Why is correct tire pressure important?

Published 13 July 2016 in

Correct tire pressure is important for several reasons;

  • Tire life – under or over inflated tires increase wear
  • Fuel economy – under inflated tires increase fuel consumption
  • Safety – under or over inflated tires will affect grip and braking performance
  • Ride comfort – over inflated tires can result in a harsh and uncomfortable ride
