Proper tire inflation can improve gas mileage by more than 3% or ten cents per gallon when maintained regularly. Save money and wear and tear on your tires! Your tires are the only thing between you vehicle and the road. When they are properly inflated and in good condition, handling, stability and safety of the vehicle are at their best. But when the tires are under inflated, worn out or damaged, all of the safety systems on the vehicle cannot overcome the loss of control that comes with a blow-out or hydroplaning.
Air pressure in a tire is like oil in an engine; when it is low, internal damage is unseen until it is too late. Tires naturally lose 1-2 psi per month, so ongoing neglect will eventually result in a tire that cannot support the weight of the vehicle and the occupants. When this happens, the resulting blow-out can result in the loss of control and an accident that is so easily avoided with a periodic check for tire wear or damage, especially after accidentally hitting a curb, pothole or road debris.
