Tip of the Week

The start of Autumn means football games, changing leaves and pumpkin spice lattes.  Or, in our case, it means backyard BBQs, tail gaiting and watching the Carolina Panthers lose…again.

The cooler temperatures of Fall can also bring on that dreaded “low tire pressure”.  Air pressure in a tire decreases 1-2 pounds for ever degree in temperature drop.

Check your air pressure when the tires are cold, and add air as needed to return the pressure to the proper psi, as stated in your owner’s manual.

You should repeat this check every month throughout the fall and winter, as air temperatures continue to drop and fluctuate. To ensure a consistent and accurate reading, use the same tire pressure gauge each time!
