How often do you check your car tyre pressure?

Its often with me that I feel the pressure is quiet low and then I turn my wheels to the nearest petrol station and get the fill of pressure air. Its very dangerous to drive with low pressure as it could lead to imbalance. Do you get pressure checked?

well, when ever i fill the tank of my car from the petrol pump i check the tire pressure of my car. it's not like i only check it when my tank is empty but also when i feel that my handle is a bit heavy and i feel a need to check the pressure i go to the pump and get my tire pressure checked.

I usually do this every one and half to two months; sooner if I feel that the tires lack pressure. I would notice this when the steering feels tighter (not so easy to turn).

Hi dhawanbm, I'm lucky enough to live in a place where the garages still check the tyre pressures if you need it so I generally have them checked before I start to drive into the next town as the road is quite dangerous. Even though I had them checked three days ago the car was skidding a bit on the road yesterday, I presumed it was because the road was just so hot but a friend told me that possibly the garage had put too much pressure into the tyres, thus causing a problem.

I don't do this. What should the pressure be? I think I should get mine checked. Do you check it each month? Thanks for the tip!
