Have you checked your tires’ air pressure this winter?

Tire pressure is often over-looked, but it’s a rather important task to remember. Your tires are there to support the weight of your vehicle. Both drivers and passengers rely on their durability for a smooth ride. It only takes a few minutes to monitor all four tires, and it pays off by keeping you safe and keeping your car at its best handling capability.
Your tires should be checked periodically. Just because you checked your tires last month, doesn’t mean it’s set and hasn’t changed. Time, temperature, and road trips all affect the air pressure in your tires. Also, you never know when you might find a slow leak that needs your attention.
The best time to check your tires is in the morning, before you start to drive and before the rising temperature could affect your reading. The air in your tires expands when heated and causes pressure to rise. When cooled, it contracts causing loss in air pressure. Be sure to reference your vehicle’s owner’s manual to be sure you are setting the right air pressure.
Fall and winter months are the most critical times to check your tires since the air temperatures are cooler and your tires’ inflation could be severely low. You may estimate that for every 10 degree Fahrenheit change in temperature, the tire pressure will change about 2%. It will go up with warm temperature, and down with colder weather.
We hope you find this information helpful. The next time you are at the gas station with a convenient air pump, take a moment to check your tires and fill them if necessary. Safe travels this winter! Remember that if you are in need of new or used tires, come to Aero Auto Parts, 6339 S. Wentworth Ave. Chicago, IL. We carry parts for all makes and models of cars and trucks.

I got my windshield replaced recently and it took less than an hour. Then as I was driving home the rear view mirror fell off. It kept doing it so I rode back and they replaced it. No haggling or anything. With this kind of service I will keep coming back. I am a repeat customer as they do not dissapoint!

Decent prices on the parts you need. Honest and informative workers. Reasonable and efficient service. They’re also pretty well stocked and will likely have the part you need for just about any replacement or repair. If not, they’ll order it for you and usually have it in a day or so. Overall, no real complaints on my end. I’d recommend this place.
