Tips for Falling Tire Pressure

Having the right tire pressure has numerous advantages. A longer tread life, safer driving, improved traction and increased gas mileage. It's important to have a high-quality tire pressure gauge to get an accurate reading. Many people believe they can visually check a tire to see if it's low. This is a bad habit to have because you visually can't see a lower pressure tire until its well in the danger zone.

Another tip, look to your vehicle's manual to learn where your correct tire pressure is. Many people look at the tire themselves. The tire only lists maximum P.S.I. and every vehicle is designed to have a specific P.S.I. for the best performance and safety.

So don't delay and make sure you have a high-quality tire pressure gauge from Stop & Go on your vehicle at all times!
