Check The Tread And Pressure On Your Tires To Be Safer And Get Better Mileage

Tire tread and tire pressure can be easily overlooked when it comes to driving on Glen Cove, NY roads. We at Volvo Cars Glen Cove want to highlight the importance and benefits of maintaining a proper tread level and pressure on the tires of your vehicle.

Both over-inflation and under-inflation of a tire will result in that tire being worn out quicker. Over-inflation and under-inflation will also make it more difficult to move the car and can reduce the mileage you get from each gallon of gas. Improperly inflated tires also have worse traction and are more likely to blow out on the road. Check your tire pressure with a manual or electronic gauge and be sure to inflate it a level specified by the vehicle manufacturer.

Tire tread refers to the wear of the tire. A worn-out tire will have less traction and can result in the vehicle spinning out of control during slippery conditions. Many new tires have wear bar indicators that will let you know when it is time to change them.
