Almost everybody knows that under-inflated tires are bad for a vehicle, but many people aren’t sure why. The technicians here at Alderson Cadillac are your partners in automotive maintenance, and we want every driver in Lubbock, TX to understand the consequences of poor tire care.

Over-inflating your vehicle’s tires can cause them to wear out sooner than expected and may even lead to a dangerous blow-out. Under-inflating tires can also cause them to wear out quickly due to increased abrasion along the sides. Handling and control may also be diminished.

Failing to keep your tires at the right pressure can have impacts that reach far beyond the tires themselves. In order to maintain the same speed, the engine must work harder to overcome the added resistance. This can cause engine parts to break down and boost overall fuel consumption.
