Tire pressure often goes overlooked by most car owners. The question that many do not know the answer to or forget about is, "How often should you check your tire pressure?" We will discuss that in this article.

Tire service is very important. It ensures your safety while driving down the road! Tires that are not properly inflated can result in a number of problems. Your rims might be messed up if your tire pressure is too low. If your tire pressure is too high then you will have less traction. Perfectly inflated tires are ideal for your driving experience.

So how often should you check your tire pressure? There are several factors that affect how often you will need to check.

One of the most contributory factors is cold. Extremely cold temperatures can cause your tires to lose air faster than normal. If your car endures these temperatures on a daily basis then you should check them at least once every week or two.

A way you can judge if one of your tires is low is to briefly let go of your steering wheel while driving on a straight road. If one of the front tires is low then you will start to drift either right or left. Often one tire will deflate faster than the other so this is a good way to tell if one is low. Another factor that speeds up deflation is bumpy roads. If you drive in areas where sharp rocks or other objects could pop your tires then you should check them often as well.

Wondering how often should you check your tire pressure? Contact our ASE Certified technicians at Heights Car Care today for more information about tire service and to schedule an appointment.
