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.
With the first official day of Fall behind us, much of the U.S. is seeing cooler temperatures. What does that mean for your tires and why does the low tire pressure symbol always come on during this time of year?
Plus sizing, in the simplest terms, is when the size of the tire and/or wheel is increased from the original size put on the vehicle by the manufacturer. Plus sizing tires can dramatically change the look and stance of your vehicle and if done correctly no change to the Engine Control Module (ECM) would be required.
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....
