Why is tire pressure important in your Mazda6?
Making sure your tires are inflated to the appropriate level is important to the overall health of your Mazda. If your tires are underinflated, you can wear out your outer tread faster as well as put more stress on your suspension, making it more difficult to control your vehicle. On the flip side, if your tires are overinflated, you can wear out your inner tread faster and they are more likely to pop. Both extremes shorten your tire lifespan and cause you more money and stress.
Tire pressure is calculated using a measurement called pounds per square inch (PSI). PSI is based on your vehicle’s weight and size, towing capacity and recommended tire size. The most accurate readings for tire pressure are done when your tires are cold or haven’t been driven in several hours. It is important to check your tire pressure when any large changes in temperature occur, especially when temperatures rise.
How do I check the tire pressure in my Mazda6?
In the 2017 Mazda6, the recommend tire pressure for both front and rear tires is 36 PSI. To check your tire pressure and inflate your tires, you can follow these steps below:
- Remove the end caps on your tires’ air valves and put in a safe place
- Place the tire pressure gauge into the valve stem and press down to get a reading
- Compare the valve reading to your Mazda6 recommended tire pressure of 36 PSI
- If the reading is above the recommended level, put 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
- Replace the end caps on your tires’ air valves
