyre pressure regularly.

Even if you have a tyre pressure monitoring system, you should still check your tyres.

Keeping your tyres at the correct tyre pressure can also help your fuel economy, making sure you get the full mileage from each litre of fuel.
