Tire pressure in the cold: watch those numbers


Tire pressure may not be at the top of the list of things you worry about while you drive, but improperly inflated tires can have a significant negative impact on your overall driving experience. With winter in full swing, it's important to note that temperature variations can wreak havoc where your tire pressure is concerned. In fact, in cold weather, the pressure in your tires can vary greatly, sometimes dipping to dangerously low levels.

If tire pressure gets too low, the risks include premature wear, poor handling, and decreased gas mileage. Low inflation levels can also cause extreme friction and increase the likelihood of a blowout. By performing monthly checks and staying aware of the variables, you can keep your vehicle running smooth, at least where your tires are concerned.
