Full Answer

Use a pressure gauge to determine existing pressure and check periodically as the tire is being filled with air. The correct tire pressure for a vehicle should be listed on a tire placard posted on the door edge, door post, fuel door or glove box. The information may also be found in the owner's manual. Pressure can be lost during both cool and warm conditions, making it important to check tire pressure regularly. Proper tire inflation can increase the life of tires, while enhancing fuel economy.

    Can you put different size tires on a car?

    A:
