Why is Tire Pressure and Tread Important?

Anyone who’s been stuck on the side of the road knows the answer to that question. Tires are a key component in your car’s ability to get you where you’re going. Keeping them maintained with the correct air pressure is one way to ensure you arrive safely at your destination.

One of the reasons the transmission in your vehicle works is because of the tires’ ability to create friction with the road’s surface. The appropriate tread depth allows tires to flex as they meet the pavement. The proper tread also repels water when the surface is wet. Any irregularities in the pressure affects their ability to perform correctly.

Tire pressure affects your ability to handle the vehicle. It also ends up costing you in unneeded expenses if not properly inflated. Stop by our service center at Weston Nissan the next time you’re in Ft. Lauderdale, and we’ll be glad to help you with any questions you have regarding tire maintenance.
