How Often Do You Check Your Tire Pressure?

When it comes to knowledge about proper tire inflation, a new survey revealing some of our tanks are running pretty low. 

While 99-percent of us here in Atlantic Canada are aware of the importance of tire inflation, Carolyn Goard of the Rubber Association of Canada tells CHSJ News 59-percent of drivers in the Maritimes do not measure their tire pressure monthly which is alarming because they like to encourage people to test their pressure biweekly at least.

The report also showing nearly a third of us incorrectly inflate our tires to the air pressure stamped on the side of the tire which actually indicates the maximum inflation pressure and that 69-percent don't know tire pressure should only be measured when the wheels are cold.
