Why Should I Check My Tire Pressure?

Believe it or not, your automobile’s tires are a sieve. Tires leak air every day. The leakage is small but continuous. Tires are built with a stiff sidewall that helps to support the weight of your vehicle. The sidewall does not care if you can see tire deflation or not. However, the air pressure within the tire is reducing, and when you can see that reduction, then it is too late, the damage is already done.

Both tire and vehicle manufacturers recommend that you check your tire pressure every month, even if you have not driven your car. Air that is under pressure seeks release. Too little air-pressure leads to a dangerous condition that may cause a devastating accident. A simple pressure check is not a lot to ask of a driver whose safety is on the line.
