Tire Pressure Maintenance For Dummies

Mercedes-Benz tire pressure guide tire service Los Angeles

So you start your vehicle and see that your tire pressure light has lit up on the dashboard and that’s the point when you could use a tire pressure handbook, right? Most of us acknowledge how simple it is to disregard this alert because of the challenge with locating a gas station with a functioning air compressor to inflate your tires. However the truth is, that frustration pales in comparison to a blow-out on the freeway because you decided to overlook the warning! There is a list of reasons for low tire pressure: climate condition changes, regular wear and tear, or a slow leak in your tire. Whatever the reason may be, it is vital to get it checked out as soon as possible. However, if you aren’t sure just how to go about checking your tire pressure, do not worry. Mercedes-Benz of Beverly Hills 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, glove box 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 Gauge Tire Pressure

The first thing you’ll want to do in checking your tire’s air pressure is to make certain the tires are “cold” meaning they haven’t been driven on for at least an hour. This will give you the most exact PSI (Pounds Per Square Inch) measurement.

Second, find the manufacturer’s suggested PSI. This can be found in the owner’s manual or stamped inside the driver’s side door. Make a note of the PSI requirements and head to your nearest air compressor. You can normally find one at most tire shops, service stations, or car washes. A single use will probably cost about $0.50 to $2.00.

Third, inspect the tire pressure with an air 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 inspect the PSI one last time and you’re ready to roll!


When To Check Tire Pressure

The best routine is to inspect your tire pressure routinely by the month. In most modern-day cars, trucks, and SUVs, you can flip through the dashboard settings for a computer reading of the PSI for all the tires. The computer-generated estimate, occasionally, can become slightly off. Therefore, the most effective approach is to use a PSI gauge.

Cooler weather conditions can influence 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 Read Tire Pressure

Taking care of your vehicle’s tires is important for automotive safety, performance, and fuel economy. It’s what keeps your car moving. A flat tire or a blowout when traveling is not just a hassle to deal with but it’s also very dangerous if there is not an emergency lane conveniently available. Treat your vehicle to some TLC and it will take care of you and your passengers for many smooth riding journeys to come.


Schedule a Tire Inspection

Are you concerned about your tire pressure, but aren’t quite sure what to do next? Don’t worry. Our trained Mercedes-Benz technicians are here to assist. Drop in to our service department today and allow us to have a look at your tires. Don’t wait until it’s flat. The best thing for low tire pressure is to assess and fix any issues early, when there’s still pressure in it.
