How to maintain your tires:
When attempting a DIY project on your Georgia Ford tires, refer to your vehicle’s owners manual for the proper level of inflation. This information may also be posted the door post of your Atlanta Ford or Atlanta Lincoln, or they could be in the glove compartment. When checking your tires’ air pressure, make sure the tires are cool. In other words, they should not be warm at all from driving. (Note: If you must drive a distance to reach an air compressor, check and record the tire pressure first and then add the appropriate air. Schedule service pressure when you get to the pump. It is normal for tires to heat up and the air pressure inside to go up as you drive. Never “bleed” or reduce air pressure when tires are hot.)
Remove the cap from the tire valve, firmly press a tire gauge onto the valve and note the reading.
Add air to achieve recommended air pressure.
If you overfill the tire, you can release air by pushing on the metal stem in the center of the valve with a fingernail or the tip of a pen. Then recheck the pressure with your tire gauge. The proper pressure in your Georgia Ford or Georgia Lincoln tires is paramount for the safety of your vehicle and your vehicle’s passengers.
Replace the valve cap.
Repeat with each tire, including the spare. (Note: Some spare tires require higher inflation pressure.) Check tire sidewall for recommended PSI.
