Make sure to check the air pressure on your tire without fail. Each month expect a small amount of air to disappear naturally. If there’s a leak anywhere, the loss could be more significant and rapid. Once tire pressure drops too low, then don’t expect problem-free vehicle operations.

Traction and handling become compromised when there’s insufficient air inside a tire. Also, treads will wear down quicker due to poor contact with the road. Besides the added cost of replacing the tire sooner rather than later, safety issues emerge. So check the psi when putting gasoline in the car if not more frequently.

Do not over inflate the tire, either. Overinflation also compromises traction handling. Concerns about the tire blowing apart in Alexandria, VA also arise. Blowouts can lead to severe accidents, which can also occur when “only” dealing with reduced traction.
