Tire Pressure Guidebook for Porsche


Porsche tire pressure guide tire service El Paso, TX

So you start your car and notice that your tire pressure light flashing on the indicator panel and that’s when you wish you had a tire pressure guidebook, right? The majority of us acknowledge how simple it is to disregard this alert as a result of the frustration with locating a gas station with a working air compressor to inflate your tires. However the reality is, that headache pales in comparison to a blow-out on the freeway because you decided to ignore the warning! There are plenty of reasons for reduced tire pressure: weather condition changes, normal wear and tear, or a slow leak in your tire. Whatever the reason might be, it is vital to get it checked out right now. But, if you aren’t sure exactly how to tackle checking your tire pressure, don’t stress. Porsche El Paso is here to help with this helpful tire pressure handbook.


What is Tire Pressure?

“Cold inflation pressure is the inflation pressure of tires before the car is driven and the tires warmed up. Recommended cold inflation pressure is displayed on the owner’s manual and on the placard (or sticker) attached to the vehicle door edge, pillar, glovebox door or fuel filler flap. Drivers are encouraged to make sure their tires are adequately inflated, as suboptimal tire pressure can greatly reduce fuel economy, increase emissions, increased wear on the edges of the tire surface, and can lead to premature failure of the tire. Excessive pressure, on the other hand, may lead to impact-breaks, decrease braking performance, and cause uneven wear (i.e., greater wear on the center part of the tire surface).”

How To Gauge Tire Pressure

The first thing you’ll want to do in checking your tire’s air pressure is to make certain the tires are “cold” meaning they have not been driven on for about one hour. This will provide you with the most accurate PSI (Pounds Per Square Inch) reading.

Second, locate the auto maker’s suggested PSI. This can be located in the owner’s manual or stamped inside the driver’s side door. Make a note of the PSI requirements and head to your nearest air pump. You can normally locate one at most car washes, tire shops, or gas stations. A one-time use will probably cost about $0.50 to $2.00.

Third, check the tire pressure with a PSI gauge. These gauges can be found at any retail store’s automotive department, an auto parts store, or in some cases they are available on the air pumps themselves. Simply fill the tire or tires to the specified PSI level then check the PSI one last time and you’re ready to roll!


When To Read Tire Pressure

The best routine is to check your tire pressure monthly. In many modern vehicles, you can flip through the dashboard settings for a computer measurement of the PSI on all tires. The computer-generated estimate, sometimes, can become slightly off. Therefore, the most effective method is to use an air gauge.

Cooler climates can impact PSI too. According to Goodyear, for every 10 degrees the temperature drops, your tire pressure can decrease by 1-2 pounds and vice versa for temperature increases.


Why Measure Tire Pressure

Taking care of your car’s tires is essential for automotive performance, safety, and fuel economy. It is what literally keeps your car moving. A flat tire or a blowout when driving is not only a headache to deal with but it’s also very dangerous if there is not an emergency lane conveniently available. Treat your car to some tender loving care and it will take care of you for many smooth riding journeys to come.
