What’s Your PSI?

How would you like to save 10 cents or more per gallon every time you fill up? You can by simply keeping your tires properly inflated.

According to the Department of Energy, consumers waste nearly 4 million gallons of gas per day with underinflated tires.

In fact, some manufacturers advise that just 5 PSI below the recommendation could reduce the life of the tire by 25%.

Here are 5 things you can do to save money on tires and gas.

1. Check the owners manual or on the drivers side door jam for the recommend PSI (Pounds per Square Inch) and keep it at that level.

2. Check the tire pressure at least once a month as tires are known to lose 1 to 2 PSI per month.

3. Have a qualified technician balance your tires and check the alignment when you purchasing them new.

4. Register your tires with the manufacturer by mail or online to keep updated.

5. Check to see if there is a recall on your tires at www.safercar.gov.
