If you're like me, you need a hand keeping track of all the things you have to get done each month: Post-It notes, to-do lists, a string around the finger! They all help.
That's why we came up with this slogan: Check 5 on the 1st. We hope it'll remind you to check the air pressure in all four of your tires PLUS the spare on the first day of each month. If you'd prefer, just pull into any Mountain View Tire location and we'll check and fill your tires for you - absolutely free! No appointment necessary.
Over the course of a month, your tires can easily lose a pound or two of pressure, even if there's nothing wrong with your tires. After only a few months, that slow "natural" leak can result in seriously underinflated tires. That's why it's so important to have your tires checked at least once per month.
Low tire pressure increases rolling resistance. That means your engine has to work harder to move your car down the road. The harder your engine works, the lower your gas mileage. Underinflated tires wear out faster too. They also affect your vehicle's handling, making steering and cornering more difficult.
So do yourself, your tires, and your environment a favor: Check 5 on the 1st to help maximize your fuel economy, the performance of your vehicle, and the service life of your tires. And spread the word: tell your friends and family members to check their own 5 on the 1st.
