- In Maintenance Tips
Proper tire pressure is critical to the health and performance of your vehicle. Did you know that under or over inflated tires can:
- Cause uneven tread wear
- Reduce traction
- Reduce gas mileage
- Reduce the life of your tires
Improperly inflated tires put unnecessary strain on certain parts of your tire, cause uneven wear, and increase the chance of an inconvenient flat or a dangerous tire blowout. Under inflated tires make it harder for your vehicle to roll, which reduces your gas mileage.
Be sure to check your tire pressure regularly and maintain the recommended pressure listed in your vehicle’s owner’s manual.
Jiffy Lube of Indiana centers will check and properly inflate your tires to the recommended levels as part of the Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil Change.
