Explore the Connection Between Tire Tread and Pressure

Your tires are where the rubber meets the road. Literally. So naturally, they will experience some of the worst wear and tear on your vehicle. When it comes to keeping that tread on your tires for as long as possible, there are some things that you can do.

In addition to keeping your tires regularly rotated, balanced, and aligned, the simplest (and arguably most effective and most important) thing that you can do is to keep the pressure in them at the recommended level. An over- or under-inflated tire is not only going to wear faster and more unevenly, but it will also be more dangerous to ride on. The recommended PSI is typically located on the information sticker inside the driver's door on most vehicles. There you will find the recommended PSI for both the front and the rear tires. The best thing that you can do is to check those levels once a week and add or remove air as needed in order to keep them at the proper PSI.
