Just as ignoring high pressure can be dangerous for your body, so can your tire pressure for your vehicle! Without symptoms, one needs to check blood pressure and tire pressure often, particularly with changes in temperature.
As the temperature drops, the air temperature inside your tires does, too. For every 10 degrees Fahrenheit the temperature drops, your tires can lose about 1 pound per square inch (PSI) of pressure. Since it is generally recommended to keep your tires within 5 PSI of the recommended pressure, it becomes more important in winter to check your tires regularly.
