Tire Pressure Guidebook

Jaguar tire pressure guide tire service in Albuquerque

So you start your car, truck, or SUV and notice that your tire pressure warning light flashing on the dashboard and that’s when you wish you had a tire pressure guide, right? Most of us recognize how easy it is to ignore this alert as a result of the frustration with locating a service station with a working air compressor to inflate your tires. But the truth is, that headache pales in comparison to a blow-out on the highway because you chose to ignore the indicator! There are a lot of reasons for low tire pressure: climate condition changes, regular 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 certain just how to tackle checking your tire pressure, do not worry. Jaguar Albuquerque is here to help with this handy tire pressure guide.


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, glove box 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 Read Tire Pressure

Your first step in measuring your tire’s air pressure is to make certain the tires are “cold” meaning they have not been driven on for about an hour. This will provide you with the most accurate PSI (Pounds Per Square Inch) measurement.

Second, find the manufacturer’s suggested PSI. This can be located in the owner’s manual or stamped inside the driver’s side door. Write down the PSI requirements and head to your nearest air compressor. You can normally locate one at most car washes, gas stations, or tire shops. A single use will probably cost about $0.50 to $2.00.

Third, check the tire pressure with a pressure 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 final time and you’re ready to roll!


When To Adjust Tire Pressure

The most effective routine is to check your tire pressure every month. In most modern cars, trucks, and SUVs, you can scan the control panel settings for a digital reading of the PSI for all the tires. The computer-generated estimate, sometimes, can become slightly off. Therefore, the most effective method is to use a PSI gauge.

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


Why Find Tire Pressure

maintaining your car, truck, or SUV’s tires is crucial for automotive performance, safety, and fuel economy. It’s what keeps your car rolling. A flat tire or a blowout when driving is not just a challenge to deal with but it’s also potentially dangerous if there is not an emergency lane conveniently available. Treat your car to some TLC and it will take care of you for many smooth riding journeys to come.


Schedule a Tire Inspection

Are you worried about your tire pressure, but not sure what to do? Don’t worry. Our factory-trained Jaguar specialists are standing by. Drop by our service center today and allow us to have a look at your wheels. Don’t wait. The best way to handle low tire pressure is always to assess and fix it early, when there is still air in your tire.

I needed my annual service on my 2018 Jaguar XE (a wonderful automobile) and this company treated me very well. Scheduling was convenient, they provided a loaner car, and completed all the work before I expected. My car came back clean and ready for another year of enjoyable driving. Also, John and Andrew, the service advisors, answered all my questions thoroughly. Thank you, Jaguar Albuquerque.

Due to COVID-19, I was forced to start my purchase online and could not have had a better experience, due to the no haggle pricing and attention to detail that Danny @ Albuquerque JLR provided.

Aside from not all staff wearing masks and the car not appearing to have been sanitized after service, I’m satisfied with the work. Having the car interior sanitized and certified would have been good considering current conditions.

Rachel in sales was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. We never felt pressured, and they were able to work with our credit union. Overall a good buying experience except for the 20th-century negotiation part. I wish all car dealerships would get on board with no-haggle pricing! Recommendation? Well it's not like you have a choice if you're looking for a new Jag in Albuquerque -- but apart from the haggling, they're a great dealership.
