The Chrysler Sebring comes in sedan, coupe and convertible models. If you own a Sebring, it is important to check the tire pressure, especially before long trips. Doing so requires an instrument called a tire gauge and a few minutes of your time.
Things You'll Need
- Tire gauge
Let your tires cool down. Checking your tire pressure in your Sebring immediately after use will give you an inaccurate reading. Wait a 1/2 hour for your tires to cool off, so you can get an accurate tire air pressure reading.
Determine what the tire pressure should be. Chrysler recommends 28 to 34 psi on a 2008 Sebring. If it won't be transporting much weight, you should err on the light side of that range. If you will have a full car, you should err on the heavy side.
Insert the tire gauge. Remove the cap from the air valve on your first tire and press your tire gauge onto the valve. A standard tire gauge will pop the measuring device out, giving you the reading.
Look at the number to see what your air pressure is. If it is too low, use a tire pump to add more air to your tires and check the pressure again to make sure you have added enough.
Repeat these steps on the other three tires and the spare.
Tips & Warnings
- The 2008 Sebring models come manufactured with the tires P215/60R17 95T. This means that each tire can bear the 1,521 lbs. of weight.
- Because of the soft tops on the Sebring convertible, you want to be especially cautious to prevent accidents. Check your tire pressure frequently to prevent any problems that could occur by having low tire pressure in your Chrysler Sebring.
