Tire Pressure Guide for Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram

Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram tire pressure guide tire service Oklahoma City, OK

So you start your car and see that your tire pressure warning light flashing on the dashboard (you know, the one with the exclamation point) and that’s when you start googling for a tire pressure guide, right? A lot of us acknowledge how simple it is to disregard this alert because of the frustration with finding a gas station with a working air compressor to inflate your tires. However the fact is, that frustration pales in comparison to a blow-out on the highway because you decided to ignore the warning! There are plenty of reasons for low tire pressure: climate condition changes, typical wear, and tear, or a leak in your tire. Whatever the reason may be, it is vital to get it inspected right now. However, if you aren’t sure exactly how to tackle checking your tire pressure, do not stress. Bob Howard Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram is here to help with this handy tire pressure handbook.


What is Tire Pressure?

“Cold inflation pressure is the inflation pressure of tires before the car is driven and the tires warmed up. Recommended cold inflation pressure is displayed on the owner’s manual and on the placard (or sticker) attached to the vehicle door edge, pillar, glovebox door or fuel filler flap. Drivers are encouraged to make sure their tires are adequately inflated, as suboptimal tire pressure can greatly reduce fuel economy, increase emissions, increased wear on the edges of the tire surface, and can lead to premature failure of the tire. Excessive pressure, on the other hand, may lead to impact-breaks, decrease braking performance, and cause uneven wear (i.e., greater wear on the center part of the tire surface).”

How To Measure Tire Pressure

Your first step in measuring your tire’s air pressure is to make certain the tires are “cold” meaning they haven’t been driven on for at least one hour. This will give you the most accurate PSI (Pounds Per Square Inch) reading.

Second, find the manufacturer’s suggested PSI. This can be found in the owner’s manual or stamped inside the driver’s side door. Make a note of the PSI requirements and head to your nearest air compressor. You can usually locate one at most tire shops, car washes, or gas stations. A one-time use will probably cost about $0.50 to $2.00.

Third, inspect the tire pressure with a pressure gauge. These gauges can be found at any retail store’s automotive department, an auto parts store, or sometimes they are available on the air pumps themselves. Simply fill the tire or tires to the specified PSI level then inspect the PSI one final time and you’re ready to roll!


When To Check Tire Pressure

The most effective routine is to check your tire pressure once a month. In the majority of today’s modern-day vehicles, you can browse the dashboard settings for a computer reading of the PSI on all the tires. The computer-generated estimate, in some cases, can become slightly off. Therefore, the best approach is to use an air gauge.

Colder weather conditions can influence PSI too. According to Goodyear, for every 10 degrees the temperature drops, your tire pressure can decrease by 1-2 pounds and vice versa for temperature level increases.


Why Read Tire Pressure

Taking care of your vehicle’s tires is vital for automotive performance, safety, and fuel economy. It’s what keeps your vehicle moving. A flat tire or a blowout when driving is not just a hassle to take care of but it’s also very hazardous if there is not an emergency lane readily available. Treat your car to some preventative maintenance and it will take care of you and your passengers for many smooth riding journeys to come.


Schedule a Tire Inspection

Are you preoccupied about your tire pressure, but aren’t sure what to do? Don’t fret. Our certified Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram specialists are standing by. Drop by to our service department today and let us have a look at your tires. Don’t wait until they’re flat. The best way to handle low tire pressure is always to assess and fix it early when there is still air pressure in your tire.
