We don’t want to see you stuck in pit-row so we’ve made it nice and easy for you to ensure that you’re always traveling on the right threads.
The auto repair experts on our Chrysler Service team near Huntington Beach have laid out these three simple steps to ensure that you’re vehicle has properly inflated tires.
You’ll find a simple tire air pressure gauge at most auto parts stores for a few dollars, or you can spring for a digital air pressure gauge even though it’s not a necessity. While many gas and service stations have air available that comes with it’s own gauges, it’s always good to have your own on hand.
First, you’re going to have to check your owner’s manual or the sticker located on the inside of the driver’s side door for the ideal pressure of your tires. Smaller compact and mid-size sedans typically have PSI levels between 30 and 40 PSI, while larger vehicles have around 45 PSIs.
You’re going to want to check your vehicle’s tire pressure when the tires are cold, because this will give the most accurate reading. Wait at least three hours after operating your vehicle for the tires to be ready. To get a PSI reading on your tire, place the gauge onto the valve stem evenly. Press the gauge down on the stem to get your reading.
Once you know if your tires need more air, you can head to your gas station or service station for air. Deposit coins into the air machine and get your hose ready. Put the air hose nozzle onto the tire stem and fill to the proper PSI. It’s important to have your gauge as you fill the tire to check the levels, as you don’t want to over-inflate your tires.
After you fill the tires to the desired levels, replace the stem caps by screwing them back on. You should check your tire pressure weekly, particularly with severe weather and temperature swings. By going through these steps, you’re now best suited for safe and optimal fuel-efficient driving.
