Why Tire Pressure Matters to Your Car

The last thing you need is to lose control of your vehicle due to incorrect tire pressure. Tires that have too little or too much air can create significant problems for you. At the very least, they will needlessly cost you extra money.

When your tires are underinflated, they have to expend extra energy to move your vehicle down the road. That creates excess heat and wear. The tires’ outer edges and sides are eventually damaged as a result. On the flip side, driving with over-inflated tires creates a situation where you can easily lose control of your vehicle because the tires’ inability to generate traction with the pavement. You could find yourself skidding, particularly if the surface is wet or icy. Additionally, you unevenly wear your tires at their center.
