Tired of Cold Weather | New Orleans Auto Care

When your New Orleans tires need repair or replacement, consult the New Orleans auto care tire pros at Twin Tire.

Few things are more irritating than being ready to go somewhere - like the Pelicans game  - and finding you have a flat tire.  That's a scenario that the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) light on your dash is supposed to prevent. The light warns you when one or more tires is low.

The problem with that is that many people tend to ignore the warning light with sad results. And, others see the light, then glance at the tires and think they "look" okay so they put off checking on the tires until it's too late. Still other drivers get frustrated because, in cold weather, the TPMS light may seem to come on more often.

That's not necessarily your imagination because, as Consumer Reports explains, "dropping temperatures ... cause the air to become denser and consequently lower the tire pressure."

But just because a lower tire pressure may be expected in cold weather, that doesn't mean you can ignore the warning. After all, your might have a leak or puncture. And, tires do lose pressure over time. Driving on under-inflated tires is not good. It just makes your tires wear out faster and can contribute to blowouts.

So, you should always have your tires checked out when the TPMS light comes on. Or, better yet, have the pressure checked once a month.
