A Comprehensive Tire Pressure Guide

tire-pressure

Even the toughest, most capable vehicles rely on their tires in order to keep you moving forward. Our comprehensive tire pressure guide can provide you with all the information you’ll need to take care of these crucial, deceptively simple parts at home.

We know exactly how nerve-wracking it can be to drive on tires that you don’t trust. If you’re ready to move with confidence no matter where your day-to-day takes you, Land Rover Paramus has you covered. We’ll review:

  • Your recommended tire pressure
  • When to check your tire pressure
  • How to check your tire pressure
  • The signs and risks of underinflated tires
  • The signs and risks of overinflated tires
  • The right time to replace your tires

What is My Recommended Tire Pressure?

Most vehicles require tire pressure to be kept at some point between 32 and 36 psi. For model-specific recommendations, simply check your owner’s manual or give us a call at (844)924-8260. In many cases, you can also find the correct tire pressure listed on the driver’s side door jamb.

When Should I Check My Tire Pressure?

You should be checking the tire pressure for each tire on your vehicle at least once per month–and don’t forget about your spare! Tires can lose up to one pound per square inch (1 PSI per month), or even more when the temperature is fluctuating. Hot air expands and cold air retracts, and driving will heat up the air in your tires. So, check your tire pressure in the morning before you start to drive.

Keep in mind that tire pressure checks are just one component of a tire care regimen, one which should also include regular rotation, alignment, and balancing.

How Do I Check My Tire Pressure?

Even if your vehicle came equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS), you’ll want to pick up a tire pressure gauge from our parts department. The system will automatically tell you if one or more of your tires is 25% (or more) below the recommended air pressure level. However, you’ll still want to be able to get a more precise reading when you’re refilling your tires manually.

To check your tire pressure, simply insert the gauge into the air valve on the side of your tire. If you hear the hissing escape of air, adjust the gauge until you hear nothing. Then get your reading.

What Are the Signs of Low Tire Pressure?

Checking your tire pressure at least once per month is the ideal, and many new vehicles include a tire pressure monitoring system that can alert you to pressure changes automatically. Even so, it’s good to know the signs of a deeper issue:

  • Reduced fuel economy
  • Sluggish, unsatisfactory handling
  • Accelerated tire tread wear (on the edge of the tire)
  • Harder to stop on short notice
  • Increased tire heat and risk of blowouts

What Are the Signs of Overinflated Tires?

Of course, you don’t want to overinflate your tires either. Overinflation is associated with its own set of risks, including reduced braking performance, increased wear on the center of the tire, and a greater likelihood of blowouts. They’re also more vulnerable to damage since they’re less able to absorb the impact of the road.

While underinflated tires pose a greater risk than overinflated tires, it’s important to keep your tires as close to the factory-recommended standard as possible.

When Should I Replace My Tires?

Although it’s a good idea to equip winter tires whenever the temperature consistently drops below 40 degrees fahrenheit in the Fort Lee area, most tires will last for around six years of continuous use. When the time comes, we’d be happy to connect you to the perfect set of new Land Rover tires.

We include this information in our tire pressure guide because thinner, worn-down tires tend to lose air pressure more quickly than new tires. You might want to check your tire pressure more often than once per month if you’re driving on tires that you intend to replace in the near future. If you pick up new tires on your own, schedule installation at our dealership or find out how to change a tire at home.
