How are Tire Pressure and Tread Depth Connected?

Proper tire pressure is very important to the life of your tires. If you're driving around with low pressure, you can do more damage than you think. First, with incorrect pressure, you will wear down the tread about 25% faster than properly-inflated tires, which will cause you to have to purchase new tires more often. We don't have to tell you that is not cheap! Worst case scenario, complete tire failure could occur. The heat that is produced by the extra friction can cause your tire to blow and potentially result in an accident.

Also, gas mileage plays an important role in the importance of proper tire pressure. On average, people tend to spend an extra $500.00 a year, which they could have saved just by maintaining the correct pressure in each tire.

It can get a little confusing keeping up with the changing pressure due to things like the weather; for every 10 degrees it drops, your tires lose 1pps. So if you need a little help with this, or you want a professional to check, come on down to our auto service and repair shop in Rogersville, TN.
