Air is free (for now) at all service stations and it is a great idea to check your tyre pressures often.

How do you know what tyre pressure is right for you?

For most vehicles, the manufacturer will advise of the correct pressure to set your tyres too.  Information on this is often located on the sticker in your door jam or in your service book.  If you have changed your vehicle set up and tyres its a good idea to ask your mechanic or tyre shop what pressure they recommend. If you are ever unsure of how to check your tyre pressure ask your mechanic to show you how.
