Why is it Important to Monitor Tire Pressure?
Tire pressure is a simple but important item to check on your vehicle. It is a good idea to check the pressure every month. Be sure to check the pressure of your spare tire at the same time.
A car with under-inflated tires costs more money to operate. Under-inflated tires reduce the fuel economy, and tires that are not adequately inflated wear out quicker. That means you’ll be buying new tires sooner than later. A deflating tire can cause dangerous driving conditions.
Over-inflated tires contribute to a stiffer ride, and the car and passengers will feel a bumpy road or potholes. It is easy to check your tires at home with a tire gauge. The gauges are inexpensive and sold at all automotive stores.
