The correct pressure is important both for safety and for a long tyre life. They must be checked when the tyre is cold (By cold we mean the ambient outside temperature where the tyre is to be used). Tyre pressures must be checked regularly, about once every two weeks.
A drop in pressure can be caused by:
- the natural leakage of air through the walls of a tyre,
- drops in ambient temperature,
- small perforations that, in a tubeless tyre, may not lead to immediate deflation but rather deflation over time, (a slow leak!). This in turn can lead to irreversible damage due to the tyre running in an under inflated condition.
We offer an optional service of Nitrogen filling. Nitorgen is a normal part of the atmosphere but has benefits when a tyre is completely filled with it. The tyre can retain its pressure 3 to 5 times longer than when a tyre is filled with air.
Please call us to enquire about Nitrogen filling.
