With our pressures of daily routine, it’s easy to forget to check Tire Pressure. However, it is very important to do so. As Fall is upon us, temperatures are changing, which affects tire pressure. It only takes a few minutes to check. It’s not very hard, but it could save you a lot of trouble “down the road” – no pun intended!
You can always go to your dealership or ask someone, or you can do it yourself by looking in the owner’s manual. You can also open the driver side door edge on your car and look for a sticker that has the tire pressure information on it. During temperature changes, the tire pressure will change as well, and you need to adjust it accordingly. This sticker will have information from the car manufacturer as to what your tire pressure should be.
