Wear on Both Edges
- Reduces tread life through increased treadwear on the outside edges (or shoulders) of the tire.
- Generates excessive heat, which reduces tire durability and can lead to tire failure.
- Reduces fuel economy through increased rolling resistance (soft tires make your vehicle work harder).
Add air to your tire until it reaches the proper air pressure (psi, as measured by an air pressure gauge). To find the proper air pressure, consult your vehicle’s owner’s manual or find your recommended psi on the sticker on your door jamb. (Here's how.)
If your tire continues to lose pressure, visit your local Michelin authorized tire dealer.
