The importance of proper tire pressure

Your vehicle's tires play a crucial role in getting you to your destination safely. Keeping your tires properly inflated is a simple way to make your tires last longer, give you good traction, and improve your gas mileage.

If tires are underinflated, the rubber flexes more than it should, creating heat and extra friction between the tire and the road. Not only will this produce uneven wear on the tire, the extra friction can reduce your gas mileage, and in the worst case, cause a blowout. If tires are overinflated, the rubber bulges along the center of the tire, reducing traction between the tire and the road and causing uneven wear.

The tire pressure can be checked with a simple tire pressure gauge. If you aren't sure if your tires are properly inflated, our service team at Byers Volvo Cars in Columbus, OH is happy to help. Schedule an appointment with us today.
