Check your tire pressure

By  | 

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - If your car has a tire pressure alert, it may go off Friday night or Saturday morning.

Friday night’s lows will be the coldest since early April! For every 10 degrees of temperature drop, the tire pressure falls roughly one pound per square inch (PSI). While this may not seem like much, it may be enough to trip the sensor and turn on that light. That light is there to let the driver know one or more tires are not at proper pressure.

Under-inflated tires can lead to poorer handling, longer braking, and lower fuel economy.
