Tire air pressure

Find out why maintaining proper air pressure in your tires is so important by reading the points below. For a professional evaluation, find a Tire & Service Network location near you.

  • Underinflation increases treadwear on the outer edges, and generates excessive heat, which can age tires faster
  • Fuel economy is reduced as rolling resistance increases — soft tires make your vehicle work harder
  • Too much air pressure causes the center tread to carry most of the car's weight, leading to faster deterioration and uneven wear

To find the proper air pressure for your tires, look in your vehicle's owner's manual, on the sticker on the driver's side doorjamb, or in the glove box.
