Tyre Care

Importance of Tyre Pressure

Optimum air pressure should be maintained to ensure safety, driving performance, tyre life and fuel cost.

Tyres have been known to lose up to one pound per square inch (psi) every month. It is important to check all tyres, even the spare, at least once a month or before a long trip.

Recommended Interval

Tyre pressure should be inspected monthly.

Hankook recommends that you check your tyre pressure once each month.

The optimum air pressure level for your tyre can be found on the inner side of the car door, inside the fuel cap or in the car manual (the location of the sticker can vary according to country).

The number on the tyres sidewall represents maximum air pressure for that specific tyre, therefore do not use this figure as a basis for comparison.

How to Check Tyre Pressure

Purchase a certified air pressure gauge or take your vehicle to a nearby service centre or fuel station for a check-up.

Tyres must be checked in a “cold” state (at least three hours after driving).

Insert the gauge into the valve.

Compare the measured air pressure level with the level listed on the car door.

If the measured figure is higher release air until the figure matches what is listed on the car door.

If the measured figure is lower insert more air until the figure matches what is listed on the car door.
