When Should You Put Air in Your Tires?

Inflate your tires when they are cold. If you’ve driven more than a couple miles, you’ll want to wait until they are cold. The best time to refill your tires is first thing in the morning. You can usually set the desired PSI level on the machine at the gas station (probably around 30-35 PSI).

Why won’t my tires take air?

The most common cause of this kind of leak is small gravel stones or dry grass getting stuck between the tyre and the wheel. These flakes won’t be enough to completely unseat the tyre, but they will introduce a route by which the pressurised air inside the tyre could escape to the atmosphere.

How do you know how much air to put in your tires?

On newer cars, the recommended tire pressure is most commonly listed on a sticker inside the driver’s door. If there’s no sticker on the door, you can usually find the specs in the owner’s manual. Most passenger cars will recommend 32 psi to 35 psi in the tires when they’re cold.
