Always check your tyre pressures at least once a week to ensure they are correct. Tyre pressures are often written on the inside of the fuel filler hatch for easy reference.
Under inflated tyres will reduce your grip in all weather conditions and reduce your fuel efficiency! They will also cause your tyres to wear unevenly and reduce their legal life span.
Under normal conditions, a tyre will always lose small amounts of air even when they are in good condition. However if you notice that air is being lost at a much higher rate, this could be an indication of a small puncture or perhaps a faulty valve, and should be investigated by a garage or tyre centre with a simple pressure check.
Note that the recommended tyre pressure is NOT written on the wall of the tyre - this is actually the MAXIMUM tyre pressure!
