Tire pressure goes up and down with the change in seasons. Hot temperatures during the summer makes the air in your tires expand, causing the PSI to go up. Cooler temperatures in the winter makes the PSI go down due to the air contracting inside your tires. For every 10 degree difference (Fahrenheit), your tire pressure goes up or down 1 to 2 PSI. It's always important to know the recommended PSI for your tires and keep a close eye on them to make sure you have a safe trip!
