Keep Those Tires Properly Inflated!

It’s a simple step, and it only takes a few seconds (and a compressor) to inflate your tires to the proper level. Check your owner’s manual or the side of your tire for the proper psi level. Check your current tire pressure with a tire pressure gauge. Properly inflated tires mean better car performance, better steering, and longer tire life. Improperly inflated tires will wear out more quickly, they’ll hinder your car’s performance, and they may cause alignment issues. Save yourself hundreds down the road, keep your tires properly inflated (and keep a tire pressure gauge handy!).
