As the air got cooler during winter, your tires started to deflate! Continental Tires estimates that every 10°C decrease in temperature drops your tire’s pressure 1-2 pounds per square inch. Sometimes our guests remember to fill up their tires during the winter, but sometimes they forget! On the flip side, drivers will often over-inflate their tires, as the warmer spring weather can cause an increase in tire pressure.
Driving with tires that are out of the manufacturer’s recommended pressure range can decrease the tire’s traction and cause distortion. This can increase the risk of tire blowout, leaving the driver in a tough position! Come by 5691 Mooretown Road, and we will help make sure that your tires are in the recommended range!
