Whenever you inflate your tires, it’s important you’re paying attention to how much air you should be putting in. On average, tires usually take between 44 and 51 PSI nowadays. If you’re not sure how much air you should be putting in your tire, look for the marked PSI on your tire. Although it can be sometimes hard to read, the PSI is located on the side of the tire. If you can’t read it, take a wet cloth to dampen the rubber surface to help you get a better view. If you still cannot read it, look up the tire make and model for more information. You don’t want to accidentally inflate your tires under or over the recommended PSI.
Having your tires under or over inflated should never be ignored. Driving around on tires with low pressure can increase the chance of you getting a flat tire and causing damage to your vehicle. Not only can your suspension be affected, but you’ll notice your ride won’t be as smooth or silent either. Noises and vibrations can come from under your seat or steering wheel if you’re not careful to inflate your tires to the correct number.
Similarly, over inflating your tires is only going to harm your car. If you’re driving to and from work with over-inflated tires, you may be causing the unintentional uneven wear of your tires’ tread, leading to the possibility of a blow-out in conditions where your tires or wheels get too hot. In order to avoid these situations, all you have to do is adjust your tire pressure. If your car or truck’s wheels are over inflated, simply let some air out. If it’s underinflated, put some air in, but, again, make sure you’re putting in air in accordance to the tire’s PSI limits.
To correctly inflate a car tire, use a pressure tire gauge. We cannot stress enough the importance of really knowing how much air you’re putting in your tire instead of just eyeballing it. New Berlin Auto Repair has seen many instance where flat or blown-out tires could have been avoided had the advised PSI been taken into consideration. To check your tire pressure, you’ll need a few items, including a tire pressure gauge, notetaking supplies or a device, and an air compressor. Once you have everything you need, there are 4 steps you’ll need to follow to easily inflate and check your tire’s air pressure:
To fill your tire or wheels with air, follow our instructions for each tire. Start by removing the valve cap and placing the pressure gauge on its stem, pressing down enough so the hiss of the escaping air can no longer be heard. Your pressure gauge will give you its PSI reading. Decide if your tire needs its pressure increased or decreased. If it needs to be decreased, simply detach the gauge and let some air out until the gauge stays it matches its PSI. If it needs to be increased, grab your air compressor and fill your tires until the gauge reads they are at their recommended pressure levels.
If you don’t have the time to adjust your tire’s pressure, you’re not out of options. New Berlin Auto Repair is a trusted tire shop who can help you with your car and truck tire pressure needs.
