Look at your car manual to see what is the recommended tyre pressure. I always add a few more extra psi's. But watch out because too much will cause a centre wear in faster then the rest of the tyre which will cost even more for you if you have to replace your tyre. Never inflate above 40 psi or 280 kPa
Check your tyres at least once a month and before any long trip. It should also be check when the type is 'cold' as pressure increases as the tyre becomes hot.
You can find pressure gauges at any service station or you can buy a small compressor for home.
While your at it you might as well check your spare tyre too.
