Keep your tires properly inflated


Everyone knows that having quality tires helps your vehicle maintain traction and keeps your car driving safely. Many people don’t realize that improperly inflated tires can make their tires wear out prematurely and reduce their vehicle's gas mileage.

Every vehicle manufacturer recommends an inflation pressure for your tires. If your tires are over-inflated, they bulge in the center, reducing the contact area between the tire and road. This can reduce your vehicle’s traction and cause uneven wear on the center of the tire. If your tires are under-inflated, they flex too much, creating wear on their outer edges and generating heat that can damage the rubber. The tire flexing also creates more work for the engine, lowering gas mileage.

Have the qualified service people at Lance Cunningham Ford in Knoxville check your tire pressure today to improve your gas mileage and help make your tires last as long as possible.
