Tire Pressure Prep For Seasonal Changes
Stay on Top of your Tire Pressure this Fall
Checking your tire pressure is an important part of vehicle maintenance and Total Auto has all the tools you need to make sure your client's needs are taken care of this fall. As seasons change and we move into chilly weather, it becomes even more important to be aware of your tire pressure and to make sure your company has all the items your team needs.
Why is it Important?
Of course, being aware of your tire pressure gives the driver better overall handling of their vehicle. The ideal tire pressure ranges based on tire brands and models. The preferred number for your tire will usually be listed on the side of the tire itself and tends to average out around 35.
When tire pressure is low, you will get fewer miles per gallon than what is optimal for your vehicle, and over time, the costs of this inefficiency will add up. Having less-than-ideal tire pressure also puts your vehicle, and even driver safety at risk. Poor tire pressure increases your risk of tires heating up and causing damage to your car.
Common causes for tire pressure change include:
Sudden changes in outdoor temperatures remain one of the most common causes for a difference in tire pressure, as air expands and contracts inside the tire. When a significant amount of air escapes from the tire, it can cause a drop in pressure.
A puncture in the tire can cause a drop in overall tire pressure, this is one of the warning signs that you may have a hole in your tire from something like driving over a nail or a sharp tool.
Sometimes, a change in tire pressure indicates that your vehicle's wheels are not in tip-top condition. This may be because the wheel is bent or has another form of damage from the normal wear and tear that occurs from the roads or a collision.
So, how can you be sure that your tire pressure is within the acceptable range? Total Auto offers a wide range of tire pressure sensors that will allow you to gauge the pressure in your tires, quickly and efficiently. If you find out that your tire pressure is too high or too low, you can move on to fixing the issue, which may include:
- Inflating the tires
- Releasing air from the valve
- In more extreme cases, getting new tires or replacing the wheel
