Why Maintaining Proper Air Pressure Is Important

Posted at Mon, Oct 24, 2016 4:00 PM

Did you know that keeping the correct air pressure in the tires of your car, truck, SUV or crossover will help your tires last longer, save fuel, help your vehicle handle better, prevent accidents and even help the environment?

The Benefits of Correct Air Pressure

Experts agree that maintaining the correct air pressure is nearly as important as getting a tune-up for your engine. The negative effects of under-inflated tires include poor gas mileage, shorter tire life and poor vehicle handling.

Make Air Pressure Checks Part of Your Maintenance Routine

Tires are often taken for granted since they don’t seem to need much attention. But, did you know that tires lose pressure each day? In cool weather, a tire typically loses one or two pounds of air per month and in warmer weather, tires can lose air pressure at an even higher rate. Other factors can cause a loss of tire pressure, as well.

Check the air pressure on a regular basis, such as every other time you get gas. You should also have the air pressure checked when the tires are rotated. It’s also important to remember to have the pressure in your spare tire checked every few months.

Where To Find Air Pressure Information
The correct air pressure can be found in the vehicle owner's manual or on the tire information label that is attached to the vehicle door edge, doorpost, glove box door or fuel door.

Environmental Impact
Routine air pressure maintenance can have a significant impact on our environment. Experts estimate that most drivers lose 10% to as much as 50% of tire tread life when their tires are under-inflated. This means more tires ending up in our landfills. Underinflated tires burn extra fuel since they require extra energy to roll down the road.
