17 Places to Get a Free Tire Pressure Check Listed

Has your TPS (Tire Pressure System) light come on? Pressure sensors are known to be finicky but it’s best to get it checked.

Tire pressure changes frequently due to the temperature, time spent driving, when you last pumped air, and other conditions. Proper tire pressure can extend the life of your tires, improve gas mileage, and contribute to your safety on the road. It is best to check your tire pressure or have it checked at least once a month.

Below, we list the places that will check your tire pressure for free. Some of these businesses require you to first purchase another service, such as an oil change, but most offer free tire pressure checks without any purchase requirement.

Walmart is the easiest place to get your tire pressure checked for free. It does not require you to make an additional purchase to get a free tire pressure check, and it is open seven days a week. Since Walmart is a nationwide chain, you are also likely to find a Walmart store with this service in your area, whereas some of the other options on our list are regional.
