Tires are an important part of what makes your vehicle run correctly, and correct tire pressure is as important as the actual tires. Unfortunately, too many drivers have tires installed on their vehicle and forget to check the tire air pressure periodically. Operating your vehicle with the correct tire pressure is important for many reasons.

  • Correct tire air pressure will reduce the chance of having a flat tire or blowout.
  • If the tires are under-inflated, it can cause a rolling resistance, which can cause decreased fuel economy.
  • Under-inflated tires can cause uneven wear and tear on your tires, resulting in having to replace the tires prematurely.
  • Under-inflated and over-inflated tires can both be dangerous on the highway.
  • When incorrect air pressure causes tire damage, it can also cause damage to parts that are surrounding the tires.

The best way to ensure your tires always have the correct air pressure is to check them with a tire gauge or bring the vehicle in for service.
