The Meineke Car Care Center on East Chocolate Avenue in Hershey will help you if your tires need care, repair, or replacement.

You were headed to Hershey Gardens this morning when you got in your car, turned it on and noticed your tire light had come on. You  got out and eyeballed your tires, which look okay, but you're not quite sure whether to find a tire expert to help or if you can simply ignore the light.

You definitely don't want to ignore the light. Your better bet is to test the tire pressure in all your tires.

"Tires that are not inflated properly may wear excessively, which is one of the reasons it's important to know how and when to check your tire pressure. says tires with the incorrect pressure may lead to lower gas mileage and negatively impact your car's handling," according to

Checking tire pressure isn't hard. explains how: "Your vehicle's recommended tire pressure can typically be found on a sticker inside the driver's door. It's also usually listed in the owner's manual ... Tire pressure is measured in pounds per square inch (psi). ...

  • "You will need a tire pressure gauge, which you can find at most service stations or auto parts stores. ... you should check the pressure when the tires are cold, as the friction from driving causes them to heat up and affects the pressure. ...
  • "Once you have a tire gauge in hand, ... this is how to check your tire pressure.
  • "Remove the cap from the air valve on the tire, and put it somewhere you won't lose it.
  • "Press the tire gauge against the open valve stem for a second or two. It's normal to hear a hiss of air.
  • "Read the air pressure gauge. For manual gauges, a dial points to the pressure or a bar indicates the pressure by how far it was pushed out. The pressure will appear onscreen on a digital tire gauge.
  • "Compare this number with the recommended tire pressure.
  • "Replace the tire's air valve cap. (Hold off on this step if you need to adjust the air pressure.)
  • "Repeat this process for each tire."

If you find a tire that's over-inflated, you can let some air out. It one or more tires are under-inflated, it's time to add some air. Or you could visit a tire care center like the Meineke Car Care Center on East Chocolate in Hershey's to have an expert tell you if there's a leak or something else that needs attention.
