Maintaining the correct tire pressure is crucial not only for your safety on the road but also for ensuring you are getting the most out of your INFINITI model. Especially in the Mobile area, where temperatures fluctuate between 30 and 40 degrees throughout Autumn days, you may be noticing that your TPMS light illuminates in the morning and turns off by the afternoon. This will normally let you know that a tire is on the borderline of complying with the factory recommended inflation level.

Do I Need to Aid Air to My Tires if The Temperature Drops?

For every 10 degrees of temperature change, you gain or lose 1 pound of pressure in your tires, which can make it difficult to consistently maintain the correct levels. If you notice your TPMS light constantly illuminated, it is definitely time to fill up your tires, but it is important to remember that this may just be a result of ranging temperatures. The TPMS light is the light that looks like a part of a tire, with an exclamation point on it.

One solution suggested by our expert technicians at our Mobile service center is filling your tires with nitrogen, which does not leak as easily from the rubber confines of your tires and eliminates pressure variation. Correct tire pressure, in general, helps to maintain even tread wear on all of your tires, as well as to help you optimize your fuel economy. Nitrogen can stretch your mileage even further, as well as improving your car’s handling and performance by stabilizing tire pressure. If you don’t have time to regularly check your tire pressure, nitrogen can be a helpful and convenient alternative!

Finding The Correct Tire Pressure

You won’t be able to tell that a tire is underinflated just by looking at it, so if your tires look low to the naked eye, you’ll want to be sure you check your pressure ASAP.

You can check on the inside door jamb to find the recommended pressure, which is measured in pounds per square inch, or psi. Be sure not to confuse this with the number listed on the tire itself, as this is the maximum pressure the tire can hold, not the recommended pressure for everyday use. You can use a simple tire pressure gauge to compare the current psi of your tires with the recommended value.
