Upgrade your existing tyre inflator
Whether you are just popping down the road, going for a nice Sunday drive or even driving across Europe, using tyres that are road worthy is essential for a safe journey. Our range of Breakdown & emergency equipment covers everything from tyre inflators, digital gauges to air compressors and will ensure your tyres are fit for the road.
No matter how cheap or expensive your tyres are they will only work at their best when inflated properly. Not enough air pressure, then too much tyre surface comes into contact with the road, causing not just premature wear and tear but increased maintenance costs. Low air pressure can also over heat tyres, running the risk of tread separation which can lead to tyre failure and a potential incident.
The opposite also applies. Too much air pressure, then not enough tyre surface comes into contact with the road, causing traction issues and effecting your stopping distance. Not just that, with the loss of road contact steering is made more difficult and braking becomes dangerous, even more so in wet conditions.
Our Breakdown & emergency range not only increases tyre safety, but also helps make them become more efficient and cost effective too. Underinflated tyres poorly distribute the engines’ energy and results in increased petrol costs. Likewise, uneven tyre pressures result in them wearing down quicker than they otherwise would do, the RAC tyre inflator range will help you avoid this.
To ensure your tyres are inflated properly you will need to find out what their correct pressures are, as they can differ for front and back sets. Your handbook should have all the relevant information. Once you have the correct pressures you will need a gauge to check your tyres are inflated to the correct amount. Our range of inflators with digital gauges will help you be certain your tyres are the correct pressure.
