The Reasons Why Tire Pressure Matters

Whether there is too much or too little pressure in the tires, it can have a negative impact on the health of the tires and the safety of your ride.

If the tire pressure is too high, the vehicle tends to ride on a very thin line in the center of the tires. Not only does that negatively impact the handling, but it can also wear the center of the tires too quickly. Less rubber on the road can also make it more challenging to drive in slick road conditions as the car keeps pulling off the highways. When the tire pressure is too low, now too much of the rubber is meeting the road. The rubber on the sides wears more quickly, and all that extra rubber on the road increases the friction and heat.
