My good friend Monica is in public relations and a very fast thinker. I had to work overtime to convince her of the importance of her tire's valves.
They don't look like much but the valves of a tire are a
complex piece of engineering comprised of metal tubes,
springs, rubber and plastic. Valves perform a
vital task in keeping your car and its tires
functioning as they were designed. So whether you're
busy shopping, rushing to an appointment or on your
way to a friend's house, be glad that your valves
are doing their job.
Typical Tire Valve
The valves are used to inflate your tire or adjust the air pressure, they automatically close or open when you need them to. Just a single grain of sand is enough to cause your valve to leak so remember to keep the cover on them. If you discover a valve cover missing, have it replaced as soon as you can.
Most professional tire dealers will change the valve when installing a new tire. It's worth checking if your dealer is doing it for you.
