The New Orleans auto care gurus at Twin Tire can help when your tire pressure is too low or when you have a flat tire.
You were driving home last night when you noticed that your tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) light was on. You looked at your tires when you got home but everything looked fine. Now you’re wondering if you should get the New Orleans auto care pros at Twin Tire Auto Care to look at it or if it's safe to go ahead to the Tremé Fall Festival as you'd planned.
The TPMS light doesn’t mean you have a flat tire. It means that the pressure in your tires is too low. (It can also come on if the pressure is too high.) If you don’t get air in the tire, you could be headed to a flat tire. And, you probably want to find out why the tire pressure is low – is there a slow leak? Do you have a nail or other object in the tire? Do you need new tires?
The wisest course is to drop by Twin Tire. As yourmechanic.com says, “If the tire pressure is too low, it can cause unsafe driving conditions. Low tire pressure can also cause the tires to wear prematurely, and lead to tire failure. If the tire fails, this could lead to a blowout causing you to potentially lose control of the vehicle.”
Yourmechanic recommends that, when the TPMS light comes on, you have the tire pressure checked. If it is low, at the very least add air until it’s at the right pressure. But you should also take a few extra minutes to check out the tire itself.
The New Orleans auto care and auto repair experts at Twin Tire can help you with that. If your tire needs fixing, that’s no problem. If you need a new tire, that’s also easily handled. Twin Tire carries all brands, sizes and style of tire to fit any vehicle or driving need.
