Tire Pressure
Road grip gets increasingly important as the mercury drops and streets get mucky. Therefore, tire care is critically important, and you need to look inside and outside your tires. Inside, it’s all about pressure. According to the American Automobile Association, as the outside temperature drops so will air pressure in your tires. The average rate of pressure drop is one psi for every 10-degree Fahrenheit reduction in temperature. Check all four tires as well as the spare, and do so periodically throughout the winter. Proper inflation rates can be found on a sticker affixed to the driver door jamb and/or in the vehicle’s owner’s manual.
