For people who need to be on the roads, making sure your tires are properly inflated will not only save you money at the pump, allow the tires to perform properly in the rain, but will also aid in proper wear.

  • Fuel Efficiency - For every 1 PSI drop in tire pressure the US Department of Energy estimates a loss of .4% in fuel efficiency. Although this may not seem like much, over time it can add up.

  • Wet Performance – When a tire is under inflated the contact patch won't be evenly distributed on the road surface. This restricts the treads ability to displace water properly and can cause hydroplaning.

  • Wear – Improper tire inflation can cause irregular treadwear and potentially damage, resulting in reduced life and early replacement.

Impossible to keep them properly inflated here when it’s 85° one day and 45° the next. I try though! Good thing I’m not driving as much lately
