Temperatures are starting to drop in Reno-Tahoe. It’s time to whip out the scarves, go 4-wheeling in some mud, and of course drink your pumpkin-spiced latte’s – guys, we know you love them too! This season is also the time to keep an eye out for your TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System ) lights on the dash board of your vehicle.
Snow-covered road, the marks of wheels
When the temperatures start to drop and its chilly out in the mornings, the air in your tires condenses and the pressure can decrease enough to tell the light to go on. Usually, you will notices that as the day warms up, the light will go off again – the heat allows the pressure to increase in your tires again.
This is the best time of year to come into Levrett and/or Allen’s Automotive. Our professional will make sure to do a thorough check of all your tires, we will check to see how evenly all your tires are wearing, how much tread you have left on all four tires and then, most importantly, make sure to air them up to the proper pressure.
Going into winter – which yes will be here in the blink of an eye – is the most important time of year to make sure your tires are in good shape. As soon the the rain and snow comes, you will want to make sure you have proper pressure in your tires, adequate tread. and have the best tires for traveling in winter conditions.
