Tire Tips & More

Air Serv IconJust what is proper inflation, anyway?

It’s simply making sure your vehicle’s tires are at the pressure specified by the vehicle’s manufacturer. The right tire pressure varies by vehicle and by model, and is usually specified on a sticker inside the driver’s door jam, in the glove compartment, or in the vehicle owner’s manual. Do not use the tire pressure listed on the tire itself—that’s the maximum pressure to which a tire can be inflated, not the pressure for optimum driving and efficiency.
