What is the Purpose of Tire Pressure?

Don't dismiss the necessity of keeping tabs on tire pressure. A car's tires come with a specified pressure level. A tire might need to stay at 33 PSI. If filled up to 40 PSI or allowed to drop down to 25 PSI, problems may arise. Many drivers don't pay much attention to tire pressure. They leave things alone until getting an oil change. The mechanic then may or may not check the pressure. You don't want to be this lax, though. Too many dangers surround weak tire inflation.

Both over and underinflated tires present a blowout risk. A blowout involves a tire coming apart due to heat and friction. Once the tire blows, a driver can lose control of the vehicle.

Improper tire pressure also impacts fuel economy. Miles per gallon levels drop making driving more expensive.
