Too Much Air | Bixby Auto Care

If your tires aren’t correctly inflated, you’re asking for trouble. For Bixby tire care you can trust, see the Bixby auto care pros at Same Day.

When you were driving home from work last night, you noticed your tire pressure light had come on. You guess you’d better stop today and get one or more of your tires topped off with air on your way home from the Route 66 Marathon.

This isn’t the first time this has happened recently and you’re wondering if it might make better sense to inflate your tires to the maximum allowed. Maybe you wouldn’t have to stop so often to get them topped off.

That might sound like a good idea, but it’s not.

Howstuffworks.com explains: “First, a tire that is over inflated shows more wear along the center width of the tire than along its edges. When your tires develop uneven tread wear, it shortens the overall life expectancy of your tire. … By driving with over-inflated tires, you'll have to replace them sooner.

“The proper inflation level on your tires also affects how much load your car can carry. Every car comes with a tire-load rating that tells you the maximum weight that your tires can bear. However, just as with the UTQG rating, the tire-load rating assumes properly inflated tires. If you over inflate your tires and overload the weight your car can carry, you're creating the perfect recipe for a tire to blow out.

You might also consider this – if you’re frequently having to inflate your tires, you might have a slow leak. So, the first thing is to find a Bixby auto care technician to check on their condition. Second, ask that Bixby auto care technician what the best inflation is for your tires, your car and the conditions under which you’re driving.
