Is Having the Wrong Tire Pressure Dangerous?

Keeping your tires at the right pressure is crucial to saving fuel and keeping you safe. Did you know that when you put too much air in a tire that you force the vehicle to operate on a tiny piece of the tread? This action means that you do not have enough surface area touching the road should you need to make an evasive maneuver.

Your tires can heat up fast and wear too soon when they do not have enough air. Running them with low air can reduce your traction making it difficult in dry conditions, let alone wet or icy times. Replacement costs for your tires will go up too because you have to buy new ones too soon.
