Tire Pressure Is an Important Aspect of Auto Maintenance

Tire maintenance is a necessary part of vehicle maintenance. Along with checking the fluids, vehicle owners should regularly check the pressure of their vehicle's tires to ensure that the tires are inflated correctly. If the tires are not inflated properly, they can fail and conceivably cause an accident.

You can easily check the tire pressure with a pressure gauge. The correct pressure can be found in the vehicle's doorsill, glove compartment door or fuel door. It can also be found in the owner's manual. If the tires are under-inflated, they can wear unevenly, have less traction and even cause a blowout. The vehicle will also become less efficient with fuel. Over-inflated tires will cause the tires to wear more in the middle of the tire and can lead to tire failure.

If you would like to have your tires checked for the proper inflation, bring your vehicle in to Fremont Ford in Newark, CA and our service representatives will be glad to assist you with any auto service you need.
