Tire Pressure Adjustment
Why Should You Have Your Tire Pressure Checked and Adjusted?
Tire pressure can have a noticeable impact on the performance and safety of your car. It can influence handling, fuel-economy, tire wear, risk of tire blowouts, and more. Under-inflated tires result in higher friction between the tire and the ground because more rubber is in contact with the ground. Higher friction means more energy is needed for the car to move forward which results in decreased fuel-efficiency. Improper inflation also puts stress on the tires which can result in excessive and uneven wear. This can result in loss of handling, risk of tire blowout, and the need to replace tires before they reach their rated life expectancy.
How Often Should You Have Tire Pressure Checked?
Because the pressure in your tires can easily change due to a number of different factors, it is important to check the pressure regularly. Our skilled technicians can check the pressure and adjust it to the proper levels if needed. Please remember to consult your owner’s manual for any specific recommendations.
