Maintaining Proper Tire Pressure Keeps You Safe

We’re sure that you know just how important having good tires are for your driving safety. But did you know that the air pressure can cause a tire to become unsafe if not properly maintained? An overinflated tire is just as bad as an underinflated tire. That’s because if a tire has a weak spot, overinflating makes the tire even more vulnerable to a blow-out.

An underinflated tire can also cause a blowout, especially at higher rates of speed due to the high amount of heat generated. If you’re finding that you have to put air in your tires more often, then you may be in need of new tires. More than likely, a puncture is causing the leak.

Schedule an appointment with Roger Shiflett Ford to have a safety inspection of your tires. Call our service department in Gaffney, SC, or go online to use our service scheduler.
