Maintaining your Vehicles Tire Pressure

Tire Air Pressure

Maximize your tires’ performance and durability by monitoring and maintaining correct air pressure.

Air is a gas, expanding when heated and contracting when cooled. For most of North America, fall and early winter are especially important times for checking tire pressure – as the ambient temperature falls, tire pressure goes down.

A good rule of thumb is that every 10 degrees Fahrenheit temperature change, tire pressure changes about 1 psi — higher as temperatures rise, lower as they fall. Also, check your vehicle’s owner manual for recommended tire pressure.

Under-inflated tires can cause:

  • Premature or irregular wear
  • Poor handling
  • Reduced fuel economy

Over-inflated tires can cause:

  • Unusual wear
  • Poor handling
  • Reduced fuel economy

Checking Air Pressure

Check your vehicle’s tires at least once a month when the tires are cold (let the vehicle sit for at least 3 hours). Look in your owner manual for the recommended tire inflation for your vehicle. Use a quality gauge. Don’t eyeball tires — radial tires can look fine even when they’re
under-inflated.

Be sure to look for objects that have become wedged in the tread — they can work themselves further into the tire and cause air loss.

And don’t forget to check the spare!
