Understanding Tyre Placards
If you’re trying to understand the basics of your tyres, checking your tyre placard should generally be your first port of call outside of your owner’s manual. But what’s included on it – and where is it located?
At Tyrepower, we’ve put together this helpful guide about tyre placard stickers so you can better understand the information included. Keep reading to learn more.
What’s Included on Tyre Placards?
The tyre placard contains useful information about correct tyre use. This includes recommended tyre sizes and correct inflation pressures for front and rear tyres under normal driving conditions when released from the factory in original condition.
On your tyre placard you may also see pressure information for heavy loads and sustained high-speed operation. It’s important to note, however, that this is only a guide. If you have any questions, it’s a good idea to consult with a professional.
The team at Tyrepower can help you with all your tyre maintenance needs. We can also recommend the ideal pressures to use with new tyres, as different tyres typically have different pressure requirements.
Where are Tyre Placard Stickers Located?
The tyre placard sticker is usually contained in your car’s glove box, on the driver’s door pillar, or under the front bonnet. Here are a few examples of what the placard may look like:
