TUCSON, Ariz. - Increasing temperatures not only pose a risk on people, pets and plants, but also vehicles.

Experts said with every 10 degree temperature increase, the pressure inside of your tires increases by one pressure point.

BrakeMax employees said since temperatures began increasing, they've seen the number of customers with tire-related problems also increase. \

Employees suggested getting your tires regularly checked and never waiting for the tire pressure light to turn on.
