Tire Safety and Maintenance

by Reliable Transmissions on 02/23/15

When it comes to tire pressure, you want to aim for a happy medium. Over-inflated tires ride roughly and wear prematurely at the center of their tread. Under-inflated tires decrease fuel economy, cause imprecise handling, wear prematurely at the edge of their treads, and can overheat and fail at highway speeds.


Here are some helpful tips for tire safety and maintenance:

  • Check your vehicle's tire pressures at least once a month, because tires typically lose about one pound of pressure per month through normal seepage.
  • For the most accurate reading, check tire pressures when the tires are cold.
  • Always follow the inflation pressure recommendations in your vehicle owner's manual or on the tire information label located in the glove box or on the driver's door jamb.
  • Tires lose (in cold weather) and gain (in warm weather) about a pound of pressure with every 10 degree change in temperature.
Not sure if your tires have the correct amount of pressure? Stop by Reliable Transmissions in North Austin or South Austin and let us take a look for you. We want to ensure you are driving safe on the road.
