The Danger of Too Much Tire Pressure

There is a good reason why tire manufacturers tell you how much air to put in them. If a tire has too much air in it, there may be issues getting traction in wet or slippery conditions. In some cases, an individual may have trouble getting traction in dry conditions as well.

A loss of traction could result in a bumpier ride for both the driver and passengers. Furthermore, when a tire has too much air in it, it will wear around the edges faster than it wears in the middle. Therefore, the tire may only last for 50 percent of its useful life.

Vehicle owners should make sure that their tires are properly inflated by checking them regularly. This may be done by hand or with an electronic device. Going to Key West Ford may also make it possible to get tires checked for proper pressure.
