    • Your car's tire pressure information is likely located inside the car door frame toward the bottom.

    • You can also look up this information in your vehicle's owner's manual.

    • Do not refer to the tire pressure information printed on the tire itself! This displays the maximum tire pressure allowed, rather than the recommended amount.

    • Each tire has a valve stem located on the outer part of the wheel that sticks out.

    • Remove the cap by unscrewing it counter-clockwise and set it off to the side.

    • The cap is very small, so be sure to keep track of it!

    • Place the stem of the tire pressure gauge onto the tire's valve stem and push on it with a decent amount of force.

    • You'll hear a brief hissing noise as the valve stem quickly opens and closes. If the noise continues, you likely aren't pressing down hard enough.

    • After a second or two, remove the tire pressure gauge. Again, you'll hear a brief hissing noise.

    • Check the gauge to see what the tire pressure is. If it's low, add air to the tire until the gauge reads the proper tire pressure.

    • To reset the gauge to zero, press down on the gauge's bleeder valve.
