Posted at Wed, Jun 7, 2017 2:00 PM

Keeping the correct air pressure in the tires of your vehicle will help your tires last longer, save fuel, improve handling and even prevent accidents! It also helps the environment. Your Tim’s Truck Capital & Auto Sales dealership in Epsom, NH has some tips to share with you about maintaining proper air pressure in your tires. We want to keep you safe.

The Benefits of Correct Air Pressure

Did you know that maintaining the correct air pressure in your tires is as important as getting a tune-up? Failing to maintain the correct air pressure actually results in poor gas mileage, shorter tire life, poor vehicle handling and can even cause vehicle overloading.

Make Air Pressure Checks Part of Your Maintenance Routine

It’s easy to take our vehicle’s tires for granted, 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. In warmer weather, tires can lose air at an even higher rate. Other factors cause a loss of tire pressure as well. That’s why it’s so important to to regularly check your tire pressure.

We Recommend Checking the Air Pressure on a Regular Basis
This could be every other time you get gas. Also remember to check the pressure in your spare tire so you’re not caught by surprise in case you have a flat.

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

Environmental Impact
Routine air pressure maintenance has a major impact on the environment. Experts estimate that most drivers lose from 10% to as much as 50% of tire tread life due to underinflation, resulting in lots of tires filling our landfills. Underinflated tires burn extra fuel since they require extra energy to roll if they are underinflated.
