It will help me save
- Checking tire air pressure, and regular tire maintenance such as rotation, alignment and inspections can help you save money
It can extend the life of your tires so you don’t have to buy as often
Simple things like checking your tires’ pressure to make sure that they are properly inflated can make a real difference in how long your tires last. Under or overinflated tires don’t wear evenly and won’t last as long. For example, a tire that is consistently 20% underinflated can last 20% less. That means a tire that should normally last 100,000 kilometres would be worn out by 80,000 kilometres. Also, since the front and rear axles and right and left sides of your car wear down your tires differently, rotating your tires regularly between the different positions will ensure they wear evenly and last longer.
It can save you money on fuel
- Underinflated tires are one of the biggest causes of using excess fuel.
- Underinflated tires have higher rolling resistance, which means it takes more effort from the engine to move your vehicle.
