3 tips to keep you rolling this summer!
Summer is here to stay! We all know we need to keep our car tires inflated properly. If you are driving down the road and your car begins to pull slightly to the right or left, this might mean you have a low air pressure on your tire. But do we really know how to properly check and inflate your tires according to the weather?
Tip 1: Check your tires in the morning before you head over to the air pressure pump/gas station. This is important as the pressure increases 1 PSI for 10 degrees Fahrenheit.
Not only that as you begin to drive your tires get warm therefore increasing the tire pressure.
Tip 2: Use a digital air pressure gage. I learn this the hard way, always buying the dollar air pressure gage that always read the same tire differently. Toss it out and buy a digital one, it might be a bit more expensive but it will be worth your money.
Tip 3: Do not inflate to the max. The PSI number on your tire is the maximum air pressure your tire should be inflated. Read the owners manual or the side of the driver door to follow the manufacture tire pressure recommendation.
Bonus tip: Check regularly. as temperature changes so does your tire pressure. We recommend you check at lease once a month, and if your traveling far. By doing so you will keep yourself safe, if you are traveling with your family it will keep your family safe, and it will save you a lot of money on the long run.
