The tires are one of the most important parts on your vehicle. It is the only thing between you and the highway and allows for your vehicle to move. Putting air in your tire is a quick and simple process to help ensure the tires are always in the best condition possible. If you are unsure about the air pressure, make sure to bring it in. This is important to use the recommended by the manufacturer for the correct amount of air needed for the tires. This can help improve the wear of the ties, as well as provide a good quality ride. Tires that are inflated to the correct air pressure can also help to improve the mileage with your vehicle. This will then increase the life of the tires and vehicle.

Inspect the Air Pressure in the Tires

tire-repair-2Tire pressure gauges are comprised of a matching valve to a tire valve. This allows the tire’s inner air to be forced through a measuring device that tracks and records the total amount of air pressure inside of the tire. You can find digital measuring tools which relay the pressure via a digital reading rather than a dial as you see on most tire gauges. Tire gauges are used to measure the amount of air pressure that is in your tire. The air pressure is measured in PSI or pounds per square inch. All vehicles have their own recommended psi amount, which can be found in the owner’s manual. It can also be found on the inside of the driver’s door of the vehicle.

Look for signs that the Tires need Air

Keeping the tires at their recommended pressure will help to increase their life span. By using your tire pressure gauge, press the gauge hard against the valve and note the reading on the dial. Repeat this step on all four of the tires, carefully reading and filling the tire properly. Tire pressures rise in the hot weather and fall in the cold as the air expands and contacts. Since the tire pressure will vary with the seasons, it is recommended that your tire pressure be checked at least once a month. If you are not certain if there is an issue with the tires, make sure to bring the vehicle in so we can inspect the tires for you. This can help to provide a safe and reliable ride when you travel.

How to fill up the Tire properly

Begin by using the tire gauge reader to measure the psi. From there add the needed amount of air to get the gauge to read within the proper range. If you accidently overfill your tires with air then just deflate them by pressing down on the small needle in the center of the valve to let air out. Most tire pressure gauges have a small knob for this purpose, but your fingertip or a pen can do the trick too. Having too much air in your tires can pose a problem as well. It can cause uneven tire wear, unbalanced ride, and you can also blow the tire while driving.
