Tire Pressure Guide

Land Rover tire pressure guide tire service in Albuquerque

So you start your car, truck, or SUV and discover that your tire pressure light flashing on the dashboard (you know, the alert with the exclamation point) and that’s when you start googling for a tire pressure guidebook, right? A lot of us recognize how easy it is to ignore this alert because of the difficulty with locating a gas station with a working air compressor to inflate your tires. However the reality is, that headache pales in comparison to a blow-out on the highway because you chose to ignore the warning! There are plenty of reasons for low tire pressure: climate condition changes, regular wear and tear, or a leak in your tire. Whatever the reason may be, it is crucial to get it inspected immediately. But, if you aren’t sure how to check your tire pressure, do not worry. Land Rover Albuquerque wants to help with this handy tire pressure handbook.


What is Tire Pressure?

“Cold inflation pressure is the inflation pressure of tires before the car is driven and the tires warmed up. Recommended cold inflation pressure is displayed on the owner’s manual and on the placard (or sticker) attached to the vehicle door edge, pillar, glovebox door or fuel filler flap. Drivers are encouraged to make sure their tires are adequately inflated, as suboptimal tire pressure can greatly reduce fuel economy, increase emissions, increased wear on the edges of the tire surface, and can lead to premature failure of the tire. Excessive pressure, on the other hand, may lead to impact-breaks, decrease braking performance, and cause uneven wear (i.e., greater wear on the center part of the tire surface).”

How To Check Tire Pressure

The first thing you’ll want to do in measuring your tire’s air pressure is to ensure the tires are “cold” meaning they haven’t been driven on for about one hour. This will give you the most precise PSI (Pounds Per Square Inch) reading.

Second, locate the auto maker’s suggested PSI. This can be found in the owner’s manual or stamped inside the driver’s side door. Jot down the PSI requirements and head to your nearest air pump. You can typically find one at most car washes, tire shops, or gas stations. A one-time use will probably cost about $0.50 to $2.00.

Third, inspect the tire pressure with a PSI gauge. These gauges can be found at any retail store’s automotive department, an auto parts store, or in some cases they are available on the air pumps themselves. Simply fill the tire or tires to the specified PSI level then check the PSI one final time and you’re ready to roll!


When To Adjust Tire Pressure

The best routine is to check your tire pressure on a monthly basis. In the majority of today’s modern cars, you can scan the dashboard settings for a computer reading of the PSI for all the tires. The computer-generated estimate, sometimes, can become slightly off. Therefore, the best method is to use a pressure gauge.

Cooler weather can affect PSI too. According to Goodyear, for every 10 degrees the temperature goes down, your tire pressure can decrease by 1-2 pounds and vice versa for temperature increases.


Why Check Tire Pressure

maintaining your car, truck, or SUV’s tires is crucial for automotive safety, performance, and fuel economy. It is what literally keeps your car moving. A flat tire or a blowout when driving is not just a challenge to deal with but it’s also potentially dangerous if there is not an emergency lane conveniently available. Treat your car to some TLC and it will take care of you and your family for many smooth riding roads ahead.

Recently while traversing AZ we hit a pothole in our Jaguar and blew one tire and shredded the other. Fortunately we were able to get towed to Gallup and get two limp alongs that allowed us to get to Albuquerque where Jon Foss and the service team at Land Rover Albuquerque had reacted quickly and found two replacement tires before facilities closed on Saturday and were standing by when we pulled in. The new tires were installed and Jon went out of his way to recommend a hotel for us to spend the night at. Great service above and beyond ...
