3-16. TIRE INFLATION
a. General. Tires require a weekly pressure check. Inflation pressure is one of the most
important elements of tire care. Pressure recommendations for tires on all models have
been carefully selected to provide good tire life. See table 1-4 for recommended tire
pressures. Check and adjust tire pressures when tires are cold, because pressures normally
increase during operation. Never decrease pressure of warm tires except for operations in
mud, sand, or snow. Reinflate tires which were deflated for operations in mud, sand, or
snow after operations are completed.
b. Tire Gaging.
(1) Remove tire inflation gage (10), and hose (4) assembly from tool compartment.
(2) Start at one corner of vehicle and gage all tires. Remove tire valve caps, apply
tire gage air chuck (8) on tire valve (7), and press down to read tire pressure on gage dial
(9). Reinstall tire valve caps and tighten caps finger tight.
