What's My Recommended Tire Pressure?
Tires Work Better With the Right Tire Pressure
Not-so-fun fact: your tires lose a little bit of pressure every single day. Over the course of a month in normal driving conditions, tires can lose up to 1 psi of inflation. For every ten degrees of ambient temperature change, you can expect your tires to lose an additional 1 psi. The air pressure in your tires will go up as the temperature increases from winter to summer, and it’ll drop when the colder months return. In other words, your tire pressure needs to be checked (and tweaked) often, because it’s not a one-time fix.

The Importance of Optimal Tire Pressure
There are plenty of benefits to driving on properly-inflated tires: you’ll get better gas mileage, your car will handle more smoothly, and your tires will last longer. More important than any of that, however, is your safety. When your tires are underinflated, you’re much more likely to get in a serious car accident. Checking your tire pressure may be a hassle for you, but it is the smart and safe thing to do. If you car is enabled with a TPMS sensor, it will let you know when your tire pressure drops below the recommended level.
When Should You Check Your Tire Pressure?
Should you check it every single morning? Once a month? It’s probably not realistic for you to check your tire pressure every single day (and who wants to do that?), but it’s not something that should go unchecked for weeks on end. A good rule of thumb is to check your tire pressure every other time you fill up your gas tank.
Look in your vehicle owner’s manual to find out what the pressure should be. You should also be able to find it on the tire placard on your driver’s door, doorpost, glove box door, or fuel door.
