In the winter, you may have a list of regular services you perform on your car. You might switch to winter tires, or you may stock your car with chains. But one safety step many people fail to take is regularly ensuring their tire pressure is within a safe range.
In cold winter weather, the air in your car’s tires contracts—causing the tire pressure to drop. For every 10 degrees the air temperature drops, your tires lose an average of two pounds of pressure per square inch (PSI). Low PSI can create serious safety risks on the road.
