Proper tire inflation can help prevent Car accidents in the Austin area. As the old saying goes, if you don’t like the Texas weather, wait 15 minutes. I can’t remember the last winter where we had 32 degree freezing rain one day and 80+ degrees of sunshine the next. All those temperature changes can greatly affect your car’s tires.
In cool weather, you can lose up to two pounds of tire pressure per month, while in warm weather you can lose 3-5 pounds per month. Keeping your factory recommended air pressure will help you save gas, preserve your tires, obtain better handling and control out of your car, and prevent tire blowouts.
The recommended tire pressure for your vehicle should be listed in the label on the inside of your driver’s door edge or doorpost. Please check your pressures at least once a month. I have seen too many accidents cause life changing injuries which could have been prevented by proper tire inflation.
