Why is Tire Pressure Important?

It's easy to overlook your tires; unless one goes flat, you might go for months without even thinking about them. Regularly checking the pressure is a good idea because ignoring your tires could actually cost you money.

Uneven wear is just one side effect of improperly inflated tires. If your tires don't have enough air in them, it will actually lower your gas mileage, because it forces your engine to work harder to move your car down the road. Your tires will also wear out much faster if they're over- or under-inflated, because they create uneven wear patterns that could even lead to a blowout.

There are some tire maintenance tasks you can do yourself, like checking the tire pressure. For other tasks, let us help you at Napleton's Autowerks of Indiana, Inc., where our certified mechanics can rotate your tires, switch them for a seasonally appropriate set or install a brand new set.
