Now that you’re more aware of how tire pressure affects your fuel economy (you pay more attention when you’re paying $4.50 a gallon for gas, after all) you’re no doubt checking it more often.

Now that you’re more aware of how tire pressure affects your fuel economy (you pay more attention when you’re paying $4.50 a gallon for gas, after all) you’re no doubt checking it more often. So, just how many valve-stem caps are still on your wheels? Without caps, the valves become covered in dirt, mud and water that’s forced in the next time you go to add a little air. That leads to leaks, low pressure, unnecessary tire wear and, usually, a flat at the worst possible time. Keeping track of the caps is a little easier with Capsure Tethered Tire Caps that stay attached to the tire valve even when removed for a top up of air. The caps themselves are made of stainless steel (in machined or polished finish) for long life and the rubbery tethers (available in several colors) are protected from the damaging effects of sunlight so they can do their job. At just $15 a set, they make good sense for anyone with four wheels. Visit
