Acquire a tire pressure gauge. The tires should be cold before checking. The term cold does not relate to the current outside temperature. Rather, a cold tire is one that has not been driven on for at least three hours. When you drive, friction between the road and tire make your tires get warmer, causing the air pressure (psi) within them to increase. Your tires can get warm after just 1 mile of driving.
Locate the recommended tire pressure (psi) on the vehicles tire information sticker located in the door jamb, glove box or trunk / spare tire area. If not found in these areas, check your owner's manual.
Check the tire pressure of all the tires, including your spare tire.
If the tire pressure is too high in any of the tires, slowly release air pressure by gently pressing on the tire valve stem with the edge of your tire gauge until you get to the correct pressure.
If the tire pressure is too low, correct the difference between the measured tire pressure and the recommended factory tire pressure by adding air.
