How to Check Your Tire Pressure

 

tire pressureHaving your tires properly inflated not only makes them safer to drive on but it also can get you better gas mileage as well as can make the ride more comfortable. It is easy to check your tire pressure and all you need is one tool, a gauge, which you can purchase for under $20. This is especially important to do in the winter time when you could potentially be driving in rough conditions.

Here are the steps you should take:

  1. Purchase a tire gauge
  2. Make sure that your tires are cold (haven’t been driven on in the past 3 hours)
  3. Insert the pressure gauge into the valve stem on your tire
  4. Compare the PSI to what is listed in the drivers manual
  5. If the number does not match, release or add air accordingly
