If you’re a car enthusiast who spends a lot of time on the road driving the same vehicle, you might be able to tell if your tires are overinflated or underinflated. For the rest of us, that knowledge requires the help of professionals. Either way, ensuring your tires are properly inflated must be a priority.

You might be surprised to know that under-inflated tires can end up costing you a lot of money. That’s because not having enough air causes them to generate more heat, which can destroy the tread. In fact, it’s an issue that can lead to blowouts.

Another consideration is road conditions. In the event that you end up driving over less than ideal roads, tires that are underinflated or overinflated won’t be able to handle it as well. The result could be damage to the wheels.
