Keeping the correct air pressure in the tires of your car, truck, SUV or crossover will help your tires last longer, save fuel, help your vehicle handle better, prevent accidents and even help the environment!

The Benefits of Correct Air Pressure

Experts agree that maintaining the correct air pressure in your tires is nearly as important as getting a tune-up for your engine.  Negative effects of underinflated tires results in poor gas mileage, shorter tire life and poor vehicle handling.

Make Air Pressure Checks Part of Your Maintenance Routine

Tires often get taken for granted since they don’t seem to need much attention. But, did you know that tires lose pressure each day?  In cool weather, a tire typically loses one or two pounds of air per month and in warmer weather, tires will lose air pressure at an even higher rate. Other factors cause a loss of tire pressure as well.

Check the air pressure on a regular basis, such as every other time you get gas. You should also have the air pressure checked when the tires are rotated. Also remember it’s important to have the pressure in your spare tire checked every few months.

Where To Find Air Pressure Information
The correct air pressure can be found in the vehicle owner’s manual or on the tire information label that is attached to the vehicle door edge, doorpost, glove box door or fuel door.

Environmental Impact
Routine air pressure maintenance can have a significant impact on our environment. Experts estimate that most drivers lose from 10% to as much as 50% of tire tread life due to underinflation. This means more tires ending up in our landfills. Underinflated tires burn extra fuel since they require extra energy to roll down the road.
