What is the Importance of Proper Tire Pressure?

Keeping your tires properly inflated is an important safety issue. If your vehicle has underinflated tires, then the outside of the tire works harder than the center, which creates additional rolling resistance. This can translate to reduced fuel efficiency.

Along with underinflation, it's also possible to overinflate your tires, and that also creates problems. It distorts the shape of the tire, which reduces traction and causes the center of your tire to wear down faster. Underinflated tires also cause your tires to wear faster and can lead to a blowout. It's important to know that proper tire inflation is specific to your vehicle, not the tire, so don't use the indicated sidewall pressure amount. You can usually find the right pressure for your vehicle in your owner's manual

Have your tires professionally inspected and replaced if necessary by visiting Honda of Frontenac at your next convenience.
