Poor tire pressure can cause many avoidable problems when operating a vehicle. The issues are preventable because using a tire gauge to check the psi tells you whether the tires are overinflated or underinflated. Once you know the psi level, you can take steps to adjust it. And you do need to know the proper air pressure level, or else you risk serious problems while driving.

Two things can happen when there’s too much or too little air in the tires. For one, you may experience uneven or accelerated tread wear. Once the treads wear out, the tires lose their ability to handle well. Even if the treads are okay, too much or too little air also affects traction.

Poor traction due to improper air pressure can make driving in bad weather dangerous. In reality, even driving in mild weather in Chicago, IL comes with risks when tire pressure is incorrect.

Call Howard Orloff Volvo Cars and ask to speak to someone in the service department. Why take any risks with your tires?
