The Correct Tire Pressure is Important for Safe Driving

For your vehicle to be at its optimum performance, it is a good idea to check the tire pressure frequently. Maintaining the correct pressure in your tires will assist with safe driving and improve performance and gas mileage.

Underinflated and overinflated tires are both considered to be improper tire pressure. The concerns with overinflation are the uneven weight distribution of the weight of the vehicle on the tread of the tire causing the weight to focus on the center strip of the tire. Underinflated tires cause the outside of the tire to work harder with less rolling resistance creating reduced gas mileage. The underinflated tire will also cause friction eventually degrading the tire which could cause a dangerous blowout or driving difficulty due to poor traction.
