95% of your vehicle’s weight is supported by your car tire’s air pressure, with the tire supporting just 5%, making inflation a critical part of tire’s ability to perform.
70% of vehicles have at least one tire with an inflation problem.
23% of vehicles have at least one tire under-inflated by more than 20%, this will increase fuel consumption, reduce tire life, and increase greenhouse gas emissions.
Driving with one tire under inflated by 20% results in consuming approximately two weeks more of fuel per year and reduces your tire’s life by six to nine months.
17% of vehicles have at least one tire over inflated by more than 20%, this will result in excessive tire wear and reduced vehicle handling.
In addition to a monthly tire pressure, you should regularly check your car’s alignment. It is also important to check your tread wear. Poor alignment will cause your tires to wear unevenly and you may experience handling problems, such as “pulling” or vibration. Poor alignment will also increase your fuel consumption.
Your tires wear at different rates, tires rotation can extend their useful life. A general guideline for tire rotation is approximately every 10,000 km, but check your owner’s manual for the recommended interval.
Visually inspect the tires to make sure there are no embedded objects, cuts or abrasions in either the tread or sidewall area. To prevent skidding and hydroplaning, tires must be replaced when the tread is worn.
These tires were also driven in without the driver knowing the tires are on the verge of self destruction.
Getting your car checked regularly and having an alignment performed as part of your yearly maintenance it will prevent this kind of disaster and saves your tires to last, and last but not least may save your life.
After all your life depends on your tires and your car. Have a safe drive every day.
