Tips to Inflating Car Tires

Things Needed
– A garage or gas station that has a facility of Pressurized Air
– A Tire Pressure gauge

Step 1
First, one has to go to a garage or gas station that has a facility of pressurized air with a gauge.

Step 2
The car should be parked in such a way that one can reach all the four tires with the air hose.

Step 3
The air-pressure specifications of the car’s tires have to be found. There is a sticker located on the door jamb of driver’s side, trunk or in the glove box.

Step 4
The plastic cap on the air valve would have to be unscrewed. It should be put in the pocket so it does not get lost.

Step 5
The air pressure must be checked with the help of either a personal tire-pressure gauge or the one belonging to the gas station air pump. The gauge should be pressed against the valve and held down tightly. If a hissing noise is heard, then it means the air is leaking. It should be pressed down harder.

Step 6
Air should be added as necessary. The air pump hose should be pressed on the valve while squeezing the lever present at the end of the hose.

Step 7
The air pressure should be checked with the gauge. The air pump hose can also be used for checking.

Step 8
The tires must be deflated if they are accidentally overfilled. The small needle in the center of the valve should be pressed down to let the air out. There is a small knob on many tire-pressure gauges for this purpose, although a fingernail or a pen can also do the trick.

Tips and Warnings
– If the tire needs air every time while checking, a tire shop can be asked to inspect for any slow leaks.
– A good-quality tire-pressure gauge should always be kept in the car’s glove box. The cost of a good electronic one costs nearly about $20.
– The spare tire should not be forgotten to check and adding air in it as necessary.
– The tire’s sidewall should not be considered for air-pressure specifications. This is because it only lists the maximum pressure of the tire.
– A tire-pressure gauge should always be used for getting the right air pressure. One cannot afford to exceed or under inflate the tires.
