Title: Maintaining car tire pressure


1
Maintaining Car Tire Pressure
2
A part of any month-to-month car maintenance plan
is checking the pressure of one's tires.
3
When properly blowing up wheels your car will
get better gas mileage plus your tire's life will
be lengthened.
4
Tire pressure is important to a car's overall
performance.
5
Using a basic tire pressure gauge you can
examine your own tire pressure.
6
Gauges can be found for as low as three dollars
for a basic one or more for the better digital
one.
7
Once you have a tire pressure gauge you may need
to check the owner's manual to obtain the best
pressure for your tires.
8
If you have lost your owner's manual there
should be a sticker label on the inside of one of
the doors.
9
Difficulties with Wrong Tire Pressure
10
Count on having lowered gas mileage by having the
incorrect tire pressure.
11
Gas prices in todays economic system can be
difficult to deal with.
12
A moment spent at a fuel station is a free and
easy method to improve your gasoline efficiency.
13
Having the incorrect tire pressure can cause
your wheels to be worn much more quickly.
14
Not everybody really wants to buy new wheels
more than they need to due to them being so
expensive.
15
The inaccurate tire pressure is only a accident
waiting to appear.
16
Sliding due to loss of grip or even a blowout
from destroyed wheels is something that can
happen.
17
Techniques to Check and Maintain Tire Pressure
18
First off you will need to find your ideal tire
pressure for your vehicle, which can be found in
your owner's manual, data stickers, or even
on-line.
19
Once you know the appropirate pressure you must
make the trip to a nearby service station and use
their air compressor.
20
The majority of service stations will have one,
but if the one you visited did not have one try
the next one.
21
After that, you must take off rubber covers
which are on the wheel stems and now you are free
to connect the air compressor to your tire.
22
Fill your wheel with air for a couple of minutes
and then remove the hose and place your gauge on
the stem to check your pressure.
23
Perform repeatedly as needed to reach perfect
pressure.
24
As soon as you have performed all 4 wheels you
can place the plastic tops back on and you are
all set to go.
25
Importance of Tire Pressure
26
Tire pressure must be inspected monthly along
with other maintenance.
27
Without the proper tire pressure you can suffer
from decreased fuel consumption as well as
damaged tires.
28
An easy stop at a gas station can prevent such
issues and keep you on the road longer and much
more safely.
