Cars are amazing devices that allow us to travel far distances in much less time than ever before. However, sometimes they can require a lot of maintenance. One of the most common issues with a car is simply low tire pressure. But why is tire pressure important? Many drivers don't understand why. What you should know is that there are things to do to keep your tires in good shape, including a simple and easy tire service.

Tire pressure is often overlooked. Some people don't think about the air pressure in their tires until they start to notice steering problems. Each car has a specified inflation pressure that is ideal for the specific car. The proper inflation pressure prevents damage to your wheel rims. If tire pressure is too low then too much weight may be put on your rims which can lead to damage. Rims are much more expensive to replace than tires.

Tire pressure that is too high is also a problem. If you put too much air into your tires then they could explode or ride unevenly. It is your job to provide the exact pressure that is meant for your tires. You will find it listed in your owner's manual or on a sticker on the driver's door jam.

Why is tire pressure important? Now you know. You also should realize that tire service is one of the easiest things to perform on your vehicle. You can invest in a tire pressure gauge to check your tires yourself, at least once a week. To check it, all you have to do is unscrew the cap on the tire nozzle and press the gauge onto the nozzle. The gauge will give you the exact pressure in the tire. If it is too low then you can add air with a pump or air compressor. Use the back of gauge to remove air. Of course, most auto shops will check your tire pressure for free at any time.

Hopefully, you will now understand why tire pressure is important. Contact our ASE-certified technicians today at Express Care Auto Center for more information about tire service and to schedule an appointment. Our auto repair shop serves vehicle owners in North Mankato, MN, and the neighboring communities of Mankato, MN, New Ulm, MN, and St. Peter, MN.
