Learn Proper Tire Inflation

Incorrect tire pressure is the main reason tires wear out faster than expected.
Over inflation or under inflation of the tire pressure can aggravate any steering geometry-related tire wear complaint. The tire pressure monitoring systems required as standard equipment for the 2008 model year have gone a long way to reduce tire wear complaints. With that said, under-inflation still tends to wear both outer edges, while over-inflation tends to wear the center of the tire tread. As you can see in the tire pictured below, since the outside tread ribs are largely intact while the center shows the most wear than this tire obviously suffered from over-inflation.

Here are Your Next Tire when we mount and balance tires we make sure that tire pressure is set to the manufacturers standards. If you have a 2008 or newer vehicle pay attention to the TPMS system when it indicates errors. If your vehicle is older make sure to regularly check air pressure in your tires especially with the temperature constantly changing like Nebraska weather.
