In my toyota Camry, it is easy because they have tire pressure gauges builtin. ON my other cars, I do it about once a month except when I have a tire I know is having a problem.

Do check about 1 per month. Outside air temp seems to be the changing tire pressure.

At home daily I always glance at each tire before I leave, being parked on concrete most of the time. Then twice a month if the daily temps change in range or stabilize in the cold to hot of the day, then I only check pressure once a month, that occurs mainly during the heat of Summer >>> 74.... 94 F degrees difference,

The actual tire temps can swing more than 20 degrees in difference for various reasons, so a periodic check is good if heavier loads are applied for transport, car or truck. Tire gauges vary, I stay with a good quality dial type which was tested against a labratory reference type at work.

Have automatic pressure indicator so I don't manually check my tires, however, they are checked at regular service intervals.

Every few days, keep them at 42 PSI. With my car, at 35 PSI they lose about 2 MPG, so I keep them right up.

No I don't check the pressure in my tire very often because I've been lax about riding the unicycle of late.

But I do check the air in the tires of my cars and motorcycles fairly often.
