Tyre pressure

Check the pressure of each tyre, including the spare, every two weeks and before long journeys.

The pressure must be checked when the tyre is rested and cold.

It is normal for the pressure to rise when you are driving. If you have to check or restore the pressure when the tyres are warm, remember that the pressure value must be 0.3 bar above the specified value.

See Wheels in Technical specifications for the correct tyre inflation pressure.

Incorrect pressure causes abnormal tyre wear fig. 22: Tyre pressure must be correct to ensure good road holding.
