Reminder to truck owners in colder climates!

Just a little reminder check your tire pressure as the temperature gets colder!

This is a good way to get worse mpg and bad wear and tear on your tires.

I just checked mine and was 6-8lbs lower than usual...

First time the temp dipped below freezing last night since winter ended. Maybe it will actually snow this year.

we hit down to 34 last week, with the recent weekly highs ranging from around mid-60s to low 80s. Tires were ranging from 5-10 psi lower than what I keep for city/hwy driving (32-35 psi)

Oh and btw, Don't forget the pressure in your spare tire.
