What's the one thing most overlooked by motorists yet proves to be a fundemental factor when it comes to keeping you on the road?


No matter insignificant some may think they are the truth is they are the single item that is between you and the tarmac below.

Tyres have to be at the correct pressure to function properly and work efficiently but it doesn't have to be something you do once in a blue moon.

The easy and cost-effective way to keep your tyres performing at their best is with a 12v portable air compressor or tyre inflator as you may sometimes hear them referred to as. Having your own compressor in the car is not only cheaper in the long run than relying on the supermarket or petrol station's machine but it also makes it so easy to keep on top of your pressures.
