Get your tire pressure checked today

Have you checked your tire pressure lately? Improperly inflated tires can cause unwanted wear, reduce your vehicle’s traction, and lower your gas mileage.

When tires are over-inflated, the rubber in the center of the tire bulges, reducing contact between the tire and the road and lowering traction. Over time, this causes the rubber in the center to wear more quickly than the outer edges. On the other hand, when tires are under-inflated, the outer edges flex more than they should, creating more friction between the tire and the road and making your engine work harder. The flexing of the tire creates heat, which damages the rubber and ruins the tire.

The service people at Lithia Ford Lincoln of Grand Forks know the proper tire pressure for your vehicle. They can inspect your tires and inflate them to the correct pressure, extending the life of your tires and improving your vehicle's gas mileage.
