How to check tire pressure


What is the trick in figuring out that the air is low in your car’s tires and more air needs to be added?

It’s absolutely simple to check. You’ll need a tire pressure gauge, which is inexpensive to buy from your local auto supply store. Then open your driver’s side door. You should see a sticker on the fixed panel inside the doorjamb that tells you the optimum air pressure for your front and rear tires. In some cases, the pressure will be different for the front and rear set of tires, but the sticker will let you know that.

If the sticker is missing, check your owner’s manual for the correct tire pressure. Or go online to the manufacturer’s website and access your models “specs.”
