Correct tire inflation

All tires lose air, usually at a rate of about 0,69 bar or 1 pound per square inch (psi) week. This phenomenon can be accelerated by frequent driving long distances, rough roads and heavy loads, while the loss of air also increases in U & psi; iloteres temperatures. Check the tire pressure on a monthly basis and consider the possibility to control their feet at the same time. You should check your tires when they are cold - driving warms tires, dilating the air inside and increasing the risk of a false indication.

You can find the recommended pressure for your tires in the owner's manual of your vehicle or on the sidewall of your tire.

How to check your tire pressure

1. Use the gauge on the compressor at your local gas station or buy one from a car shop.

2. Locate the valve of your tire and unscrew the cap.

3. Press down on the valve with manometer - will hear a short whistle and pressure gauge needle should show a clue.

4. Compare the gauge pressure at the recommended price bar or psi of your tire.

5. Inflate or deflate as needed.

6. Recheck and adjust the pressure again until it is at the recommended level.

7. Replace the valve cap.

8. Repeat for all four tires.

If you notice unusual or excessive pressure drop may indicate a leak. Consult a professional.
