The air pressure for each tire is important. This will help to ensure that the tires are always properly inflated, and in the best condition possible. If the tires are underinflated, then there is a chance the tires will blow when you are driving down the road. Tires that are over inflated than the correct amount can pick up sharp objects on the surface of the road as well. You will want to check the air pressure compared to the recommend amount by the vehicle manufacturer. Inside the driver’s doorjamb, you will have a sticker that has the recommended psi for each tire. This is what they should be inflated to. If you are not sure, you can also check the vehicle owner’s manual.
If you are uncomfortable putting air in the tires, you can contact us and bring the vehicle in. That way we can double check the correct amount for the front and rear tires of the vehicle. While the tires are inflated, also make sure to check the overall condition of them. This way any signs of damage can be found and have them corrected quickly. If the damage is a risk, then a new set of tires will be recommended. You may also notice some signs that alert you to poor air pressure. If the vehicle tends to swerve in a direction, that could be the side that the tire is low on air from. You will want to make sure that you check the tires often, that way you can prevent an issue.
As it gets colder out, you may notice the tires getting a little low. Make sure to test them regularly. If a tire gets extremely low and often, you will want to contact us. By scheduling an appointment, you can bring the vehicle in and we can inspect it over for you. This will also help you to stay safe while on the road this fall and winter.
