Tire Pressure Maintenance

Keeping your tire pressure at an optimal level is a simple way to increase gas mileage, improve handling, and reduce the risk of accidents. When tire pressure is too low, too high, or uneven between the tires, a driver is at an increased risk of losing control of the vehicle. Unfortunately, not everyone checks their tire pressure regularly and as a result may needlessly increase the risk of a motor vehicle accident.

If you or someone you know has been injured in an accident caused by motorist who was negligent in the maintenance of his or her vehicle, you may be able to seek compensation for your injuries and other losses.

Maintaining Tire Pressure

When checking your tire pressure, it is important to keep the following advice in mind:

  • Check tire pressure at least once every month, and after changes in temperature. Since it is very difficult to detect differences in tire pressure simply by looking, it is important to use a quality tire pressure gauge,
  • Inflate tires to the pressure level listed in your vehicle owner’s manual, not the pressure listed on the side of the tire. The pressure printed on the tire is the maximum allowable pressure for that tire, not the optimal pressure for your vehicle.

By keeping your tire pressure at the right level, you can increase the longevity of your tires and the performance of your vehicle, reducing the risk of accidents.
