Why is tire pressure important in your Mazda CX-9?

Ensuring your tires are inflated to the correct level is important for the overall health of your vehicle. If your tires are underinflated, you can wear out your outer tread faster, as well as put more strain on your suspension and make it more difficult to control your vehicle. If your tires are overinflated, they are more likely to pop, and you wear out your inner tread faster. Both under and over inflating your tires shortens their lifespan, causing you more money and stress.

Tire pressure is calculated using a measurement called pounds per square inch, or PSI. PSI is based on your vehicle’s weight and size, towing capacity, and recommended tire size. The more accurate readings for tire pressure occur when your tires are cold or haven’t been driven in several hours. It is important to check your tire pressure when there are changes in temperature, especially when temperatures rise.

What is the recommended tire pressure in my CX-9 and how do I check it?

In the 2017 Mazda CX-9, the recommended tire pressure for front and rear tires is 34 PSI. To check your tire pressure and properly inflate your tires, follow these easy steps! Note: you will need to visit a local gas station or invest in a tire pressure gauge to check your tire pressure.

  1. Remove the end caps on your tires’ air valves and put in a safe place.
  2. Place the tire pressure gauge into the valve stem and press down to get a reading.
  3. Compare the valve reading to your CX-9 recommended tire pressure of 34 PSI.
    • If the reading is above the recommended level, push in the valve to let out some air.
    • If the reading is below the recommended level, fill your tire with air until you reach the appropriate reading.
  4. Replace the end caps on your tires’ air valves.
