Air Pressure TipsFrom the experts at Kumho Tires
As you'll notice, Stylin' Trucks now carries Kumho high-performance tires for your truck or SUV. So to help you care for your tires properly we got these tire air pressure tips from Kumho.
What should I inflate my new tires to?
The importance of maintaining the proper air pressure cannot be overstated. Under-inflation can lead to excessive heat build-up and structural stress, and can cause a tire to fail. Over-inflation can cause uneven tire wear in the center portion of the tread pattern, and can also lead to vehicle handling problems.
Do not check tire pressure after the vehicle has been operated because tires heat up, causing the air pressure to rise. Allow them to cool, then perform your check.
Check your spare tire as well. The proper air pressure for a spare is often different than the tires mounted on your vehicle. The proper air pressure for your spare should also be listed in your owner's manual, door jam, or glove compartment.
Use a quality air gauge when checking the pressure (digital gauges are the most reliable) - or have a professional service technician do the work for you.
Maintaining proper air pressure will also contribute to better fuel efficiency. So check, be safe, and save!
