Maintaining your correct Tyre pressure

Maintaining the correct tyre pressure for your Jaguar is important. Apart from the obvious safety issues, if you don't run your car with the correct tyre pressures it will cost you dearly. Jaguar specific tyres are quite soft, and your car will eat tyres that are at the wrong pressure at a very rapid pace.
Under-Inflated tyres are prone to overheat (more surface area in contact with the road surface), reduce optimum fuel efficiency and degrade performance. Over-Inflated tyres can produce poor vehicle handling and an uncomfortable ride. Both over and under inflated tyres tend suffer more from road damage.
