Protect Your Tires With Proper Tire Pressure
Is it better to keep your tires too full or not full enough? Actually, that’s a trick question. The right answer is that it’s best to keep your tires at the pressure specified by your vehicle’s manufacturer.
When tire pressure is too high, not enough of the tire’s surface comes in contact with the road, and the center of the tire can quickly wear out. An overfilled tire may also be less resistant to damage. On the other hand, when tire pressure is too low, too much of the tire’s surface will touch the road, and its edges may wear out too quickly. Underinflated tires can hurt your car’s fuel economy. Therefore, it’s best to maintain proper tire pressure.
