Why You Should Keep Your Tires Properly Inflated


At Jaguar Tulsa, our service technicians can help you keep your tires properly inflated. It is vital to make certain that your tires aren't over-inflated or under-inflated because both can cause serious problems.

A tire that is under-inflated will be soft, which will put more strain on the outside edges of the tire. Not only does this create extra rolling resistance that makes your vehicle work harder, it can also hinder fuel economy. Tires that are under-inflated are subject to blowouts because the tread wears quickly and unevenly. When a tire is over-inflated, it will cause excessive wear on a thin strip in the center of the tire.

You should have your tires checked regularly to ensure they are at the manufacturer's recommended inflation level. When your tires are properly inflated, it will help your tires remain strong with adequate traction. In addition, routine tire rotations can help your tires last longer.
