Proper air pressure is significant at all times of the year. As winter rapidly approaches, your tires will last longer; give you more control while driving; and help to realize better gas mileage when you make sure to check the air pressure. This extra effort will also help you avoid dangerous blowouts.
Tire pressure is directly related to the outside temperature. For every 10-degree change in temperature, tire pressure changes by 1 pound per square inch (PSI). This means that as the temperatures decreases, tire pressure does as well.
This makes fall and early winter months the most crucial times to check tire pressure.
If you are traveling this year, consider checking your tire pressure on both your truck and trailer tires monthly. If you are traveling long distances, you may want to check the tire pressure before you depart. Keep in mind, tire pressure needs to be checked when the tires are cold prior to beginning your travels. As the weather warms and cools, your tires pressure can fluctuate.
