Don’t Forget to Check Your Tire Pressure

Every car comes with a recommended tire pressure from the manufacturer. Regularly checking your tire pressure is an effortless way to extend the life of your tire and help you maintain good traction on the road.

Overinflated tires tend to bulge in the middle, creating uneven wear on the rubber. A bulging tire won't grip the road as well, reducing your traction. Underinflated tires bend and deform too much as you drive. The bending can heat up the rubber and damage the tire, leading to a blowout. Underinflated tires tend to make too much contact with the road, reducing your car's gas mileage.

To maintain proper tire pressure, use a tire pressure gauge regularly and make sure the pressure meets the manufacturer's recommendation. If you aren't sure if your tires are properly inflated, come see us at Ron Carter Ford and have our qualified team of experts inspect your tires.
