Owners of tire shops knew that tires can easily get deflated as soon as fall comes. This is because the outside temperature has some impact on tire pressure. When the temperature is high, gas particles tend to move freely and swiftly causing the tire air pressure to go up. However, when the temperature cools down, these particles move very slowly causing a drop in the tire’s inflation. Know more about this situation through this infographic.
- The air pressure of the tire can go low for about 1-2 psi for every 10 degrees change (low) in the temperature.
- However, whenever you drive the car, it is warmed up that can increase the air pressure for 1psi for every five minutes in the first 15-20 minutes of your travel time.
