A tire pressure question. How much do you inflate tires in the severe cold, ie. Alaska. Should they be inflated to recommended PSI at their cold temperature? They are doing an event called Pump it up on March 17. Answer: check tire pressure when the tires are cold. When set at -30, however, remember that the pressure goes up one pound per 10 degrees of air temperature.
