Tips to ensure proper tire inflation during the winter:

Keeping your car’s tires properly inflated to the automaker’s recommended pressures is a critical element of tire maintenance. Tires that contain the specified amount of air pressure last longer and contribute to vehicle safety. 

  • For every 10 degrees the temperature drops tires can lose a pound of pressure.
  • Check tire pressures regularly. Once a week is best, but no less than once a month and always before any long road trip, including the spare.
  • Follow the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended inflation pressures and not the pressure molded into the tire sidewall.
  • The recommended inflation pressures for the tires can be found in the vehicle’s owner’s manual or on the tire information decal attached to the driver’s door jamb. On older cars the decal may be in the glove box or inside the fuel filler door. 

 

About The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation

Toys for Tots, a 69 year national charitable program run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, provides happiness and hope to economically disadvantaged children during each Christmas holiday season.  The toys, books and other gifts collected and distributed by the Marines offer these children recognition, confidence and a positive memory for a lifetime.  It is such experiences that help children become responsible citizens and caring members of their community.  Last year the Marine Corps fulfilled the holiday hopes and dreams of nearly 7 million less fortunate children in over 790 communities nationwide.  Visit www.toysfortots.org.
