One of the things that takes little time but helps your car a lot is checking the tire pressure.

Incorrect tire pressure not only causes tire damage but has a direct consequence on your safety
and stability on the road.

Here's the procedure :


1. The first thing you need to do,to make a proper check is to preferably put your car on a horizontal surface
(not on a uphill, downhill etc.)

2. You need a tire pressure gage (digital or analogue). If you don't have one in your car equipment, buy one.
Even the most fancy ones don't cost a lot and you can buy them almost everywhere.

3. Take off the cap on the air valve (put it in sight, you can loose it easily)

4. Put the gage on the valve and press. The gage will instantly tell you the tire pressure.

5. Look at the markings on the tire or the plate that's by the driver door. On them are the correct
values for the pressure on your tires.

6. Inflate or deflate the tire to the correct pressur

One thing I do with tyre pressures is check them out as to what the car likes best, so with some tyres the pressure will be higher than an other type.( for fast drivers with power mainly )this can help a lot or just the dude who likes to know the ability of his car in an emergency case and this could save your life or you car. ( but the average driver is not that switched on to be bothered with that scenario due to ignorance )

The plate that show the pressures is just a guide line.

I find mainly that tyres that handle best at a lower pressures are a better quality constructed tyre. some of the cheaper tyres need more pressure to get them to handle at optimum and are more influence with in the pressure range and I can know that the pressure has dropped with in 4 psi as it can make that much difference.

If there is more weight in the front of the car you will need more pressure in them than the lighter rear.
