Because proper tire pressure is an integral aspect of your vehicle’s reliability, many cars now come equipped with a tire-pressure monitoring system (TPMS). But these systems are not 100% accurate. Most are designed to indicate low tire pressure; they don’t register over inflation or other problems. At any given time, only about 60% of vehicles with TPMS have properly inflated tires. To ensure ideal inflation, check your tire pressure regularly, especially in cold weather when leaks are more likely to occur.
