A friendly reminder: Check your tire pressure regularly
Good tire pressure improves gas mileage, helps your car handle better, and reduces the risk of blowouts.
So, what should you do if you suspect your tires are low on air?
- Start by purchasing a quality gauge. It’s a good idea to keep this in your glove compartment so it’s always handy.
- Locate the correct air pressure specifications for your vehicle. Find these on the inside your driver’s side door or in your owner’s manual.
- Unscrew the plastic cap on your tire and use the gauge to evaluate your tire pressure. (Be sure to push down firmly. If you hear a hissing sound, you are letting air out of your tire.)
- Add air as needed, being careful not to overfill.
Play it safe! Get in the habit of checking your tire pressure once a month to keep your vehicle in tip-top shape!
