How to Inflate Tires

  1. Remove the valve stem caps on all of your tires (keep them in asafe place, like your pocket).
  2. Use an air pump to fill the tires.
  3. Inflate your tires when they are cold.
  4. You can usually set the desired PSI level on the machine at thegas station (probably around 30-35 PSI).

Also, how long does it take to inflate a car tire? If your tires are low on pressure, it maytake you several minutes of continuous pumping to fill eachtire. If you've filled your tires within the past fewmonths, and you're just topping them off, the process might last aslittle as 10-20 seconds.

Keeping this in consideration, can you inflate a completely flat tire?

You can easily inflate a completely flattire (provided the tube is still good). Usually, when atire is completely flat, you have to press theback of the tire so that the valve doesn't recess into thetire so your pump can be attached properly toit.
