How to read your Tire

A leaky or under inflated tire not only causes damage to the tire, but also does not provide the necessary traction which is required during acceleration and braking. Tires that are inflated properly have much better contact with the road and will lend themselves to better traction during acceleration and braking conditions. Properly inflated tires also saves you money by providing longer tread life on your tires, and better fuel economy.


WHY CORRECT AIR PRESSURE MATTERS Keeping the correct air pressure in your tires helps your tires last longer, helps your car handle better and safer, and helps you save money on fuel.

CHECK AIR PRESSURE REGULARLY Most people forget about their tires until something goes wrong. The truth is, tires lose pressure daily. In cool weather, a tire will typically lose one or two pounds of air per month. In warm weather, tires lose even more air. 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. And don't forget to check the pressure in your spare tire.

WHAT IS THE CORRECT PRESSURE? The first place to look for the correct air pressure for your specific tires is your vehicle owner's manual. Correct air pressure should also be listed on the tire placard attached to the vehicle door edge, doorpost, glove box door or fuel door.
