How important is the correct inflation pressure?

The weight of a vehicle is not borne solely by the tires, the air in them also plays an important part. The safety risk increases with every journey if the inflation pressure is too low:

  • The braking distance is unnecessarily long.
  • There is an increased risk of tire damage caused by excessive heat generation.
  • Fuel consumption rises on account of the greater rolling resistance.

Our advice:

Check the inflation pressure on every second refueling stop. Or come straight to us and we will do it for you.

What is the right way to clean tires?

Do you tend to use a high-pressure cleaner on your car? If so, it is important to take particular care when cleaning the tires. A concentrated jet of hot water from close range can cause considerable damage, as the pressure on impact causes the temperature of the tire material to increase and small blisters to form in the rubber, thus weakening it. Possible consequences: Sudden bursting of tires under heavy load or at high speed.

Tire cleaningPoints to watch when cleaning tires:

  • Maintain a distance of at least 20 cm between the end of the gun and the tire.
  • Use a wide-spread rather than a concentrated jet.
  • Even in the event of stubborn dirt, never direct the jet at a single point but rather move it constantly back and forth.
