Steps For Maintaining Proper Tire Pressure

  1. Locate the recommended tire pressure on the vehicle's Tire and Loading information label located on the exterior front left side wall.
  2. Record the tire pressure of all tires.
  3. If the tire pressure is too high in any of the tires, slowly release air by gently pressing on the tire valve stem with the edge of your tire gauge util you get the correct pressure.
  4. If the tire pressure is too low, note the difference between the measured tired pressure and the correct tire pressure. These "missing" pounds of pressure are what you will need to add.
  5. At a service station or using an air compressor, add the missing pounds of air pressure to each tire that is under-inflated.
  6. Check all the tires to make sure they have the same air pressure.

if you have been driving your vehicle and thinl that a tire is under-inflated, fill it to the recommended cold inflation pressure indicated on your vehicle's Tire and Loading Information label. While your tire may still be under-inflated due to the extra pounds of pressure in the warm tire, it is safer to drive with air pressure that is slightly lower than the vehicle manufacturer's recommended cold inflation pressure than to drive with a significantly under-inflated tire. Since this is a temporary fix, do not forget to recheck and adjust the tire's pressure when you can obtain a cold reading.
