A Handyman’s Guide to Checking Tire Pressure
If you are concerned with the tire pressure of your vehicle then you will be happy to know that you don't need to take it to a mechanic each time you need the pressure in your tires checked. If you are going to be checking the pressure of your tires yourself, make sure the tires are cooled as them being heated up by the roads will affect the tire pressure. About once per month is how often you will want to check the pressure of your tires.
- If you are concerned with your tire pressure, you don't need to take it to a mechanic each time.
- Before your measure the pressure yourself, keep in mind that you will want the tires to be cold.
- Make sure the pressure across all the tires is the same, otherwise they will be unbalanced.
“Then, read the number on the tire pressure sensor, and write it down for future reference. It’s as easy as that! You can now compare the number, measured in pounds per square inch (PSI) of pressure, to the optimal pressure level.”
