If you’re new to working on cars knowing how to check the proper air pressure is a great way to start. It doesn’t require any expensive special tools. Heck, most gas stations even have an air pump which is hopefully free. Some will have a pressure gauge attached and some won’t so it is a good idea to at least have a small analog gauge in your car such as our Fairmount Gauge. If you have your own compressor and would like a digital version for even more accurate readings you’ll want to check out our Digital Tire Pressure Gauge.
