Tire pressure in winter
A flat tire can be dangerous to drive no matter what the weather.
A common driving myth is that flat tires give you better grip in the snow – but this is not true.
Properly inflated tires will grip the road better, prevent skidding and help you brake in time.
During the colder months, tires can depressurize much faster.
You can find the exact pressure your tires will be inflated to in your owner’s manual or the driver’s side door.
Don’t forget to check the tread – it needs to be at least 1.6mm deep over three-quarters of the tire’s width and experts recommend a safe level of 3mm.
Owning bald tires can land you a fine of £2,500 each – that’s £10,000 if all four tires fail to meet the regulations.
The RAC recommends checking your tires at least once a week during the winter.
