The are a number of pumps available for testing and inflating your tyres, some can be purchased and used at home such as those that require pumping a foot leaver, others are electrical based and use a compressor to generate air flow whilst larger machines are also available at most petrol and service stations.
In this example we’ll be using a standard single piston foot pump, which is available from most motor spares stores.
Remember to only check your tyres when they are cold, checking the pressures after a journey will give inaccurate results due to the heat in the tyres.
Step 1: Step One â Find out the correct pressure levels
Step 2: Step Two â Locate the valve
Step 3: Step Three â Attach the air pump
Step 4: Step Four â Check the pressure reading
Add air to the tyre as necessary to match the air pressure to the manufacturer’s recommendation.
