Did you know that tire pressure is an important condition to monitor? Under-inflated tires generate excessive heat build-up and stress, causing irregular wear and internal damage. Overinflated tires are more likely to be cut, punctured, or damaged when hitting an obstacle, such as a pothole.
Proper tire pressure gives tires the ability to support the vehicle’s weight. It also supports your ability to control your vehicle for maximum performance, which leads to maximized fuel economy.
