AskPatty Tips for Tire Safety 2: Properly inflated tires save you at the gas pump!
Check tire pressures monthly with a quality air pressure gauge and keep them filled to the vehicle’s manufacturer specifications listed in your manual or inside your vehicle's doorjamb.
Improper inflation can cause uneven tread wear, shorten lifespan and decrease your car’s responsiveness. Under-inflated tires offer less traction, wear out prematurely, and most importantly suffer unnoticeable and irreparable damage that compromises performance.
In addition, keeping your tire pressure at the recommended level can boost fuel efficiency by about a mile per gallon. The Department of Transportation estimates that 5 million gallons of fuel per day are wasted due to low tire pressure.
