Tire Pressure Guidebook for Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram


Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram tire pressure guide tire service Beaumont, TX

So you see your tire pressure light flashing on the indicator panel and that’s when you could use a tire pressure guidebook, right? The majority of us recognize how easy it is to disregard this alert as a result of the headache with locating a service 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 freeway because you chose to overlook the indicator! There are a lot of reasons for low tire pressure: weather changes, normal wear and tear, or a slow leak in your tire. Whatever the reason might be, it is vital to get it looked into today. However, if you aren’t certain just how to tackle checking your tire pressure, do not worry. Mike Smith Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram is here to help with this handy tire pressure guidebook.


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 Read Tire Pressure

Your first step in inspecting 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 precise PSI (Pounds Per Square Inch) reading.

Second, find the manufacturer’s recommended PSI. This can be located in the owner’s manual or stamped inside the driver’s side door. Jot down the PSI requirements and head to your nearest air compressor. You can typically find one at most gas stations, car washes, or tire shops. A one-time 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 check the PSI one last time and you’re ready to roll!


When To Adjust Tire Pressure

The best routine is to inspect your tire pressure once a month. In most modern vehicles, you can browse the control panel settings for a digital measurement of the PSI for all tires. The computer-generated estimate, in some cases, can become slightly off. Therefore, the best technique is to use a PSI gauge.

Chillier weather condition can influence PSI as well. According to Goodyear, for every 10 degrees the temperature level drops, your tire pressure can decrease by 1-2 pounds and vice versa for temperature increases.


Why Find Tire Pressure

Maintaining your car’s tires is crucial for automotive performance, safety, and fuel economy. It’s what keeps your car rolling. A flat tire or a blowout when driving is not just a headache to deal with but it’s also very hazardous if there is not an emergency lane conveniently available. Treat your vehicle to some preventative maintenance and it will take care of you and your family for many smooth riding roads ahead.
