The Importance of Tire Pressure

Uneven wear on your tires can be the cause of tire blowouts or require replacement sooner, increasing your costs. Understanding how tire pressure affects your tires can help you to be a more informed car owner and save money in the long run.

When your tires are overinflated, the weight of the car is directed onto the center of the tire, causing it to wear out more quickly. Underinflated tires tend to wear along the edges. Both situations reduce the efficiency of your tires, causing you to use more gasoline to propel your car down the road. Regularly test your tire pressure and keep them inflated according to vehicle guidelines.
