How often do you check the air pressure in your tires? Are you aware that low air pressure and too much air pressure both contribute to premature tire wear? Ensuring that yours remains accurate is essential for tire longevity and avoiding spending money needlessly. Follow Lewis Motor Sales Inc's step-by-step procedures to maintain the correct air pressure for your tires.

Checking the air pressure is relatively easy. Using a tire gauge, which can be purchased at any parts store in Lafayette, IN, remove the valve cap and check the current reading. You will need to refer to your owners' manual or use the tire sidewall for the precise air pressure recommendation. Be careful not to overfill. And if you need to release some of the air for correction, remember to check the air pressure reading again before replacing the valve cap. Don't forget the spare! We also recommend checking the tire tread at the same time for consistent tire wear and quality condition.
