Goldilocks and The Three Bears is a Lot Like Tire Pressure

Driving on vehicles with incorrect tire pressure is risky -- disaster could strike at any time and any speed, as it affects how your vehicle responds to steering and braking input. Tires with incorrect pressure aren’t only dangerous, but can also change your vehicle’s gas mileage and overall performance.  When you drive on underinflated tires, the contact patch between your car and the road surface increases, this increased contact patch leads to more friction between the tire and road surface, which results in more wear on the tire and fuel consumptio ... read more
