Adding Air to Tires, Going Step-by-Step

Even if you’re a Blackfoot or Pocatello driver who’s new to adjusting your tire pressure on your own, it isn’t too hard to adjust car tire pressure with a guide handy. Here’s how you do it:

  • Pull up to the air machine at your local gas station.
  • Make sure you can reach all four tires with the air hose.
  • Take the cap off the tire valve on the first tire.
  • Use your tire gauge to check the air pressure inside the tire.
  • Repeat this process for the other three tires.

You’ll want to know that the air hose gauges at many gas stations aren’t the most reliable. This is often because driving causes the tires to heat and the insides to expand. This means your tire pressure will go up. Above all, don’t overinflate the tire! Use the air hose to put air in in short bursts and make sure you only top up what was lost before visiting the dispenser.

How Much Air Should I Put in My Tires?

You’ll find the recommended tire pressure for your vehicle on a sticker inside the driver’s door for CDJR vehicles. If you can’t find it, it’s a good idea to check your Rexburg vehicle’s owner’s manual. Generally, you’ll want 32 to 35 psi (pounds per square inch) your tires are cold. Checking the tire pressure after the car is cooled off is your best move.
