How often should I put air in my car tires?
How frequently should I check my tire pressure? For my 19th birthday, my parents gifted me a car. I don’t know much about maintenance so far, but I want to learn as much as I can. Starting with the basics, I know I will eventually need to put more air in the tires, but I'm wondering if there is a timeline I should follow.
- If you live in a city where the temperature is pretty consistent year round, your tires will drop roughly one pound of pressure per month.
- But if you live in a city that experiences big swings in temperature in the summer and winter, your tire pressure can drop or rise drastically within a few days.
