Why Your Tire Pressure Matters

Your vehicles’ tires are the only parts that make contact with the road. Their role in your vehicle’s handling is vitally important. Having an understanding of the significance of proper air pressure will not only create a better and safer driving experience, but it will also add to the life of your tires.

When the tires are underinflated, that creates a great deal of heat because the tires have to work much harder at rotating. The extra wear affects the outer edges of the tire’s surface, and you will need to replace them sooner. The overinflated version creates a situation where you have overfilled the tire to the point that you’ve reduced the ability of the tread to grip the road. This situation also creates excess wear on the center of the tire.
