Pressure and Tread for Your Tires

Tires are crucial to the performance of your vehicle. They're your points of contact with the road. If, for some reason, you lose traction, you can have real problems. Two important considerations when it comes to your tires are the tread and the pressure.

The tire tread is what grips the surface that you're driving on. Bald tires will contribute to skidding and being unable to stop in poor weather conditions. Tire rotation can prevent this, by ensuring that your tires wear evenly.

For optimum performance, your tires should also be within the range of pressures set by the manufacturer. Underinflated tires have too much contact with the road surface. This increases friction, which makes them wear more quickly. Underinflated tires can even lead to blowouts, a very dangerous situation that no one wants to experience.
