Alright in this clip we are going to teach you how to determine your proper tire inflation as per the manufacturer and as well as how to properly inflate your tires. First and foremost to determine what your proper tire inflation is determined by your manufacturer you are going to want to open your driver's door and on most vehicles you are going to find a small sticker on the inside of the driver's door panel that tells you exactly what your tire pressure should be front and rear. Once you know that go to your local gas station or your local service garage, most places will have compressed air like this. Just pull the air chuck out, secure it to the ground so it doesn't run away from you, take the valve stem cap away and you are going to want to get a good idea about how much air pressure you are going to put in so get yourself a decent tire pressure gage. Check the tire pressure first, see it's a couple of pounds low. You are going to want to add air. Just secure the nozzle on and you will also notice that this air chuck has a pressure gage built into it, not all of them are super accurate which is why it is a good idea to have your own tire pressure gage you can trust as well. Just push down the handle and you are going to be adding air every time you push down the handle so push down the handle and when you release it you are going to notice that this gage is going to get longer and longer indicating more and more pressure being built in the tire. Once you think that that is built right to the pressure you are going to want it at let go and just double check it with your own tire pressure gage again. It looks like we are spot on.
