Air Pressure Tire Maintenance

How often do you check the air pressure in your tires? Did you know checking the air in tires should be done once a month? Here are tips on how to quickly maintain air pressure in your tires.

According to an article at, “The Importance of Tire Maintenance”

18263637_s“Incorrect air pressure can lead to uneven tire wear, decreased fuel mileage, poor ride quality or even an accident. So, checking tire air pressure is a maintenance item that should be done on a regular basis. Luckily, it is quick and easy to do.

Things Needed
Tire gauge

  • Step 1
    Find your vehicle manufacturer’s recommended tire air pressure. It will be written in your vehicle owner’s manual or on a sticker inside of the vehicle doors.
  • Step 2
    Remove the cap from the valve stem on the tire to be tested. Leave the cap in a safe place where it cannot roll away.
  • Step 3
    Press the open end of a tire gauge firmly onto your tire’s valve stem, hard enough so that you do not hear any air escaping.
  • Step 4
    Read the pressure on the tire gauge. If the tire’s air pressure is below the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended tire air pressure level, then you will need to add air to the tire until the tire air pressure reaches the manufacturer’s recommended level.
  • Step 5
    Check the tire’s air pressure again after adding air. Repeat the process of adding air and checking the tire’s air pressure until the tire reaches the manufacturer’s recommended level.
  • Step 6
    Replace the cap on the valve stem once the tire’s air pressure reaches the manufacturer’s recommended tire air pressure level.” To read the entire article click here.
