Why you should check tire air pressure often. There are times you may notice that one of the tires on your vehicle looks a little flat. Once you notice this you should check the pressure to see if you can figure out what’s the cause. It could be that it just needs some air, the tire needs repairing or replacing.

There are two main reason why you should check your tire pressure: To avoid an accident and to avoid being stranded. Here are some other reasons:

Better handling & traction. Regardless of the road conditions or the area you live in, handle and traction are very important. Having tires that are over or under inflated can diminish performance and increase the chances of an accident occurring.

Improve fuel economy. Under or over inflated tires can have an effect on your fuel which would naturally cost you more money.

Improve durability. You don’t want to be buying new tires more frequently than usual because tires are extremely expensive. Once properly inflated you can avoid this additional expense. Every time you go to the gas station to get gas you should check your tire pressure as well. This way you can spot in problems early enough.
