Why You Should Care About Tire Pressure

We at Star Motor Cars Volvo want everyone to understand why tire pressure is so important. Safety and money both ride on your tires.

Tires that are driven for extended periods at improper pressure develop uneven and excessive wear. This means earlier replacement and is not covered by any warranties on the tires. The entire vehicle, especially the suspension system, is meant to work with tires of a certain pressure, so there is also more risk of damage from road hazards with improperly inflated tires.

Overinflated or underinflated tires cannot provide the traction they are capable of. This can cause loss of control, even on dry roads. And don’t let anyone tell you that overinflated tires provide better traction or fuel economy. Overinflation is just as bad as underinflation in all respects.

Don’t risk driving on unsafe tires. Come have your tires inspected or replaced at Star Motor Cars Volvo. We are conveniently located in Houston, TX.
