Tires

Pressure

Paying attention to your tires pressure can save on their wear . In cold weather, a tire can lose a pound or more of pressure for each drop of 10 degrees F.

Try a monthly inflation pressure check when the tire is cold, before driving anywhere. Look in the glove compartment or on the edge of the driver's door for the carmakers recommendations.
