How Do I Check My Vehicles' Tire Pressure?
Checking the tire pressure in your vehicle is a part of routine maintenance. Under-inflated tires can lead to poor fuel economy and increased wear and tear, while over-inflated tires can make for a bumpier ride and decreased traction. Fortunately, checking the tire pressure is a quick and easy task that only takes a few minutes.
The first step is to find the correct tire pressure for your vehicle. You can find this information in the owner's manual or a sticker on the driver's door. Once you know the ideal tire pressure, use a digital tire gauge to check the pressure of each tire. If tires are low, add air until they reach the correct pressure. It's also a good idea to check the tread depth of your tires while you're at it.
How Often Should I Check My Tire Pressure?
Ideally, you should check your tire pressure at least once a month. This will help you catch any issues early and prevent problems later. You should also check your tire pressure if you hit a pothole or curb, as this can cause damage to your tires. If you notice any changes in your car's handling, such as more vibration or noise, this could signal that your tire pressure is off.
Of course, checking your tire pressure every month is not always possible. If you're going on a long road trip or driving in hot weather, it's a good idea to check your tires more often. And if you have a slow leak in one of your tires, you'll need to check it more frequently. If you need new tires due to damage or extensive wear and tear, our Parts Centre can help.
