How the Tire Pressure Will Affect Your Car Ride

The tire pressure indicators in your vehicle alert you when the pressure is no longer within the recommended range. Here is what happens to the car tires when you are not getting the correct pressure in the car tires.

If the pressure in the car tires is too low, then more of the tire is riding on the road surface and wearing faster. This is because there is an increase in friction and heat, which not only makes it harder to drive, it opens the door for the potential of a tire blowout. If the tire pressure is too high, then what happens is less of the tire is not gripping the road surface. This makes it harder to control the car, especially when the road conditions deteriorate.
