Tires are safety-relevant items that are only capable of meeting the requirements applicable if they are run at the correct tire pressure and with sufficient tread depth.
The tire pressures indicated are minimum pressures. The tires must never be run at lower pressures since this affects roadhoiding in a negative manner and may lead to severe tire damage.
Valve caps protect the valve against dust and dirt and therefore help prevent leaks. Always screw on caps tightly and replace missing caps.
For safety reasons, do not limit tire checks to checking the tire pressure but also check for sufficient tread depth, ingress of foreign matter, pinholes, cuts, tears and bulges in the sidewalls (cord break)!
