Valves Help To Maintain Tyre Pressure, Vehicle Safety And Tyre Life
The valve in your wheel and tyre assembly is a small but very important part of your vehicle. It holds the pressure inside the tyre assembly and is the access point for regulating your tyre pressure. A valve cap in good condition is also essential as it provides the primary seal and prevents dirt from getting inside.
Rubber valves deteriorate with age and use. During use the valve may become damaged or worn but will inevitably deteriorate through aging and the force it is subjected to while driving. They are relatively inexpensive yet vital to the performance of tyres. It’s therefore recommended by manufacturers to replace valves every time your tyres are changed.
An increasing number of vehicle makes and models have pressure sensor valves. The sensors feed back automatically to the driver display and show variations to the manufacturer’s recommended tyre pressure.
