Carmine is Essential for Safe Driving in Cold Weather

October 14, 2016 | By

Your customized Carmine has a handy and useful tire pressure gauge to ensure you don’t venture out on tires weakened due to cold weather.

It’s a chilly winter evening. You are still a long way from home on an isolated road and you get dreaded flat tire.

In cold weather areas, a flat tire is a nightmare. It could be due to a small puncture or the unchecked under-inflated tire. Whatever may the reason, the flat tire has an uncanny knack of happening just when you are in a hurry, or alone. No use kicking the tire then, you just got to keep calm and figure out what to do next.

Well, we say, why get into the situation at all. Do you know why your tire gives up in cold weather?

According to, “In cold weather, the chilly air inside car tires contracts, decreasing air pressure.  Mechanics use the rule of thumb that for every drop of 10 degrees Fahrenheit, tires lose 1 pound per square inch (PSI) of pressure. This pressure loss causes tires to flatten slightly, leaving the side sitting on the asphalt looking like a pancake.

Tires typically warm up when the car starts moving, but when the mercury hits about minus 30 F (minus 34 C), that doesn’t happen very quickly. The result is a bumpy ride as the car runs on not-quite-round wheels… Mechanics recommend everyone double-check tire pressure in the winter to make sure tires aren’t under-inflated due to cold weather.”

With your Carmine in your glove box, you got nothing to worry. Your customized Carmine has a handy and useful tire pressure gauge to ensure you don’t venture out on tires weakened due to cold weather.

Tire-testing engineer Gene Petersen writes in, “As winter approaches, many motorists will experience a low-pressure warning light on the dash or simply observe that the tires look a bit less full than they should. The main reason for this is the dropping temperatures, which cause the air to become denser and consequently lower the tire pressure. Of course, tires naturally lose pressure over time, and there can be a puncture.”

Gene says, “As a general rule, check the pressure monthly. Don’t wait for the tire pressure warning light from to come on.  It’s meant to alert you of a tire losing air while you’re driving, not serve as a maintenance reminder.

Even if your vehicle is equipped with TPMS, our recommendation is to use a gauge to check the pressure in all of your tires at least once per month, no matter what the weather is like.”

So there you are! Get your Carmine and face the cold weather with confidence.
