What kind of roads are you traveling on? If you're like most drivers, you have had to experience some challenging road conditions while driving. A study from TRIP, a national transportation research group, shows that about 33 percent of major roadways are in poor condition. This means that, at some point, it is very likely that your vehicle will come in contact with a road that is less than safe.
Extensive driving on these roads can cause damage to your vehicle’s tires – and that price adds up. Therefore, you want to make sure your tires are in optimum condition to handle driving along the roads that you must travel on. The experts at Long-Lewis Ford Lincoln are here to help.

It is necessary to ensure that your tires are properly inflated, and there are great advantages for doing so. When your vehicle's tires are properly inflated, it can help to improve your fuel economy by about 2 percent*. This means that as you invest in quality tires for your vehicle, you will also enjoy the benefit of saving money on gas and reducing your trips to the service station. Proper inflation also optimizes your vehicle’s performance and handling, which will help you to feel safe and secure behind the wheel.
Improper tire inflation is a major cause of tire damage. As you travel, your tires gradually lose pressure. Over time, this can cause irregular tread wear – which is very hazardous for driving. On average, tires lose air at the rate of one pound per month. In colder temperatures, a tire will lose one pound of pressure for every 10-degree drop. This means that if you are not observant, it is possible for your tire pressure to be decreasing without you noticing it.
There is a simple solution to this problem. You should check your tire pressure at least once a month to determine the status of your tires. Additionally, your vehicle may be equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system that alerts you when your tire pressure is at an unsafe level. Be proactive about your driving safety by ensuring that your vehicle’s tires are always up to par.
