Under-inflated tires have a higher risk of damage and failure. They wear out faster if under-inflated. Faster deterioration which leads to lesser control of your vehicle, tire blowouts, and can cause accidents.
Fuel mileage is reduced by .2% for every 1 PSI (pound per square inch) your tire pressure drops below the recommended level. When your tires are kept at proper pressure, you could save up to 3% in mileage, depending on the vehicle.
What Is PSI
PSI stands for pounds per square inch. This is determined by your vehicle’s manufacturer, and it’s how you can tell if your tires are properly inflated.
Always use the pressure recommended by your vehicle’s manufacturer to ensure best performance. We at Al Fatah ensure your tires are at the optimum pressure for best control and performance.
Check your tire pressure each month, as they can lose pressure within that time from simple daily use.
In addition, it’s important to check pressure due to rise in temperature. Tires react quickly to changes in temperature, and a rise in heat can cause rapid pressure loss.
