A guide to Jaguar cars and their correct tyre pressures

Many drivers are not aware of the dangers involved in driving with under-inflated tyres. Worn tyres with low pressures are potentially fatal as they make it much more difficult to maintain control of your vehicle. If you skid, you lose total control, and present a serious risk to your safety.

Indeed, even more drivers are unaware of the financial problems of driving with tyres with too low pressures. They are economically difficult for two reasons.

Firstly, an under-inflated tyre is more likely to overheat, because fractionally more of its surface is in direct contact with the surface of the road. This can lead to wearing of the tyre, meaning you will need to replace your tyres more often.

Secondly, and in relation to the first point, because of this extra work involved, under-inflated tyres actually reduce the efficiency of your car in terms of fuel use, meaning you could be wasting more money. Correctly inflated tyres help the environment and your personal economy.

Thankfully, it is easy for owners of Jaguar cars to ascertain tyre pressures appropriate for their vehicles. The correct pressures for your model are listed, in all new Jaguar cars, on a small label attached to the end of the door to the left side of the driver.

If for whatever reason your Jaguar car does not possess this label, it is easy to check the suitable tyre pressures for your automobile online. Visit the website Tyre-Pressures.com and enter your car registration number to find the right pressures, or search by your car type.

Once you know the correct numbers, you must keep checking your tyres regularly. For owners of all types of automobile including Jaguar cars, tyre pressures should be checked monthly, or before any long distance journey.
