Whether you’re headed for the beach or the bush you’ll cover ground easier, and with less damage to the environment, if you drop your tyres down from their regular road-going pressures.

Reducing pressures increases the ‘footprint’ of the tyre so it conforms to the ground surface more easily. You get more traction and less wheelspin, so there’s fewer hassles, less wear and tear on your vehicle, and less wear and tear on the environment.
