How does one?


Everyone states that tire pressure be checked cold. Now my question is, if I check at home I do not have a compressor to fill the tire. I must drive about 1 miles to the closet gas station to fill the tires with air. Which, by that time, the tire is no loner cold.

Therefore, my question is, if I check my tire at home cold. And I see that I need 2 lbs more, when I get to the station do I retake teh reading and add two more pounds?

How does one really do this?

Thanks, Iggy
