Finding the right amount of PSI (PSI definition: PSI is a unit of pressure expressed in pounds of force per square inch of area. It stands for Pounds per Square Inch) for your tires can sometimes be tricky. You want to make sure this is as accurate as possible.
NEVER inflate your tires to the pressure listed on the tire itself. That number is the maximum pressure the tire can hold, not the recommended pressure for the vehicle.
You MUST go with the PSI recommended for each vehicle specifically.
Overinflation of your tires will give you a bouncy ride and an ill-handling car, while driving on underinflated tires can cause premature wear from increased friction.
To find the correct PSI (Tire Pressure for your vehicle) Locate a yellow sticker in the door-jamb on the driver side, and it is also contained in the owner’s manual. It might call for different pressure levels for the front and the rear tires.
Cracked and Bulging tires usually comes from hitting something. Under-inflation and over-inflation put tires at a greater risk of damage from impacts. Large cracks in the sidewall that runs along the rim are either impact-related or caused by chronic under-inflation....
How often do you check your tire pressure? You probably already know that tire pressure is important when it comes to safe driving, but it can also cost you money if you don’t keep an eye on it. Temperature really affects your tire pressure! The tire pressure then affects your tires’ grip It’s important to know
It is ok if you don’t. It has only been around and on cars built after 2008. TPMS is your cars Tire Pressure Monitoring System. The TPMS symbol is either a cross-section of a tire with an exclamation point in it or an overhead view of a car with all four tires exposed. The feature is standard on all 2008
