As you turn back your clocks this weekend, the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers wants to remind drivers that it is also a good time to check your tire pressure.
Fall's weather already makes for challenging driving, but when a car's tires are under-inflated, it can compromise the vehicle's safety and fuel efficiency. Temperature change is one external factor that can have an impact on a vehicle's tire pressure. Tire pressure is measured by pounds per square inch (PSI) and for every 10-degree change in temperature; a tire can lose about one PSI.
