Vehicle security Tyre pressure: Check tyre pressures, including the spare, every 14 days and prior to any long journey; tyres should be checked when cold. This also applies to vehicles with tyre pressure monitoring system. The tyre pressure data refers to cold tyres. It applies to summer and winter tyres. Always inflate the spare tyre to the value specified for full load. The ECO tyre pressure serves to achieve the smallest amount of fuel consumption possible. Incorrect tyre pressures will impair safety, vehicle handling, comfort and fuel economy and increase tyre wear. Warning: If the pressure is too low, this can result in considerable tyre warm-up and internal damage, leading to tread separation and even to tyre blow-out at high speeds.
