Why Correct Tire Pressure Matters

Keeping the correct air pressure in your tires can help your tires last longer, your car handle better and safer, and can even help you save money on fuel. You might be surprised to know that tires lose pressure daily. In warm weather, a tire can lose one or two pounds of air per month. In cold weather, tires can lose even more. That’s why it’s recommended that you check air pressure every other time you stop to fill up your gas tank. Keep in mind that many vehicles have different tire pressures on the front and rear axle. Make sure to check the pressure in your spare tire as well.

What Should My Tire Pressure Be?

Look for your vehicle’s recommended tire pressure in your owner’s manual. Correct tire pressure should also be listed on a sticker placed either on the vehicle's door jamb, doorpost, glove box door, or fuel door.

Why Is My Tire Pressure Light Blinking?

All cars manufactured after 2007 come equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) to notify drivers when their tire pressure is below recommended driving levels. With the TPMS, one of these symbols will light up on the dashboard when any tire is 25% under-inflated. If the TPMS symbol is blinking when the vehicle is started, there is an issue with the TPMS system. If the TPMS light is solid when the vehicle is started, that indicates low tire pressure.
