The Dangers Of Low Tire Pressure – They Are Real

The Dangers Of Low Tire Pressure ? They Are Real | Wiygul Automotive Clinic

tires 02-12-18 Share:

Ensuring your tires are properly inflated is an essential component of keeping your family safe on the streets of Burke, VA. When maintaining the tire pressure in your vehicle tires, you also keep the environment healthy and money in the bank at the same time — it’s a win-win situation no matter how you look at it.

When the tires on your car, truck or SUV are not properly inflated to the manufacturer’s recommended pressure, they will require more energy — or gas — to begin moving and then to maintain speed as well. The more energy you use (or the more gas you use) the more you spend and the higher the demand on fossil fuels, thereby negatively impacting the environment.

As fuel prices continue to rise to new all-time highs in the Northern Virginia area, keeping your tires inflated properly also will improve your car’s gas mileage by saving fuel, and will also reduce emissions. As the tires maintain proper pressure, the tires will last longer and wear more evenly, again saving you money and improving your safety.

One quick hint to knowing when your tire pressure is too low: when you turn a corner and hear the tires squeal or squeak — that’s the sound of low tire pressure. To get the biggest bang for your buck when it comes to your tires and your fuel, check the air pressure in your tires at least once per month and add air as needed.
