Your vehicle’s tires are crucial to the performance of your vehicle. Proper inflation improves gas milage, enhances steering response, and adds a smooth ride. A lot is riding on your tires, and they must be maintained whether for work, play, or both.
It is recommended that you check your tire pressure at least once a month to ensure that they are properly inflated. Underinflation and over-inflation cause tread wear and reduces the life of your tires.
Checking tire pressure is simple to do and yet it has long-term effects. To begin you will need a tire gauge an air compressor and paper and pen. Most tire pressure gauges work mechanically, allowing the pressure in your tires to push a bar out of the tire gauge along a graduated scale that measures pressure in pounds per square inch or (psi). Other gauges measure psi through digital technology. There are air compressors out there that work off your vehicle’s 12-volt battery, some that plug into your home’s electric outlets and there are many gas stations that offer the use of a compressor for a small price or free. Here is how to check your tires’ air pressure with a gauge
