Summer safety – check your tyres

Making sure your tyres are correctly inflated helps save on fuel, makes tyres last longer, and will help keep your family safer on the road this summer season.

EECA’s Energywise website has an online tyre pressure tool. Just enter your registration plate number and it will show you the recommended tyre pressure for your car.

Investing in quality tyres is also important. The difference between a good tyre and a low-end one can be as much as 18 metres braking distance in the wet. Energywise also has an online tool to help you find Energywise approved tyres for you vehicle, or you can simply ask your mechanic or tyre shop for Energywise approved tyres.
