When the tire pressure monitoring system (commonly known as TPMS) light comes on, it’s most likely time to add some air to your tires. You can find the correct tire pressure (or PSI) in your car’s manual or in your doorjamb. It’s important to check your manufacturer’s recommendations before adding air as under or over-inflated tires can cause unnecessary wear and tear on your tires or poor fuel economy.

How to Check your Tire PSI

Commonly known as Tire Pressure, PSI stands for "per square inch" , and is the standard method for measuring a tire's air pressure level. PSI is measured by the notches on a standard tire pressure gauge or with a number reading on digital gauges. By placing the gauge on the uncapped valve stem, you should get an instantaneous reading.
