Avoiding a Tire Blowout by Checking Tire Pressure

The tire pressure indicator lights warn drivers if the pressure has dropped out of the recommended ranges in any of the car's tires. Here are a few of the things that could be causing the pressure light to come on in the vehicle.

Some of the things that you shouldn't be too concerned with is when the temperature drops every ten degrees. As this happens, the air in the tires drops by a pound, so it can trip the pressure indicators. Another thing to consider is that air is escaping from the tires naturally at a pound a month.

Take a closer look at the tire tread and you may discover other reasons for the indicator coming on. An obstruction in the tire is something to leave alone and let a tire technician diagnose or it could cause a blowout.
