You donʼt have to be a mechanic to understand how important proper air pressure in your vehicle's tires is for safety. Underinflated tires or low tire pressure can pull to one side, feel squishy, and can compromise the rigidity of your tireʼs sidewall. Overinflated tires or above maximum pressure can be dangerous as well, especially with summer performance tires. Having too much air can affect your tireʼs grip, causing unexpected understeer at the worst times. Either situation can subject your car to uneven tire wear and tire failure, which drastically shortens the lifespan of your tire. A car tire pressure gauge lets you check your car's tire pressure on the fly by simply connecting it to your tire valve stem - no need to visit a gas station or tire shop. AutoMeter's tire pressure gauges provide accurate readings in a range of settings, making them a must-have tool for any vehicle owner.
How important is a tire air pressure gauge? An accurate gauge reading from a tire pressure gauge is crucial to ensuring proper tire inflation and avoiding tire failure. Keeping a tire pressure gauge in your glove compartment is essential to maintain properly inflated tires. Be sure to check your tire pressure regularly to avoid tire failure. It's highly advised to use a tire gauge at the gas station or at home before a long trip to ensure that you are driving on tires that are inflated to the correct pressure, measured in pounds per square inch (PSI). Beyond safety, adjusting your car's tire pressure in off-road vehicles is key to overcoming stubborn obstacles or deep sand. Airing down to get the correct tire pressure is very common practice, but how do you know exactly how much air to let out without an air compressor? A tire gauge reading shows the pressure reading so you can benchmark the perfect sweet spot for any terrain.
