What Makes Tire Pressure Important?

Tire pressure may not seem as important as some other aspects of maintaining your vehicle, but properly inflating your tires is more important than you might expect. It can keep you safer on the road and improve your gas mileage. However, improper inflation can cause a bevy of problems, from traction issues to wheel damage and blowouts.

Improperly inflated tires can be a danger to you and your vehicle, so it's important to have your tires inflated to the proper pressure whenever you bring your vehicle in for regular service. A little-known fact is that recommended tire pressure does not depend on the tire, but the vehicle. The number on the sidewall of your tire is the tire's maximum, your vehicle's maximum recommended pressure could be substantially different. It's always recommended to make sure that your tires are inflated to your vehicle's suggested pressure, not the maximum pressure of your tires.
