Tyre Valve Dust Caps


Jan 13, 2019
A daft Q, perhaps but seriously asked!

I had 4 new Bridgestone tyres fitted, for the MOT at Local Formula 1.

They set the tyre pressure at 42, which produced a warning of low pressure. The chap said they had checked and it will go when I drove it! It did after a warm up. It was very dark and closing time for them.

I usually put in 45, as stated on the door sticker, so have visited filling station and put in 45. I then noticed that each valve had a standard black dust cap. Then my memory failed! I thought/think the Tesla dustcaps were better than the black plastic ones....or am I making it up?
Model S 2016.

I am also now thinking...have they got the right torque?????
