When your car is pulling one way, several factors could be at play, but checking the tire pressure is a quick fix that doesn’t cost you a dime. Here’s how to check the tire pressure on a Lexus RX 350:
  1. Look inside the driver’s side door jamb or the owner’s manual to get the
    correct tire pressure for your vehicle
  2. Make sure to check your tires while they’re cool. Don’t drive for 10 minutes prior to checking your tires to ensure that this is the case.
  3. Locate the valve stem on the tire and unscrew the valve stem cap.
  4. Press the head of the
    tire gauge
    onto the valve stem to get the tire pressure rating, quoted in pounds per square inch (psi).
  5. If the tire is overinflated, use the backside of the tire gauge to release air. If it’s underinflated, fill it with compressed air.
  6. Repeat for all tires until they’re at the correct psi.
