Tyre-pressures

How often do you actually check them? My car was pulling a bit to the left; it had been like that for a couple of weeks. I finally got around to checking the pressures and they were all down, especially the left front running at 19 psi!

I didn`t check mine until I noticed one tyre was obviously low....pressure was 15 Embarassed I`d had it almost 5 months. I now have 38 in the fronts and 40 in the rears. Check every couple of weeks now. Or fill with nitrogen and check every 6 months. Steve.

Noticed my nearside front looked low, it was, down at 15. Thought I’d better get it checked out in case it was a slow puncture.................OH NOOOOOO, that would be the cheap option.....................only cracked an alloy!!! Mad

Evey time I walk to the car on the driveway, I give it a quick visual check. The last thing you want to do is to drive half a mile down the road to find out that you've knackered a perfectly good tyre that was flat when you set off. Plus if you see it's flat on your drive, you can change it there and then with access to your tools/jack/scruffy clothes.
I tend to check with a gague when it gets a wash which is every week or two. A good tyre on a good rim will lose very little air over the months.

Couple of times a month, usually just after a wash together with checking fluid levels.
Keep one of these [url]RACE X RX0014 Tyre Pressure Gauge https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B000VZ8S26/ref...GBJ8[/url] in the glovebox, great little gauge Thumbs Up

Every couple of weeks, reducing the consumption of tyres and fuel running up and down the A303 everyday. I use a pencil gauge and did have one of those Ring compressors but it seemed very fragile so just use the local Morrisons then adjust; although the Garage pump is not far off what the pencil gauge says.....

United Kingdom 2008 Range Rover Sport TDV8 HSE Zermatt Silver

Not often enough apparently. Checked them the other day to find OSR was low. Pumped it up but it went down over 4-5 days. So slow puncture! Took it to be fixed yesterday - "Sir, we've not repaired your tyre as its getting near the mark and you're going to need a new one soon".

So two new tyres to be fitted tomorrow. Big Cry

These Uniroyals have done 17,000 miles so not too bad. Robin
