The correct inflation will help your tires last longer and help you (and your passengers) be safer on the roads.
You're planning to go to the I Am for the Child Music Festival, but you're wondering if you should do a bit of New Orleans auto care before you leave. The dashboard light that signals that your tires need air has been on for a couple of weeks now. You've pretty much ignored it because your tires look okay. But before you drive even the short distance to Metairie, you're wondering if you should have a New Orleans auto care expert check things out.
The short, easy and safe answer is - yes. Yes, you should have a New Orleans auto care expert take a look. As tire manufacturer Michelin says, "Simple things like checking your tires’ pressure to make sure that they are properly inflated can make a real difference in how long your tires last. Under or over-inflated tires don’t wear evenly and won’t last as long."
Not only that, under-inflated tires decrease your gas mileage and your safety.
"Your tires are the only point of contact that your vehicle has with the road – they need to be in good working condition at all times to ensure your safety," Michelin says.
Of course, the best place to get your tires checked out and taken care of (inflated, rotated and balanced) in New Orleans is Twin Tire Auto Care.
