Car/Truck tire pressure

Make sure folks with aluminum rims check the tire pressure in your vehicles with all of this cold weather. I checked mine tonight and 3 of them were at half of what I normally keep them at.

Yup, I've made a habit of just checking the tires on all the cars that come through the shop. This way every time the customer gets their car back from us it always feels better no matter what we did. "Ever since you changed my wiper blades the car handles better and my gas mileage went up" .

most of our cars come with tire mointering system, so if i don't check it theres a good chance the tire warning light comes on soon as they leave the shop

At least on my GTP, my tire monitor thing comes on after every rotation. I just double check to make sure everything is good and then reset it.

Good post BTW. I had to put air in all 4 Mazda tires. They were all hovering around 25 psi. My little cigarette lighter air pump worked okay..little slow for a car tire.

Must not have been an option on my '98 Neon. Great advice, I crashed on the Kawi because I didnt check my air pressure. I am actively tring to buy an air compressor now.

One nice feature on the Denali is it provides a pressure readout from each wheel on the fly. You can actually see pressures rise/fall with ambient changes and as the tires come to temp on longer trips.
