Under Pressure: Tires

Categories: Tags:

Winter weather affects your car in lots of costly and frustrating ways. Obviously, cold temperatures make it more difficult to start your car. Your car’s battery can be negatively impacted by the cold weather and the stress it places on that battery to fire up each time you start your car. There’s another issue that cold weather can cause, and it doesn’t get as much thought or attention as it should–your tire pressure.

Temperature changes–heat and cold–cause changes to the tire pressure for your car’s tires. Hot weather causes your tires to expand. In fact, for every 10 degrees Fahrenheit increase in temperature, your car’s tires to increase by 1-2 pounds of pressure. In the winter, it’s the opposite. In the winter, cold temperatures cause your tires to lose PSI. In the winter, you can expect your tires to lose one PSI per a 10-degree drop in temperature. In St. Louis, that drop can be pretty steep.

Make sure you check your tires’ PSI regularly, especially when there’s a big drop or increase in temperatures. Driving on underinflated or overinflated tires not only reduces tread life, but it also affects your safety. Make sure your tires are properly inflated and check for treadwear. Drive safely.

St. Louis car stereo installation.

Car stereos and sound systems have come a long way. Today’s car stereos do a lot more than just pick up AM or FM radio stations, they also now work with streaming services, iTunes, Spotify, and other devices including BlueTooth. That’s the good news.

The bad news is that installing a new car stereo can be a challenge even for DIY folks that enjoy tinkering. Removing the old unit can be a laborious task fraught with frustration and the possibility of damaging your dash, wiring and auto’s interior. Moreover, if you purchase a new, feature-filled car stereo, the waiting list for installation at major retailers like Best Buy, is currently as much as six to eight weeks! If you’re eager to start enjoying your great new car audio system and all its amazing features, and not wait for months to get it professionally installed, Cyclone Car Care, your trusted St. Louis auto repair specialists, can help.

Because each system and project is different, we offer free, accurate estimates and ensure that you can start enjoying your new car audio system this week, not two months from now.
