Car Tire Pressure Maintenance

Learning how to fill your tires with air is a simple skill that anyone can master. Just follow these steps to bring your car tire pressure to the recommended PSI in seconds.

  • Find an air dispenser at your local gas station.
  • Pull up to the dispenser and make sure you can reach all four tires with the hose.
  • Remove the cap from the first tire valve.
  • Use the gauge to check the air pressure.
  • Add air with the hose or let out air at the valve, depending on your readout.
  • Repeat the process for all four tires.

The gauges at your local gas station are used heavily, so they might not be the most accurate. So, it’s good to avoid over-or underinflating your tires. Use short bursts of air from the air hose and if you add too much, just press the pin on the tire valve with the back of the air hose nozzle.

How Much Air Should I Put in My Tires?

How much air should I put in my tires to get the best performance in Lincoln? Your ideal car tire pressure is written on a sticker inside the driver’s door of your car, and it’s also in your owner’s manual. Most passenger cars tend to fall between 32 and 35 PSI (pound per square inch). Here are a few tips and tricks to keep in mind.

  • You’ll get the most accurate measurements if you check your air pressure while the tire has cooled because the heat and friction of the road can cause the tire to expand slightly.
  • Be sure to use the guidelines in the owner’s manual or car sticker to find your PSI. Do not use the PSI printed on the actual tire, because that figure represents the maximum amount of air the tire can hold.
  • Does your car feel different on the Fremont roads? Overinflated tires feel bouncy and difficult to handle, while underinflated tires are harder to steer and may even cause vibrations.
