Improper inflation is one of the most common causes of tire failure, and a leading cause of “rubber on the road.” An under-inflated tire bends as it rolls. This causes internal heat, and failure of the steel belting inside the tire. Under-inflation also reduces stability, control, and fuel efficiency.
An over-inflated tire can also be dangerous. When a tire has too much internal pressure, the footprint is reduced, causing less contact with the road. This reduces traction and stability. Excess pressure also harms a tire’s ability to flex when needed, creating an uncomfortable ride, and increasing the chance of damage from potholes and other rough surfaces.
Huber Tire recommends keeping your tires properly inflated in accordance with manufacturer specifications, and establishing a regular schedule of pressure checks with an accurate gauge.
