Keep tires inflated at the recommended pressure listed in your vehicle owner manual.
Does your spare tire have air in it? do you have a spare tire, jack and lug wrench in your trunk?
A few minutes checking now, can save a lot of aggravation later.
Check the air pressure in your car tires "Quarterly" or if they appear low, immediately!
A correct amount of pressure in tires not only increases the lifespan of the tire but also adds to the mileage and derivability of the vehicle. A tire pressure gauge should be used about once every three months to check the air pressure in your tires. After air pressure examination, reinstall the valve cap to prohibit moisture from entering the valve stem mechanism. At all times, a spare inflated tire mounted on a rim and a jack should be carried in the trunk of the vehicle. Usually, the rims of the car last for the lifetime of the car, unless you have a collision and they get bent.
Check the air pressure when the tire is cold. Vehicle tires become hot even after driving just a mile. If you must drive to add air, check your air pressure before you leave. Air pressure changes 1-2 pounds for every 10 degrees of temperature change. Air pressure goes up in warm weather and down in cold weather. Tire pressure must be the same on the tires of each axle, but may be different on the front and rear axle. Use the recommended size tire for your vehicle. Undersized tires can lose 10% of their life and waste gas.
Valve caps must be tightly closed to protect the valve from dust and dirt and prevent it from leaking. Replace missing valve caps
