If one or more of the tires on your vehicle loses pressure, you should pull into a nearby service station to add air to the low tire(s). You will find vehicle information labels in the door jam and owner's manual with the manufacturer's recommended tire pressure. You can often find this information stamped into the wall of the tires themselves.
The Nissan easy-fill system alerts you when you have added the correct amount of air to the tires, so you don't need to worry about over-inflating or have to deal with the hassle of tire gauges.
The majority of vehicles enjoying the roads of New Orleans are either front-wheel-drive or rear-wheel-drive. This means that, depending on the drivetrain that propels your Nissan, the tires connected to your drivetrain will wear faster than the other two. Regular tire rotations and proper wheel alignment will help ensure the tires on your Nissan wear evenly, which maximizes the lifespan of your investment.
The Penny Test is a common way to measure tire tread depth and is a good tread wear indicator. Insert a penny into the grooves of the tire you wish to measure with Lincoln's head upside down and facing you. If you can see all of Lincoln's head, your tires need replacing.
