Monitoring the correct tyre pressure for your car is a simple task that all car owners should be doing on a regular basis. But as we all know it can be easy to forget about. In just one month your car’s tyre pressure can decrease by as much as 10%, which can have a major impact on the life of your tyres and the control of your vehicle.
One point that many motorists make is “I always forget what the correct tyre pressure for my car is.”. So to make sure you always know we’ve put together 3 ways to find the correct tyre pressure for your car.
3 ways to find the correct tyre pressure for your car:
1. Check the driver side door frame
There is usually a sticker on the driver side door frame that will include the manufacturers recommended tyre pressure guide. If there isn’t a sticker check the glove box.
2. Check the owners manual
The owners manual holds all the info you need about your car and within the tyre/wheels section you should find the manufacturer recommended tyre pressure.
3. Google it!
With easy access to smartphones Googling the car make, model and year could be the easiest option of them all. From the comfort of your sofa in front of the TV you could find our the correct pressure with no need to get up and walk out to the car! A guide to searching for the right tyre pressure would be to start the search phrase with “correct tyre pressure for….” and then the car itself. You should then be greeted with multiple options and hopefully one that includes a forum for your particular car where you can find other important information.
Now that you’re armed with the right knowledge it’s time to head out and inflate those tyres. You’ll most likely find the automatic air pumps at your local service station. Just punch in the correct tyre pressure for your car, connect the pump to the tyre valve and you’re good to go!
