How Often Should You Actually Check Your Car’s Tire Pressure?

If people want to keep up with their self-appointed monthly inspections, they will need to arm themselves with a tire pressure gauge. The most reliable options available for purchase have a span that measures from 5 to 99 psi, so anything within those parameters would be a solid choice.

The most commonly used is the stick type, which is also generally the cheapest. Also referred to as the plunge or pencil type, it easily fits in the glove compartment or a pocket and looks like a ballpoint pen. If you are willing to spend a bit more, a dial gauge shows the reading more clearly thanks to a display that resembles a speedometer. It uses a needle to gather the reading and can come with additional features, but it is bigger than the stick version and requires more storage space. Last is the digital type, which has an LCD electronic screen, making it the easiest to read, but requires batteries to work, which the others don’t.

After choosing the right one, it’s always wise to maintain and secure the pressure measuring tool in order to ensure it lasts as long as possible. Any of the models described can be found at auto part stores like AutoZone, hardware shops like Home Depot, or even big box retail outlets like Walmart. Once a fitting gauge is secured, the process of checking the tire pressure once a month can commence, and it won’t take long to witness the many benefits of keeping the wheels under pressure.
